Above: A golf tournament this fall seeks to honor the memory of a former student athlete from Southborough, and help avoid early deaths like his.

The community is invited to remember a former resident next month by playing in the Chris Dibello #32 Foundation Golf Tournament. The Tournament will benefit the National Stroke Association and scholarships for local student athletes.

Southborough was Dibello’s hometown growing up. The former native passed away at the age of 49 last fall after a stroke. (Scroll down for more on his life and passing.)*

Friends and family members are now reaching out to invite our community to take part in the tournament honoring his too short life. Participation doesn’t have to include golf. You can also sign up to attend the dinner only or to sponsor an event or contribute an item to the silent auction and basket raffle.

The tournament takes place at Northborough’s Juniper Hill Golf Course on Friday, October 13th. Registration opens at 7:30 am with a 9:00 am Shotgun Start. The dinner is set for 2:00 pm.

Participants are asked to register by October 1st. (But space is limited – so you are encouraged to sign up soon.) For more details, visit the tournament website.

*The event website memorializes Dibello and explains the purpose of the tournament: 

Chris grew up in Southborough and graduated from Algonquin Regional High School in 1986. A standout student-athlete at Algonquin, Chris set many records on the football field while simultaneously setting examples of hard work and determination.

He graduated from Wagner College – where he also played football and was a part of a national championship team. After college, Chris started a family and career and settled in Bolton, where he and his family enjoyed many new friends and acquaintances. Tragically, Chris passed away unexpectedly in October of 2016 due to complications from a stroke. He left his wife, daughter, son, mother, father, sisters, brother, in-laws, and too many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and close friends and co-workers to count. On the anniversary of his passing, Chris’s family and friends would like to honor his life by inviting you to assemble in his name to raise money for very worthy causes including American Stroke Association, Camp Sunshine and his Memorial Scholorship Fund, Chris DiBello #32 Foundation.
