Weichert, Realtors golf outing to benefit breast cancer research
Weichert, Realtors will host its 13th Annual Charity Golf Outing on Thursday, Aug. 15, at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, N.J., to raise funds for the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research.
“Beginning with our first annual golf event in 2000, we have remained true to our mission of honoring and supporting breast cancer victims and survivors, including those from within the Weichert family. In the process, we have raised nearly $600,000 for breast cancer research,” said Jacelyn Botti, head of residential sales for Weichert.
“This year’s fundraiser promises to be better than ever with the addition of two new non-golfer options that will help us take the event to an entirely new level. We look forward to joining with our Weichert colleagues and business partners to once again show our support for the American Cancer Society.”
Individuals and businesses are invited to participate in the fundraiser. Team awards will be given out for first and second place, and there will be contests for both men and women for Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin and Closest to the Line.
In addition, Hole-in-One prizes include 2013 luxury automobiles, and there will also be a raffle featuring the grand prize of an LCD television.
A donation of $399 provides individuals a round of golf with cart, lunch, photo, commemorative pin and post-tournament three-hour buffet cocktail reception. For a donation of $175, an individual may attend the buffet cocktail reception and awards banquet.
A new addition to the fundraiser this year allows participants to choose among two non-golfer options for the same $399 donation. The first is a three-hour spa treatment that includes a one-hour Swedish massage, one-hour facial, manicure, pedicure, lunch and buffet cocktail reception. There is also a non-golfer clinic that includes three hours of instruction, club rentals, use of the practice facilities, lunch and the buffet cocktail reception.
A range of six sponsorship levels ensures an affordable sponsorship option for businesses — both large and small.
Contributions of gifts and prizes are also welcome from businesses as donations. To register for the Weichert Golf Outing, please contact Laura Metro at 973-397-8505 by July 31 as space is limited.
