Charlotte Hungerford Hospital invites you to join Honorary Golf Committee Chair, Bill Zampaglione, VP, Real Estate of PAC Group, on Monday, June 3, 2024, when the 22nd Annual Golf Classic returns to Torrington Country Club in Goshen, CT.

Charlotte Hungerford Hospital is grateful for the longtime support of PAC Group, which will once again generously serve as our 2024 Presenting Sponsor—the highest level of sponsorship. This year’s Golf Classic will benefit Food4Health—a new program launched to address food insecurity in northwest Connecticut by providing patients, caregivers, colleagues, and other community members access to healthy foods and professional nutritional guidance.

“PAC Group is proud to be a philanthropic supporter of Charlotte Hungerford Hospital and the Presenting Sponsor of this year’s Golf Classic,” shared Zampaglione. “As a Torrington-based company, we see the positive impact the hospital has on our region and the thousands of local lives that rely on their compassionate care.”

Zampaglione has a personal connection to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital. Having been born and raised in Torrington, he visited the hospital on several occasions for care—mostly for sports injuries from his youth—and grew up with many friends with parents who worked at the hospital. His three grandchildren were also born at the hospital and he serves as a Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Corporator.

“There was no hesitation on my family’s part for our grandchildren to be delivered and treated by local pediatricians at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital,” says Zampaglione. “Having lived and worked in this area my entire life, I’ve always had a keen awareness of the hospital, its ability to deliver quality care, and its importance to our community.

“Our company has been a sponsor of the Golf Classic for several years and it’s great to experience the spirit of the tournament. Everybody is out there on the same playing field and it doesn’t matter if you’re the police chief, a surgeon, a construction worker, or a retiree—everyone has a good time playing golf and enjoys the opportunity to share their support for Charlotte Hungerford Hospital.”

“We are so grateful for PAC Group’s continued support of Charlotte Hungerford Hospital and our Golf Classic,” said Debbie Bender, Director of Philanthropy, Charlotte Hungerford Hospital. “The proceeds from this year’s tournament will allow us to continue the great progress we have made with our Food4Health program, as we work to address the concerning rates of food insecurity in northwest Connecticut. We’re gearing up for what looks to be another successful tournament and celebration of Charlotte Hungerford Hospital—and we can’t wait to see everyone there!”
