2018 Annual Appeal

The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association provides significant and critical financial support to allow local families’ children to participate in athletic programs.  Many of the families, organizations, and teams we support cannot afford the rising costs of athletic equipment, uniforms, team registrations, and travel. Our organization is a 501c3 founded by Joe and Jim Branca in 1960 with the primary mission to encourage youth activities and sports for girls and boys to allow them to learn and experience unity, fellowship, and good sportsmanship. See the list below of the local
groups we have donated to in the past 10 years alone.

Along with the promotion and support of youth sports programs, a centerpiece of The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association’s mission is our College Scholarship Program. We have awarded college scholarships to 110 worthy young male and female student-athletes since our inception. Also, at our Annual Awards Dinner, we have honored 243 local members of our community for their achievements and contributions to youth sports in Greenwich as well as 155 national sports luminaries. 

The Old Timers mission has been built upon and accomplished only through the time, effort and dedication of many individuals who have served on its Board of Directors and the generosity of time and funds that come from its supporters throughout the community. This year we added three new Board Directors – Alessandra Messineo Long, Esq., Katie DeLuca and Peter Carlson.  

Please consider making a donation to our Annual Appeal. On behalf of the Board of The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association, thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

“Help Us Support Youth Sports”

The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association provides significant and critical financial support to allow local families’ children to participate in athletic programs. Many of the families that we support cannot afford the rising costs of athletic equipment, uniforms and team registrations. Our annual charity golf tournament is a major fundraising event that allows us to meet our goals and support youth sports in our community.

The Old Timers Athletic Association of Greenwich was founded in 1960 by Joe and Jim Branca to encourage youth activities and sports, unite and continue the fellowship, good sportsmanship, and honor worthy old time athletes and others who were associated with sports in our community. Along
with the promotion and support of youth sports programs, the centerpiece of the Branca Brothers’ vision was the college scholarship program.  The Old Timers have awarded college scholarships to 96 worthy young student-athletes from its inception through 2016.

The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association has established a longstanding tradition of volunteering and giving back to the community. In summary, we have exceeded $1,400,000 in total contributions in support of youth athletic programs and student athletes.  At our Annual Awards Dinner, we have honored 235 local members of our community for their achievements and 151 national sports luminaries.
