FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO PROUD PRESENTING SPONSOR OF TAME THE TIGERS GOLF TOURNAMENT ON MAY 12 IN SUPPORT OF THE JIMMY FUND
02.27.2014

Foxwoods Resort Casino is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 7th Annual Tame the Tigers golf tournament scheduled for May 12, 2014 at The International Golf Club and Resort in Bolton, Mass. This unique tournament helps to fund important patient activities for the children undergoing treatment at Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic.

“At Foxwoods, it is important for us to give back. We do it in countless ways throughout the year,” said Foxwoods President and CEO, Scott Butera. “But for many of us, as parents, the opportunity to support the Jimmy Fund and this program is extremely meaningful.

“We are incredibly proud to work with Tame the Tigers, New England PGA, The International, and partners like WEEI,” added Butera. “We are grateful to John Dennis for introducing us to this incredible meaningful opportunity.”

Tame the Tigers is a unique Pro-Am event that allows players to tackle North America’s longest course- 8,325 yards from the “Tiger Tees” on The Pines Course at The International Golf Club and Resort.  Each foursome will be paired with a New England PGA Professional in a step-back bramble format.

The sponsorship of Tame the Tigers is only one of the many philanthropic efforts of Foxwoods Resort Casino and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.  As a stronger community partner, over the last 22 years, more than $85 million has been donated in cash, services and material goods to hundreds of non-profit organizations.  Foxwoods continues to be among the largest supporters of the United Way of Southeastern CT and Special Olympics Connecticut.

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribe’s annual charitable giving campaigns and sponsorships, which are leveraged through all of its business enterprises, provide community assistance in the spirit of strengthening the lives of others in need while embracing opportunities for humanitarian outreach and support.
