Bleeding Blue for Good empowers the next generation of UConn student-athletes and provides an avenue for impactful NIL (name, image and likeness) opportunities by helping UConn student-athletes use their influence to assist other non-profit organizations and serve as role models.

“We know how much affinity there is for the Huskies in this area. This event supports the student athletes as directly as possible while bringing together fans and UConn legends in Greenwich,” said John Malfettone, president and co-founder of Bleeding Blue For Good.

Registration and warm-ups begin at 10:00 am on July 22, followed by lunch and a 1:00 pm shotgun start. Non-golfers are welcome to join for the cocktail and dinner reception following play where auction items will include priceless UConn basketball experiences such as the opportunity to travel with the back-to-back National Championship Huskies for a road game. Limited sponsorships, foursomes and reception tickets remain. Visit www.bleedingblueforgood.org/events/legendsgolf for more information.

Bleeding Blue for Good champions charitable organizations through the utilization of the name, image, and likeness of UConn student-athletes. The organization unites Husky Nation under the common purpose of supporting athletes by providing income earning opportunities that assist charitable causes, including interactions with youths from low-income families in the state of Connecticut for whom the student athletes may serve as role models.
