Hartford Hospital is grateful to our longtime philanthropic partner Advanced Performance Glass, which continues to support the hospital through its annual btr Golf Tournament. The 9th edition of the tournament—held on May 25, 2023, at Blackledge Country Club in Hebron—raised funds for Hartford Hospital’s Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation (CESI), as well as scholarships for local high school students.

Held in memory of Andrew Butterfield, the 2023 btr Golf Tournament raised $20,000 for CESI, a world-class medical training and education organization with a 20-year history of driving healthcare performance and improving patient safety. The proceeds will support training, education, and medical device development in the state-of-the-art CESI facility located on the Hartford Hospital campus. With this year’s donation, Advanced Performance Glass has now raised over $100,000 for Hartford Hospital through the annual btr Golf Tournament.
