2019 Walk to Cure Arthritis Raises Thousands

This weekend’s annual Walk to Cure Arthritis was a huge success thank to those who donated and spent their time fundraising - while the final numbers are still being tallied, the event was without a doubt a success. Friend, families, and coworkers came from all over the Greater Danbury area to support their loved ones living with Arthritis, and the weather proved to be the nicest weekend in recent months.

The purpose of the Walk to Cure Arthritis is to pursue a cure for America’s #1 cause of disability; one in every four Americans has arthritis, and two-thirds of those affected are under age 65, including 300,000 children. By raising money to find a cure, the Rizzo Companies, working with The Arthritis Foundation, makes more headway through scientific discoveries that bring us closer to a cure.

Rizzo Golf Tournament a Record Breaking Success – Raising over $100,000 for The Arthritis Foundation!

The 8th Annual Rizzo Invitational Golf Tournament was off to a rough start, with rain forcing us to move from our annual date of the First Monday in August.

However, August the 14th turned out to be a huge success! With over 150 golfers on the Ridgewood Country Club green enjoying the many amenities unique to the Rizzo Tournament, we were able to hit and surpass our goal of $100,000, grossing over $158,000, and netting just over $108,000!

All proceeds from our tournament are donated directly  to The Arthritis Foundation. The Rizzo Family has a personal goal of helping to eradicate the affliction of Arthritis for the over 50 million Americans that suffer with this debilitating disease every day.

The Rizzo Team would like to thank all of you that helped us make the 8th Annual Rizzo Invitational Golf Tournament such a huge success!

Thank you our volunteers from Immaculate High School and Kohl’s, along with the Rizzo Family – we couldn’t have done it without you!
