JFS vs JCC Golf Tournament May 26th

Tournament to Feature Contests, Activities, Prizes & More!

(Margate, NJ – May 18, 2016) – Each year, the JFS vs JCC Golf Tournament combines competition with fun and the 2016 tournament will be no different, offering a great day of golf, contests, and prizes. More than 120 golfers are expected to gather at Linwood Country Club on May 26th for the third annual tournament. Typically a sold out event, the tournament features an activity or contest on almost every hole.  Once again this year JFS and JCC are proud to partner with charity minded “Philly Car Guy” Gary Barbera for the Hole-in-One grand prize of a 2016 Jeep Patriot 2-year lease. Both JFS and the JCC look forward to bringing the community together for a great fundraising event and hope to raise $60,000 to benefit both agencies’ programs and services.

Included with play are contests such as closest to the pin, hole in one, squiggle line and more. Golfers can also purchase a $100 package that includes novelty contests such as putting, hit the boat, inside the circle, chip off the deck and string, kick and throw as well as two mulligans and a raffle entry. Many holes will feature fun activities such as beer and liquor tastings and food samplings. Great prizes include hotel packages, restaurant dine-around, golf foursomes, fitness gift certificates, car detailing and more.

Registration and lunch will begin at 11:30 am with a shotgun start at 1 pm. Following golf, there will be a cocktail dinner reception featuring a craft beer tasting, novelty photo booth, chair massages, silent auction, hors d’oeuvres and a barbeque dinner. The individual play rate is $225. Due to the high demand, golfer spots are limited. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

The funds raised will help JFS and the Katz JCC further their mission to provide programs and services that enhance and enrich the lives of individuals and families in Atlantic County.

According to Chief Executive Officer Jack I. Fox, Herskowitz’s dedication to the betterment of the community and the individual people who make up the community will truly be missed.

The Susan Braunstein Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Cliff and Janine Haines of Ventnor.

According to Fox, the JCC has been very fortunate to have leaders who have had the vision to lay the foundation for the future.  None have had a greater impact than Susan Braunstein, who was President between the years of 1994 to 1996.

“Susan is a role model for all of us, but especially for the women who serve in leadership positions at the JCC.  In recognition of her leadership and service to the community, we have created the Susan Braunstein Volunteer of the Year Award recognizing annually one individual who brings to the JCC the same spirit that Susan has offered for well over a decade.”

Cliff and Janine Haines of Ventnor were presented with the Susan Braunstein Volunteer of the Year Award by Board Member Sam Wolf.

The Sadie Nauy Older Adult Service Award was granted to John Voigt of Margate.           “Every generation has a beloved leader who teaches people by example the meaning of leadership and T’zedukah.  In my career I have never met a leader who taught me more and touched my life than Sadie Nauy.  I only had the pleasure of meeting Sadie in the last six years of her 100 year life.  She was a powerful force even at 100 and helped me learn about community and leadership.  She was selfless and kind but always spoke her mind.  We all miss her so much and as a result we created this award in her name, “the Sadie Nauy Older Adult Service Award,” Fox said.

Voigt was recognized for his dedication and hardwork in teaching computer classes to seniors.

Staff recognitions included Raina Williams an Early Childhood Education Center teacher and Tom Henrich the graphic designer.
