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!
