Our primary mission at the Jamaican American Connection, a New Haven, Connecticut-based nonprofit organization, is to advance, encourage and foster the cultural, educational, and economic wellbeing of the Jamaican and Caribbean/West Indian communities in the Greater New Haven area. With that mission in mind, we’re proud to help provide an avenue for Shamar Wilson to achieve his dream.

We’re asking for your help for Shamar, a native of Runaway Bay, Jamaica, to achieve his dream of graduating from Albertus Magnus College and continue his journey to represent his country as a golfer. Despite his great success in school and in his sport, Shamar is an international student who is not eligible for financial aid and does not have access to student loans which means he does not have access to the financial means to cover college costs like tuition, meals, boarding and fees.

Shamar Wilson is a gifted sophomore. He’s pursuing a degree in business marketing, maintaining a 3.28 grade point average (GPA) while also being an active member of the Albertus Magnus golf team. He’s a 6’5” tall, naturally gifted golfer who has been playing for approximately 5 years. In that short time, he’s honed his skills in the Hoerman Cup in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean Golf Championship, and the Jamaican Open.

Build your foursome (or we can help you build one) and join him at this tournament to experience his talent as a naturally gifted golfer. Additional tournament guests include Andre Lacey, PGA professional/coach and grandson of legendary PGA pro Jim Dent.

Event starts at 12pm with shotgun tee off at 2:00pm sharp.

See you on the course.
