SHELTON – Adam’s House, a newly opened grief education center, is holding its Healing Hearts Paddle Tournament on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 1:30 p.m. Finals and Semi-Finals, along with a celebratory dinner and drinks, are hosted at Aspetuck Valley Country Club, 67 Old Redding Road in Weston, CT. Competitive players on 16 Men’s and 16 Women’s teams will also play at the Wilton Y, Weston Field Club and Wilton Riding Club. The deadline to register to play is Nov 9.
"Adam's House has had very successful Paddle Tournaments for the past four years, but this year is the first time we've had separate Men's and Women's teams for competitive players," said Allison Wysota, Adam's House founder. "Our Paddle Tournaments always attract enthusiastic players and supporters who have a great time playing, plus enjoying dinner and drinks and the chance to win prizes."

Another raffle for the New York Giants vs. Detroit Lions game on Dec 18th at 1:00 p.m., will give the winner two Club Seats and special Club parking.
