2015 Tee It Up for Charity Silent Auction Preview

May 28, 2015

Each year the silent auction at Tee it Up for Charity at the Travelers Championship gets bigger and better, and this year is no exception! The list below is a preview - we will add items as they are received but it may not list every single item we have.

Tee it Up for Charity is HYPE's annual signature event, held on the Thursday of the Travelers Championship. Every single dollar raised goes to charity, and this year's recipients are Junior Achievement of Southwest New England, The First Tee of Connecticut and Journey Home!  Admission fees from all attendees, donations collected through the silent auction, and registration from the 3-hole golf tournament will be combined and contributed to our beneficiaries. In 2014 this event raised $15,616!

Join us on Thursday, June 25th for a night of fun, music, food, and drinks. Registration is now open and it is $40 for members and $45 for non-members. Those who don't pre-register on our website will be charged $50 at the door.
