Proceeds to Fund increase access to mental health and behavioral health services for children and youth, address substance use disorder with impactful education and recovery programs and reduce stigma around mental health and addiction.

This year’s Drive for a Difference golf classic hosted 116 golfers who took to the links at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, MA. Following the tournament, golfers and guests enjoyed a Clubhouse reception. The event featured an online auction that included exclusive travel packages, golf outings, theater and dining experiences, and more. 

The Foundation’s annual Fund-A-Need initiative was highlighted in support of on-going Community Recovery Grants. In 2021, approximately $800,000 was given by the Foundation in community support, with an anticipated $850,000 in 2022 to address pressing community health needs. 

More than 45 local organizations provided generous event support, including: The Dubilo Hill Group/Graystone Consulting, Epic, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Tufts Health Plan, Aponi Aesthetics, Fallon Health, Wagner Auto Group, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA and others.
