The Hockomock Area YMCA held its annual Legends Golf Classic at Norton's TPC Boston, drawing the support of athletes from across the Boston sports landscape and from a variety of eras in the city's sporting history.

The event was held to benefit the YMCA's integration initiative, which integrates children with developmental disabilities into the Y's mainstream programs by aiming to improve social skills, build self-esteem, and increase physical activity and independence to enhance mutual respect and understanding among all YMCA members. Among those in attendance were current Patriots Zoltan Mesko and Nate Solder; former Pats Tedy Bruschi, Joe Andruzzi, Patrick Pass, and Pete Brock; former Boston Patriot Larry Eisenhower; former Red Sox Louis Tiant and Bill Lee; and former Boston Bruin Gord Kluzak.

Also in attendance was Ironman and Boston Marathon legend Dick Hoyt, who is to be honored at the 7th annual Legends Ball on Nov. 13. That event is another fundraiser to benefit the integration initiative for the Hockomock Area YMCA, which serves more than 33,000 members from 15 communities at branches in North Attleboro, Foxboro, Franklin, and Mansfield.
