Hingham Sports Partnership (HSP) and Special Needs Athletic Partnership (SNAP) teamed up for the Tom Hoffman HSP Golf Tournament to raise funds to continue to support quality youth and high school sports programs for kids of all abilities in Hingham.
This year marked the 11th anniversary of the golf tournament named in honor of former HSP president Tom Hoffman. It is HSP’s largest fundraiser of the year, allowing the organization to continue to fund vital sports programs and projects.
“We’re so grateful to everyone who supported this year’s event. We hope they all had a terrific time on the course. Funds raised through this and other HSP events will allow us to continue our mission to support sports programs and larger capital projects for athletics, such as our current fundraising effort to create ‘The Dock,’ a new fitness facility at Hingham High School,” said HSP president Deb McCarthy.
The Dock project would transform the old high school concession building near the turf field into a state-of-the-art fitness facility that will be accessible to all high school students.

At the post-golf gathering, MA Senator Patrick O’Connor announced $10,000 in funding to Hingham Sports Partnership. During a recent Senate Budget debate, the Massachusetts Senate approved an amendment offered by Senator O’Connor to provide funding to HSP.
Guests also had the opportunity to bid on many exciting silent auction items. HSP would like to thank the families, organizations, and businesses for donating tickets, items, lessons, classes and experiences for the silent auction including: Cosman, Flynn and Merrill families; Krigsman Yoga; New England Patriots; New England Revolution; NoBull; Harbormen Hockey; Harborwomen Hockey; and South Shore Country Club/Mike Libby.
Additional gratitude goes to Burke Distributing, Vitamin Sea Brewing, Left Hand Brewing, Jack’s Drive 55, and Doublemint Home for generously donating great raffle items. Thank you to HSP sponsor Elliott Physical Therapy, for donating the air cannon. Foursomes paid for their chance to see how far they could shoot the cannon, which helped raise additional funds at the tournament.
The foursome with the lowest score was recognized with the Alma Wahlberg Award. The award honors the late Mrs. Wahlberg for her commitment to the community. The foursome included Alexi Evriviades, TJ Mahony, Chris Tolford, Dave Gammell.
