ECHN To Hold Its Mason & Purcell Golf Classic Tournament At Tumble Brook

Jun 30, 2011 -  MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT – Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN) will hold its first combined Mason & Purcell Golf Classic on Monday, July 25, 2011, at the Tumble Brook Country Club in Bloomfield, Conn. In addition to golf, other activities of the day include a cocktail reception, dinner, silent and live auctions, and a grand prize drawing. To sponsor or participate in this event, please go to or call Richard Silvia at 860.872.5305.

The Jack Mason Memorial Golf Tournament and the Daniel Paul Purcell, MD Memorial Golf Classic have been held annually since the early 1980s. These events have attracted strong support from local businesses and community representatives. The new combined tournament will offer an even greater opportunity for community involvement.

At a meeting between the Mason and Purcell families and the principals of ECHN and the ECHN Foundation, it was determined that combining the Jack Mason Memorial Golf Tournament and the Daniel Paul Purcell, MD Memorial Golf Classic into one tournament was the most effective use of our resources and would bring the most benefit to both hospitals. Combining efforts and operating as one golf tournament would considerably reduce expenses, illustrate the unification of the ECHN organization, and celebrate the historical merging of two established families in the eastern Connecticut community. Proceeds will be distributed equally to Manchester Memorial and Rockville General Hospitals.

ECHN holds many annual events throughout the year and partners with corporations for maximum marketing opportunities. For information on how to be a part of future ECHN Community Healthcare Foundation events, please call Richard Silvia at 860.872.5305.
