20th Annual Golf Invitational Recap
2012 Tri-County Scholarship Fund
20th Annual Golf Invitational
Monday, June 25, 2012
Morris County Golf Club, Morristown NJ
On Monday, June 25, Tri-County Scholarship Fund held its 20th annual golf outing at the Morris County Golf Club. The day was a great success, significantly surpassing the goal of raising $150,000 for the children of Morris, Passaic and Sussex counties who receive scholarships to attend private schools.
Originally slated for June 4th, the outing was postponed due to driving rain that had parts of the course underwater! The June 25 date had only one interruption when the alarms went off and the golfers had to come in for ½ hour. That break provided time for a cool drink and socializing on the verandah. Other than that, the weather was terrific.
The golf committee did a great job getting commitments in early for foursomes and this enabled them to concentrate on “new business” in the months leading up to the outing. Ultimately, the outing had the 28 foursomes that the committee was planning on and hoping for. One friend of Tri-County personally called five golf clubs and procured free foursomes for the silent auction.
Committee members and trustees asked their friends for help with the silent auction, and help came. Among the gifts was a BMW Mountain Bike, a trip for three in an airplane to see the local sights, a club membership to the posh Park Avenue Club, a foursome to the exclusive Trump National Golf Club and tickets to a New York Yankees game, to name a few.
Congratulations to the Golf Committee for another outstanding outing!
