Event Recap: Twenty-First Annual Kelser Charity Challenge
NEWINGTON, CT - Thanks to beautiful October weather, a sold-out field, generous golfers, charitable sponsors, and fantastic volunteers, we had another amazing event for golf and fundraising.
We’re very proud to have raised $17,500 for Hospital for Special Care Center for Memory Disorders.
From the press release:
The golf tournament held last fall at Indian Hill Country Club in Newington, fundraised for a new center for memory disorders at the New Britain-based Hospital. Donations continued to come in over the months following the tournament, so the funds were finally totaled and delivered this month.
“With Kelser Corporation’s support and generosity, we will be able to make significant strides in advancing the development of the Center for Memory Disorders,” said Lynn Ricci, FACHE. “Our team of neuropsychologists is developing a comprehensive protocol that incorporates the most effective evaluation and treatment techniques and will help to enhance community resources for patients with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other neurocognitive disorders.”
The Center for Memory Disorders will provide neuropsychological evaluations to offer differential diagnosis of neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia and help individuals and families distinguish between these disorders and the normal aging process. The center will expand resources to provide treatment for behavioral and cognitive difficulties, helping individuals and their families adjust after a diagnosis of dementia.

The 2018 Kelser Charity Challenge will take place on September 11th at Indian Hill and continue to support the Hospital for Special Care’s Center for Memory Disorders.
