The LNV Alumni Association golf tournament is held each year to support youth programs and provide equipment to our Boys & Girls Club.

With more than 3,000 Club members attending the Shelton and Ansonia clubhouses, the need for more programs, more program funding, and more equipment has become a focus of the Alumni Association.
Over the years our golf tournament has been able to purchase a portable street hockey rink, air hockey table, and foosball table for the games room; purchase 12 computer lab stations; sponsor the music program for children to learn how to play guitar, keyboard, and drums; sponsor the chess club, sponsor the Club members’ Award Dinner; and purchase ping pong tables, an indoor batting cage, outdoor basketball hoops, and a moon bounce.
