25th Annual 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.

Thank you to all our sponsors, players and volunteers who helped us make the final year of this event so successful!

Kids in the Kitchen

The Junior Leagues’ Kids in the Kitchen program was launched in 2006, childhood obesity was just starting to ramp up as a major concern among public policymakers. Now, with more than 200 individual Junior Leagues sponsoring Kids in the Kitchen programs in their own communities, the issue of childhood obesity has been brought to the forefront, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is pleased to report a 43 % drop in the obesity rate among 2- to 5-year-old children over the past decade. The Junior League of Rhode Island hosts a local Kids in the Kitchen event each year.

Foster Care

When a young adult in the foster care system graduates from high school or turns 18 years of age, they become part of a population that has “aged out.” These youth are now left to fend to themselves with little or no support. 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.
