Spots still available to play in Fifth Annual Race for Matt and Grace Golf Tournament

Charity event held in memory of late founder and Johnston native


There are still spots open in the Fifth Annual Race for Matt and Grace Golf Tournament , scheduled for Friday, Aug. 19, at the Connecticut National Golf Course.

The tournament will start at noon with registration and lunch, and a 1 p.m. shotgun.

Last year’s event raised approximately $16,000 (after expenses) for the fight against Friedreich’s ataxia (FA).

Men’s, women’s and co-ed divisions cost $140 per player.

Memorial Tee Signs cost $65, and Tee Sponsor signs cost $85. Your organization can become a Major Sponsor for $500. Visit to register for golf, become a sponsor, purchase tee signs or make a donation.

Email for more information or with questions.

All funds raised benefited the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) and the tournament will be held in honor of its late namesake, Johnston resident Matthew DiIorio, who died on July Fourth, 2021, after living with the disease since 1994.

More information on FA can be found at (checks to FARA may be mailed to 533 W. Uwchlan Ave., Downingtown, PA 19335; reference RFMG).
