Dick Migli in 1970

AVON – The Avon High Booster Club will be hosting the 24th annual Richard Migli benefit golf tournament on Monday, May 15, at the Golf Club of Avon. All proceeds from the event directly benefit Avon student athletes by funding purchases of equipment, resources and two Dick Migli scholarships.

Sports fans from the community are invited to join the fun as a golfer (nine or 18 holes) and/or as a donor. Lunch and dinner will be included. There will be a live auction for a handful of items and a silent auction, too. If you’re not interested in golf, you can come for dinner. Details, registration and donor forms can be found at

The deadline to sign up to golf and/or attend the dinner is Friday, May 5.

Migli, a talented Avon High athlete, died in 1993 after a courageous battle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS). A member of the class of 1970, Migli excelled in football, basketball and baseball, earning 12 varsity letters. He had a passion for athletics and good sportsmanship.

Since 2009, the Collinsville Press has been providing award-winning coverage of sports and news in the Farmington Valley and across Connecticut.
