Metro Y to hold 23rd annual golf tournament Sept. 18

WEST ORANGE, NJ — Area residents are invited to register for the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges’ 23rd annual golf tournament on Monday, Sept. 18. Proceeds from the event at the picturesque Montclair Golf Club go to the financial assistance fund for the Metro Y’s six branches. Since 1994, the tournament has raised more than $1.5 million.

“The money we raise will provide children and families in need access to programs that foster wellness and community involvement,” Metro YMCA Chief Development Officer Lisa Kelly said in a press release.

Golfers will enjoy a delicious brunch before the 11 a.m. shotgun start. The event includes refreshments throughout the day, afternoon cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, dinner, a live auction and a 50/50 raffle.

The Metro Y will also announce the winner of the 2017 The Kenneth A. DeGhetto Champion’s Cup. The award recognizes a spirit of generosity, sportsmanship and an unwavering support of the Metro YMCA and it mission to strengthen community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
