Members of the Connectikids Golf Committee present Commissioner Joette Katz with a $12,000 donation for the Department of Children and Families "Our Kids Fund." The fund is used by social workers to pay for items not ordinarily provided for children in state care, including things such as a prom dress or music lessons.
For the past 19 years, the Committee has raised money for the fund by holding the Connectikids Golf Classic in conjunction with the Newington Rotary Club. This year's donations came from individual and corporate sponsorships as well as a donation from the Mashuntucket Pequot Tribe and Troon Golf.
Appearing from left to right in the above photo, which was taken October 11, 2012, are Ted Mauro of the Newington Rotary, Ralph Zona, who is retired from the Department and now is the chairman of the committee, Commissioner Katz, and Michael Kapij, a Department Juvenile Parole Supervisor.
