For the past nine years, Bill’s Seafood has hosted a golf tournament to support scholar-athletes from the shoreline towns of Westbrook, Clinton, Old Saybrook and Valley Regional High School (Chester, Deep River and Essex). Over the past ten short years, this scholarship has awarded over $160,000 in scholarships.
Bill's Seafood Restaurant is a landmark on the Connecticut shoreline. Thousands of area residents and tourists visit annually to experience the shoreline setting to the “tune” of Westbrook’s “singing bridge”. Our local communities have long supported Bill’s. Our golf tournament is a small way for us, the owners and staff to show our overwhelming gratitude.
