Hanscom FCU Golf Tournament Raises $120,000 for Home Base Program


  The family of the late Alan Hart, Hanscom Federal Credit Union board director, was in attendance for the announcement of the Alan M. Hart Memorial Charity Golf Classic. 

Hanscom AFB, MA (September 26, 2017) – The Hanscom FCU Charitable Foundation held its third annual Golf Classic this week at Red Tail Golf Course in Devens, MA. The non-profit charity raised $120,000 to benefit the Red Sox Foundation and Mass General Hospital Home Base program. There were 138 golfers who enjoyed a morning on the course in summer-like heat and sunshine.

At a special presentation following play on the course, Hanscom FCU Chairman Paul Marotta announced a tribute to longtime board director and chairman of the Hanscom FCU Charitable Foundation Alan Hart, who passed away earlier this year. With Mr. Hart’s family in attendance, a portrait was unveiled as it was announced that the golf tournament will now be known as the Alan M. Hart Memorial Charity Golf Tournament.

“Al served on the Hanscom FCU board for 28 years, and he willingly and enthusiastically led the Hanscom FCU Charitable Foundation,” said Mr. Marotta. “This is a fitting tribute for Al. He loved golf and he loved helping people. He embraced the credit union philosophy of people helping people.

”The Home Base program is dedicated to healing the invisible wounds of war for service members, veterans and their families through clinical care, fitness and mind-body wellness programs.
