golfers in Reliant Foundation Drive For a Difference

Fundraiser Has Generated More Than $6 Million For Essential Community Health Needs

On Monday, May 22, Reliant Foundation will host the 25th Anniversary Drive for a Difference Golf Classic and Auction at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, Massachusetts. Over the last 24 years, Reliant Foundation has raised more than $6 Million for essential public health programs across Central and MetroWest Massachusetts.

“The Drive for a Difference has gone through some evolution over the years, but one thing has remained constant – the unwavering support of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers,” said Kelsa Zereski, President of Reliant Foundation. “It’s because of them that we’ve been able to continue supporting programs across the region that address mental health and behavioral health – particularly for children and youth, recovery programming for individuals battling substance use disorder, and initiatives aimed at battling the stigma associated with these issues.”

Golf spots have filled up quickly, but several high-visibility sponsorship opportunities are still available. Among the dozens of organizations sponsoring this year are: North Bridge Wealth Management (25th Anniversary Sponsor); Country Bank (Cocktail Sponsor); Mass General Brigham Health Plan (Gift Sponsor); Dr. Marianne Felice (Auction Sponsor); The Hanover Insurance Group Foundation and Point32Health Foundation (Golf Cart Sponsors); Dr. Robert Klugman (Snack Cart Sponsor); Fallon Health, Harmony Health Group, and Robert Half Management Resources (Lunch Sponsors). 

Following the round, Reliant Foundation will welcome golfers and other guests to the cocktail reception, dinner, auction and awards program. The online auction offers supporters the opportunity to bid on items throughout the day including exclusive getaways, concerts, dining experiences, sporting events, and more.
