S. WINDSOR, CT – For its 15th Annual Golf Classic, September 25, the Connecticut Carwash Association moved its venue to the picturesque and challenging Topstone Golf Course here. The venue and weather were picture perfect, according to CCA President Todd Whitehouse. “You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day,” said Whitehouse. “Our attendees had a great experience here and everything just clicked.”
The 18-hole event includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, extensive raffle prizes and a chance to win a lease on a car! “It’s really a great outing for the money,” said Whitehouse. “We have purposefully kept our registration fee low so it is affordable to members and non members alike.”
