NEPGA Professionals Give Back through Children’s Hospital Boston

- Boston, MA

Building off a visit to the Boston Children’s Hospital in 2017 by Bob Beach, Brian Bain & Ryan Kesten, the reinvigorated NEPGA Growth of the Game Committee in conjunction with the NEPGA Foundation made a visit to the Children’s Hospital to provide some fun for children and their families visiting the world-renowned facility in the heart of Boston.  Four members of the Committee were in attendance for the two-hour program; PJ Breton, PGA (Framingham CC), Jim Chojnowski, PGA (Framingham CC), Jeff Atkinson, PGA (Belmont CC) & Todd Lytle, PGA (Boothbay Harbor GC) traveled from near and far and volunteered their time to give lessons to more than 10 children and brought a much needed reprieve from the world of poking and prodding, replacing it with swinging and smiling. 

Patients and families from as close as Bridgewater an as far as Saudi Arabia came through for some instruction with SNAG equipment, and left with some tee gifts courtesy of our Foundation partners Avidia Bank.   The NEPGA is excited to make this a monthly program at the Boston location as well as satellite offices in Peabody & Waltham.  If you would like to get involved or learn more, reach out to Dave McAdams at
