The 2016 Richard Hale YMCA Memorial Golf Classic to be held June 7

The YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy will host the annual Richard Hale YMCA Memorial Golf Classic on Tuesday, June 7 to raise money for the YMCA’s “Send a Kid to Camp” program.

The event will be held at the Metuchen Golf and Country Club, 244 Plainfield Road, Edison, NJ, 08820. It will include lunch at 11:15, prior to our 12:30 shot gun start, an 18-hole shamble, course refreshments, a cocktail hour/dinner, and an awards ceremony. Check in begins at 10:30 AM.

Organized by YMCA volunteers, the Golf Classic celebrates the legacy of Richard “Dick” Hale who was a pillar of the YMCA’s Camp Scholarship Fund. As a charitable organization, the YMCA is committed to serving all people; including those working families who cannot afford the full cost of summer camp. “The Golf Classic has become a fun and important annual event to support YMCA camps,” YMCA Board President, Bruce Peragallo, said. “Thanks to the generosity of the many people who make it successful, we are able to make a significant difference in the summers of many children. Every child deserves to have the fun, friendship and memories which a summer camp experience offers.

The Richard Hale Memorial YMCA Golf Classic event sponsor is JFK Health. Other sponsors include: Halecon, Jersey Realty Group, The Ayotte Family, Reydel Volkswagen, Costello-Runyon Funeral Home, Metuchen Savings Bank, Provident Bank, LaPorta Builders, Investors Bank, Edison Technologies, Son-Rise Document Solutions, and What’s the Scoop. Sponsorships, with recognition opportunities, are still available.

Last year’s tournament raised more than $22,000 for the “YMCA Send A Kid to Camp Program”. Supporting this cause is a great investment in our communities future.
