About The Susie Open

Susie is hitting the links! Back for its second year, The Susie Open will be hosted at the gorgeous and prestigious Gillette Ridge Golf Club in Bloomfield, Connecticut on Friday, September 20th.

Standing as a tribute to the great traditions and challenges of golf, Gillette Ridge is undoubtedly one of Palmer Course Design Company’s best creations. Those that join us for the inaugural tournament will be awed by the course's natural beauty and dynamic layout, while enjoying a tournament experience that they'll want to repeat time and again.

And for non-golfers, Gillette Ridge's recently renovated restaurant and open air patio is the perfect place to kickback and enjoy a memorable dining and event experience.

And by joining our mission - either by playing 18, or joining us for the tournament reception - you'll be helping to bring awareness and raise funds to help The Susie Foundation provide reliable and on-going support services to persons, families, and caregivers living with ALS across southern New England!

About The Susie Foundation
Who is The Susie Foundation?

The roots of The Susie Foundation can be traced back to November 7th 2009 – the day Susan Ready Matthews was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease). While struggling with the disease, Susan and her family took their first foray into fundraising, raising over $11,000 in 2010 in support of Susan’s Walk to Defeat ALS and The ALS Association of Connecticut. The outpouring of love and support during this fundraising effort helped to provide Susan with hope and optimism, furthering her resolve as she struggled with the worst ALS has to offer.

Following Susan’s passing on April 17th 2011, her family decided to continue this legacy of service, launching The Susie Foundation in 2013 with the hope of alleviating some of financial burdens levied on individuals and families following diagnosis. Since that time – and while being wholly volunteer led – The Susie Foundation has raised over $250,000 to support persons living with ALS across Southern New England

The Susie Foundation is working tirelessly to build on this legacy of service to ensure local persons living with ALS, as well as their families and caregivers, can access life-enhancing funding, services, and technologies to ensure they are able to continue to lead rich and meaningful lives.
