Sullivan-Bouthilette Golf Outing Raises $2800. For Scholarships

Leeds, MA - A combined 100 years of membership in the Tee & Divot League at Northampton Country Club by the late Don Sullivan and Jerry Bouthilette, prompted golfers and non-golfers from across the valley to come together July 17, 2016 to raise scholarship money in their memory.

Organized by Paul Garvey, 80 golfers played in the 9-hole Scramble at the Leeds club. Entry fees, on-course contests, raffles and donations resulted in more than $2800 added to long-existing Sullivan Family Memorial Scholarship and Jerry Bouthilette Memorial Scholarship, each administered by Northampton Dollars for Scholars.
