17th Annual Golf Outing helps Warren County families struggling to afford the basics
WASHINGTON, N.J. – On Monday, May 5, area residents can enjoy playing a round of golf at an 18-hole course while helping United Way of Northern New Jersey address the needs of ALICE families in Warren County.
The 17th annual United Way Golf Outing in Warren County will be held at the Hawk Pointe Golf Club, 4 Clubhouse Drive in Washington. The day begins with registration at 7:30 a.m., follows with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. and includes a Cinco de Mayo inspired breakfast and lunch. Hole-in-one prizes include a 2014 Chevy Impala, a set of Calloway irons, roundtrip domestic airfare for two and a Sharp LCD flat screen television.
The proceeds of the event will support United Way’s work in Warren County. According to United Way research, one-quarter of Warren County’s population is ALICE, which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. These are individuals and families who are living above the poverty line, but who cannot afford life’s basic necessities, such as housing, food, child care, health care and transportation.
In Warren County, United Way is supporting ALICE families through two scholarship programs. One supports ALICE women seeking career advancing training. The other helps make child care more accessible for ALICE families by providing scholarships to local child care centers.
“Through this golf outing we have an opportunity to give ALICE families tools that will not only improve their lives, but will also strengthen our community for the long term,” said Sarah Brelvi, chief professional officer for United Way of Northern New Jersey.
This event is made possible due to the generous support of Gold sponsors: Atlantic States Cast Iron Pipe Company, Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney, PC, Fulton Bank of New Jersey, Ground Water Treatment & Technology, LLC and Huntington Mortgage Group.
