CRT Hosts 11th Annual Tee-Off with Women Golf Classic on Wed., July 14 at Tunxis Country Club to Help Women Thrive

This Unique Women’s-only Golf Tournament Will Support CRT’s Women’s Empowerment Center in Hartford

Hartford – The Community Renewal Team’s (CRT) 11th Annual Tee Off with Women golf tournament, being held on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at the Tunxis Country Club in Farmington will once again benefit CRT’s Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Women’s Empowerment Center in Hartford, which offers women the opportunity to be supported and support themselves.

The goal of CRT’s Women’s Empowerment Center is to help women thrive.

As the designated community action agency for both Hartford and Middlesex Counties, CRT has been committed to serving the needs of individuals and families in local communities since 1963. As it happens, the majority of the people that CRT serves each year are female, and often they are the head of their household, too.

“This annual golf tournament is a big part of CRT’s summer-time calendar, and gives a big push to the work of our Women’s Empowerment Center, which is a much-needed safe haven and resource for women from the Greater Hartford area,” said Tenesha Grant, CRT’s Director of Women’s Services. “We are dedicated to bringing women and families out of poverty and into self-sufficiency. We want to empower women to lead sustainable, thriving lives.”

This unique, all-women’s golf event is being held to raise funds for CRT’s Women’s Empowerment Center in Hartford. The Center was opened in 2019 to help women focus on their own personal or professional goals, and it also serves as a support system for everyone who is involved with the Center. One-on-one case management sets the path for women to begin their journey, along with other tools for success such as workshops and mentoring are available and customized to the needs of each member.
