Date: Monday, June 7th, 2010 Monday, June 7th, 2010 proved to be the perfect day for the 18th annual Golf Outing of the Tri-County Scholarship Fund. Held at the historic Morris County Golf Club, the fifth oldest in the country, twenty-four foursomes played the challenging course. Golfers had the chance to swing their way to an Audi, a BMW or a Ford, donated respectively by Audi of Bernardsville, Open Road BMW of Morristown and Wayne Ford.
Participants also had the opportunity to bid on an array of terrific golf packages as well as a host of vacation destinations, including Ireland and the Bahamas. One highlight of the event was the wine cork auction, at which guests paid $35.00 for a numbered cork. Over dinner, as they picked up their bottles, everyone collected a bottle worth at least $35.00, while some went home with bottles worth hundreds of dollars.
Best of all, the outing once again provided scholarships for the many children from economically challenged families in grades K-12 that Tri-County is able to help send to safe, nurturing, high-performing private and parochial schools in Morris, Passaic and Sussex counties. The facts speak for themselves: 99% of the children who are helped by Tri-County graduate from high school and virtually all of them go on to college; many, the first in their families to do so.
