Local celebrities tee off in mini golf tournament


Several celebrities and local television and radio personalities participated in the Northstar Wealth Partners Celebrity Mini Golf Tournament at the Travelers Championship at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell Wednesday morning.

Actor Alec Baldwin hosted the tournament and also played with a camper from The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

The mini golf tournament, which consisted of threesomes, including our very own Eric Parker, Olessa Stepanova and Joe Zone, teed off in two waves.

The threesome along with other celebrities competed for the chance to win a total of $5,000 donated to the charity of their choice. Each shotgun allowed a chance for the teams to win $2,500 toward their charities.

"We're thrilled to host this charitable and fun event," said Travelers Championship Tournament director Nathan Grube. "Northstar Wealth Partners wanted to put on an event that's enjoyable, while also giving back to charity. This event certainly accomplishes both goals."
