The Senior Citizens Activities Network (scannj.org) a non-profit 501©3 organization dedicated to serving people 55 and older in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, raised over $50,000 at their first annual Golf Classic.
The event was held on Monday July 18th at the fabulous Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale, NJ. Eighty-four golfers enjoyed a gourmet BBQ lunch before playing in the afternoon shotgun scramble format, traversing the only Jack Nicholas designed golf course in New Jersey. During the round, golfers participated in the $5,000 putting contest, the Pebble Beach Hole-in-Two challenge and the Million Dollar Shoot Out, while enjoying complimentary cocktails from the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Tent and hand rolled cigars from Señor Juan’s Cigars, of Belmar, NJ.
Following golf was an open bar cocktail reception, dinner and a charity auction featuring many unique offerings such as Golf experience vacations, premium liquor, sports tickets and memorabilia. The evening reception was attended by over one-hundred and twenty guests including golfers, SCAN corporate sponsors and staff, volunteers and local dignitaries.
