September 11, 2012
On Monday, September 10th, 95 New Jersey Apartment Association (NJAA) members attended the NJAA Charitable Fund’s annual golf tournament at Fiddlers Elbow Country Club in Bedminster to raise funds for Charitable Fund programs and events which were created to give back to communities across New Jersey.
Proceeds from the tournament enable the NJAA Charitable Fund to provide its annual scholarship program, which has awarded nearly $40K to 28 individuals since 2002, and its annual children’s holiday party, which has provided fun, food and holiday gifts to more than 15,000 children since 1998. Members of the NJAA Charitable Fund Fundraising Committee additionally raised over $1,250 in donations for the fund during the outing.
“The golf tournament gives our members an opportunity to interact with their peers outside the office for a day, and helps the NJAA Charitable Fund raise money to give back to neighborhoods and communities throughout New Jersey,” said Jeff Smith, president of the NJAA’s Charitable Fund. “We are always in awe of the generosity of our members when we ask them to participate in our charitable fund events.”
