The Pizzuti Open

The Pizzuti Open was started in 1992 by Greg Pizzuti as a golf outing for family and friends. A few years into the informal tournament, the group decided to make it a charity fundraiser and raise money for the American Cancer Society. As the tournament grew, Greg Pizzuti called on the Junior League of Rhode Island, Inc. to assist with the operations. Held each summer at the Pawtucket Country Club, the annual event continues to raise funds for both the American Cancer Society and the JLRI.

The Junior League of Rhode Island, Inc. is currently working to assist these young adults get a fair shot at starting an independent life. Members have collected furniture, tableware, towels, linens, and other household goods to assist with the set-up of their first apartments; collect and donate business attire for their first interviews; and assist with resume writing.
