Fiondella Golf Tournament a Big Hit
182 Golfers Swing for Local Charities
AVON – Although the morning started off a little overcast, the meteorologists got it right. It was a perfect day for golf in September! The 9th Annual Fiondella Charity Golf Tournament was held on September 10th at the Golf Club of Avon. The outing is always a “first class” event and many of the golfers are repeat supporters. Funds that are raised go to the Boys and Girls Club and Family Center of Bristol, the Literacy Volunteer Organization of Greater Hartford, and The Salvation Army of Greater Hartford.

Lisa Cretella, Director of Development at The Salvation Army, reflected, "This is an event we look forward to each year. The Fiondella family knows how to put on a superb event for great causes and The Salvation Army is lucky to be a part of it! Kids in Hartford are blessed to have someone as philanthropic as Bob Fiondella. The funds raised at the golf tournament have helped many of our programs, and one can see the benefits as you visit our locations across Hartford."
(Bob addressing attendees during the dinner/awards portion of the event.)
The tournament is dedicated in loving memory to Theresa Fiondella, Bob Fiondella's mother. Cretella went on to say, "While I never had the privilege of meeting Theresa Fiondella, I imagine her to be the matriarch of the family - she certainly created what would become generations of true philanthropists. What a great legacy to have!"
Bob Fiondella is a Bristol native who rose through the ranks to become the CEO of the Phoenix Life Insurance Company. Although Bob retired from Phoenix in 2002, he has devoted his time to helping others in the Greater Hartford area ever since.
We are excited to once again promote and support this worthwhile golf tournament!
