OCBA 2nd Annual Marty Aronow Charity Golf Classic to Beneft CAREing For Children
Get your clubs ready! On Tuesday, May 5, the Ocean County Business Association will host its second annual Marty Aronow Charity Golf Classic to benefit CAREing for Children at the beautiful Pine Barrens Golf Club in Jackson, NJ.
Once again, the organization will look to raise funds for CAREing for Children (CFC), OCBA's adopted charity, which provides holiday cheer to area families in the form of food boxes, toys, clothes, and gifts.
The event's new name—the Marty Aronow Charity Golf Classic—honors OCBA past president Marty Aronow, who passed away last spring. He was hugely instrumental in helping to set up our inaugural outing last May—and it's a privilege to raise funds in his name for a charity he held so near and dear to his heart.
In its first go-around in 2014, the outing raised more than $10,000 for CFC and acted as a springboard to what was the most successful fundraising year in the charity's history. This year, the committee—once again chaired by OCBA member Robert C. Novy—is looking to surpass that amount.
"The outing provides a way for golfers of all skill levels to play a prestigious course at a very reasonable price," Novy says. "And we are able to build relationships within the organization." Adds committee member Bill DeBernardis, "There's a lot of camaraderie within the OCBA, a lot of people who go out of their way to support others in the organization. The outing is a great way to bring everyone together to continue to network with each other."
Once again, the event will feature prizes for the following: low score, longest drive, closest to the pin, a putting contest, and a beat-the-pro competition. There will also be the popular hole-in-one contest, with Down's Ford once again generously donating a car to anyone who sinks a hole-in-one on the 14th hole. There will also be a silent auction at the end of the day, where players can bid on golf foursomes and other great prize packages, including a weeklong summer stay in a Vermont vacation home.
