The Candlewood Valley CC Chapter of Stand Up & Play in New Milford, CT will host a Tournament and Buffet starting at 8:30 AM Friday October 14, 2016. The Entry Fee is $125 per Golfer with proceeds going to the Stand Up and Play Foundation.
Candlewood Valley Country Club is proud of being one of only two facilities in Connecticut who provide access to an onsite Paramobile Golf Cart for free. We are an active supporter of the Stand Up and Play Foundation and we are committed to helping the physically challenged share in the joy of golf.
Local nonprofit Stand Up and Play Foundation has received a $220,000 donation from Stars for Heroes, a national organization that raises money from restaurant chains and donates to nonprofits that benefit veterans. Stand Up and Play is dedicated to helping wheelchair users and other individuals, particularly veterans, stand up and participate in sporting and daily events via the ParaGolfer, which allows them to be lifted into a standing position with a full range of motion for swinging a golf club.
Stand and Play is a ramped track for Little People wheelie vehicles. It becomes like a racetrack as you drop vehicles from the top and they speed down the spiral ramps. Lights and sounds abound in the play center. A mechanic's lift is ready to take a car in and up for pretend work. Double A (AA) batteries are required, so like many other toys, it is a good idea to be fully stocked ahead of time.
