The Wesleyan Open Golf Association donated $1,500 to Even Start, a federally funded program that gives families access to the training and support they need to create a literate home environment and to enhance the academic achievement of their children.

About 50 Wesleyan employees, contractors, friends and families participated in the Wes Open Tournament, held July 13 at Banner Country Club in Moodus, Conn. All participants pay an entry fee which includes an 18-hole round, prizes and dinner. A portion of the fee is collected each year for a different charity in Middletown.

The funds will support Even Start’s Family Literacy Program, a program that provides support for local families. Even Start provides enriching child care while a parent attends classes at Middletown Adult Education to receive their GED or high school diploma. Even Start also provides programs for both parent and child to increase literacy and family support.
