AIM Services, Inc., one of upstate New York's largest providers of support to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will hold its eighth annual Croquet on the Green Tournament and Garden Party Aug. 3 at Gavin Park in Wilton, New York. Croquet on the Green Tournament and Garden Party, an outdoor party and amateur croquet tournament with teams of two, is open to all ages, abilities, and skill. Returning this year, is the event's Honorary Chairman, retired Hall of Fame jockey, Ramon Dominguez.
“Among the people who receive services from AIM are those with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs),” said Dominguez. “As a jockey who had to retire early due to a head injury, I know that AIM gives people with TBIs a chance at living their most independent life possible.”
Nearly 54 million people annually experience a traumatic brain injury.
The annual Croquet on the Green event is officially sanctioned through the United States Croquet Association (USCA) and knowledgeable Croquet players will be on hand to guide the game. Croquet on the Green and Garden Party will feature complimentary beer and wine tastings from Specialty Wines & More, an individual picnic style boxed lunch from Deliciously Different Catering, on-site cigar rolling from Habana Premium Cigar Shoppe, beer, soda, and water from Saratoga Eagle, ice cream from Ben &Jerry's, live music, kids activities, special raffles throughout the event and opportunities to meeting members of AIM's community.
The event will be held rain or shine, and reserved seating under the tent will be available, as well as picnic style seating. All attendees will receive a signature picnic blanket to take home.
