Longtime Event Golfer Bags Hole-in-One

The unthinkable happened in Waveny’s 13th year of “Swinging for Seniors,” when longtime event golfer, John Polera, bagged a hole-in-one with his 6 iron on the 7th hole at the Country Club of New Canaan to take home the 2015 Corvette Stingray prize, sponsored by Karl Chevrolet.

The celebrated annual Golf & Tennis fundraising event funds Waveny’s financial assistance program, which supports residents and patients who cannot afford the full cost of their care within Waveny’s continuum of care, including Waveny Care Center, The Village, The Inn, and Waveny’s Adult Day Program.

Polera has played in “Swinging for Seniors” for many years as part of First County Bank’s golf foursome. “Beyond how simply amazing this is,” said Joanne Boyer, Director of Development for Waveny LifeCare Network and event coordinator, “It’s particularly rewarding that all this excitement surrounds our longtime supporting sponsors, Karl Chevrolet and First County Bank, who have both played a huge role in our event’s success over the past 13 years.”
