The S3 Partners foursome of Pat Haskell, Charlie Flynn, Andrew Fentress and Matt Moran won the low gross in the inaugural “Hedge Against Cancer,” a golfing fundraiser at the Country Club of Fairfield that raised more than $200,000 to support the work of CancerCare of Connecticut and Yale University’s “Discovery to Cure” Foundation.

The tournament was established as a recreational outing that reflects an imperative by the money management community to provide vital resources to assist those whose lives have been affected by cancer.

Cindy Citrone of Southport, co-chair of the tournament with her husband Rob and Len Amato of Fairfield, said: the day provided “a great opportunity to give something back. We’ve had a great response and we expect the tournament to grow with the years.”

Amato was a member of the team that won the low net—with Brendan Walsh and Dirk Van Welie of Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic which donated a number of getaway prizes for the tournament’s auctions.

John McNear of Darien emerged with the longest drive award for the front nine, John Hampford of Milford, the back nine, and Mike Riccardi of Wyckoff, NJ, won the closest to the pin contest. McNear was also a member of the second low net winners—with Brian Foster of Westport, John Treadwell of Riverside and Bob Peterson.

Herb Williams, former New York Knicks coach, was among the celebrity guests.

Discovery Capital was the title sponsor and S3 Partners the cart sponsor. Among the list of other sponsors are some of the leading firms in the investment trade: Autonomy Capital Research, Fortress Management, Fox Point Capital Management, GE Money, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Shumway Capital Partners and Tudor Investment Corporation.

CancerCare of Connecticut provides no-cost professional-level services for those whose lives have been affected by cancer--counseling, group support, education and financial aid. More than 2,000individuals benefited from the assistance last year. Additional information about the work of CancerCare is available online at www.cancercare.org
