The annual Jack Rua Invitational was held on August 6, 2018 at the Crest Wood Country Club in Rehoboth, MA. This year's event was one of the most successful, with over 40 golfers playing in the tournament!
The event is held in honor of Jack Rua, one of the founding partners of the Rua-Dumont-Audet Insurance Agencies. For many years Jack served as president of the Diabetes Association, Inc. (DAI), and the commitment and devotion he had to the program continues to be an inspiration. Proceeds from the event benefit both the DIA and the Jack Rua Camp for Children with Diabetes. Camp Jack offers a fun and welcoming environment for youth with diabetes, their siblings, and friends to benefit from hands-on learning experiences in Type 1 diabetes management, all while enjoying the fun of summer camp activities. We thank everyone who has generously donated to the Jack Rua Invitational and the amazing programs it helps support.
