Teeing up for Leo

Posted

Teeing up for Leo The Comprehensive Community Action Program (CCAP) Chip for Charity golf tournament, renamed for the late Leo Beliveau this year, was held Wednesday at Harbor View, raising more than $70,000 for the agency. Leo, who died in April at the age of 81, was an avid fisherman and hockey player. His friend, also a fisherman and hockey player, Ted Wheeler, suggested Leo take up golf at the age of 70. He played daily at Harbor View, even scoring a hole in one – something Wheeler hasn’t done … yet. Leo’s sons Lee and Eddie and Neighborhood Health were major sponsors of the tournament that had 50 on the nine-hole course and more than 100 turn out for a post tournament reception and raffle. Leo owned and operated K&B Service in Providence, a business that his sons continue to run. Pausing during play, from left, are Lee Beliveau, Ken Howard and Ted Wheeler. (Warwick Beacon photo)
