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!

The Annual Rizzo Companies Invitational Golf Tournament – August 7th at Ridgewood

Golf Season in Danbury is in full swing with courses opening up for 2017. The Rizzo Invitational is one of the most popular tournaments in the area. Set in beautiful Ridgewood Country Club in Danbury, the event is known for ensuring the guests have fun all day – from the lunch on the patio, to fun stations scattered about the green keeping golfers hydrated and fed throughout the day, to the different contests set up along the course, to raffles and silent cautions, and to the delicious dinner that caps off a wonderful day – everyone’s eager to grab a foursome!

Once again, Tito’s Handmade Vodka signed on as a sponsor – so we’ll have our famous Tito’s Tent and Tito’s Girls pouring drinks. Our perennial favorite, the Sausage & Peppers Stand, will be back – along with our newly debut in 2016 Philly Cheese Steak Stand.

Grab your sponsorship today – they’re selling out quickly. Pin flags and tee signs and other sponsorship opportunities are also available for those of you that do not golf.

To get more information and to sign up, please contact events manager, Vanessa Miyazato, at vmiyazato@rizzocompanies.com.
