The Boys & Girls Club Golf Classic, which has run 43 consecutive years since 1972, is dedicated to John “Red” Larsen.

Red participated in almost every tournament and was Chairman for more than half. It was common to see Red stuffing “tee-favor bags” on Sunday night or putting out sponsor signs in the morning mist. His love for children and his dedication to our Boys & Girls Club were rivaled only by his love for his family and the game of golf.

The Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley has been changing the lives of young people in our area for 60 years. Earlier this month our Youth of the Year, Brooke Grand, earned the title of Northeast Region Youth of the Year. Brooke will go to Washington, DC, in September to compete for the title of National Youth of the Year.
