Event Benefits United Way’s Work to Improve the Lives of Local Youth and Families
Despite being canceled due to inclement weather, United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties’ (UWMOC) Fall Tee-Off, scheduled for late October at Hollywood Golf Club in Deal, was the organization’s most successful golf outing to date. The event raised $112,000 to support UWMOC’s programs in the areas of education, financial stability, and heath – the building blocks for a good quality of life.
The fundraiser’s success was largely thanks to a shift to an online sales platform for the event’s silent auction items and multi-prize raffle tickets, which was open to the public and not just attendees. The golfers registered for the sold-out event won’t be missing out on their round – each foursome will receive a voucher to play at Hollywood Golf Club in 2021.
“It has been a very difficult year with a vast set of challenges, but we couldn’t be prouder of the result,” stated Brian Massey, co-chair of the annual Tee-Off committee. “We could not have exceeded our goals without the hard work and dedication of the annual Tee-Off committee and UWMOC staff.”
UWMOC thanks the event’s top sponsor Hackensack Meridian Health and all of the businesses and participants for their unwavering support. Proceeds from the 2020 Fall Tee-Off will benefit United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties’ work to help our community respond, recover, rebuild and reimagine for the long term.
“I am thrilled to have been a part of this event to benefit an organization that does such important work for the people of Monmouth and Ocean counties,” said Luke Bollerman of Bollerman Development, co-chair of the annual Tee-Off committee. “Our community needs our help now more than ever.”
UWMOC is scheduled to host its next annual Tee-Off on Monday, May 17, 2021 at Hollywood Golf Club. For more information on UWMOC’s work and how you can get involved, visit www.uwmoc.org.
