CALA’s 19th Annual Red Delicious Golf Tournament a Huge Success

On Wednesday, October 11th, 2023, the Connecticut Assisted Living Association (CALA) hosted its 19thAnnual Red Delicious Golf Tournament at the scenic Lyman Orchards, home to the prestigious Robert Trent Jones Signature Golf Course, in Middlefield, Connecticut. We’re delighted to announce that the event was a rousing success!

Residents and staff of numerous CALA communities were able to play with avid golfers and other industry professionals from across the state, all in support of CALA’s mission to promote excellence in senior living. Events were kicked off with a bang – literally! – as a starting shotgun signaled attendees to play different holes simultaneously to compete for various prizes, including this year’s “Hole in One” prize: a brand-new Mustang! It was a hard-fought tournament, but we’re happy to congratulate this year’s winners for their skill and dedication: the Sentic team! Afterward, attendees were treated to a variety of contests, drinks provided by Litchfield Distillery, a delicious post-tournament awards banquet and networking opportunities galore!

We’d like to thank everyone who came out and supported CALA with some good old-fashioned fun! We’d also like to thank Lyman Orchards, Litchfield Distillery and our 2023 committee members, volunteers and sponsors:
