3rd Annual Golf Outing
Raising Funds for a Cause
On September 11th, 2023, the Monmouth Park Charity Fund hosted their 3rd Annual Golf Invitational at the beautifully renovated Suneagles Golf Club. The event was not just a day of golf but also a celebration of community and charity, raising an impressive $130,000 to support local charities.
Honoring Heroes and Leaders
The morning began with a touching 9/11 memorial ceremony, featuring Dakota Diehl’s moving performance of the National Anthem and a moment of silence. The event also welcomed a team of military heroes, adding to the day’s significance.
A Day of Golf and Goodwill
Golfers enjoyed various course upgrades and amenities, including a Yard Bar and abundant refreshments courtesy of Shorepoint Distributing and Circus Foodtown. Exciting contests, such as the Hole-In-One Car sponsored by Larson Ford and the Ball Launcher game sponsored by Petrik, added to the day’s excitement.
Recognizing Commitment to Community
The day concluded with a delicious Lunch & Awards Reception, where Carol Stillwell, President and CEO of Stillwell-Hansen Inc., received the Ambassador of Goodwill award for her tireless dedication to supporting local charities. Bill Arnold, RWJ Barnabas Health Executive VP, President Southern Region, CEO of RWJ University Hospital, and Frank Vozos, past President & CEO of Monmouth Medical Southern Campus and Executive VP of RWJ Barnabas Health, were also honored for their exceptional leadership in healthcare and community health, respectively.
Supporting Local Causes
The event also featured a Silent and Live Auction, a cigar roller, and an Ice Cream Truck, adding to the festive atmosphere. The highlight of the day was the announcement of the 2023 Winners Circle Society Awardee, with a check for $21,750 presented to Tom Donovan, Executive Director of the Asbury Park Music Foundation.
Transforming Communities Through Collective Giving
The Winners Circle Society (WCS) selected APMF from sixteen applicant local charities to support their Music Saved My Life program expansion into Red Bank, in partnership with Red Bank Charter School and Red Bank Boys & Girls Club. The WCS continues to make a difference in Monmouth County by funding transformative initiatives that address the evolving needs of its residents.
