The Westfield Area YMCA is hosting the 15th Annual Golf Classic and Dinner with Live Auction on Monday, May 13, at Echo Lake Country Club in Westfield. Net proceeds support families and seniors in need of assistance to participate in Y programs and services.

At the Westfield Area Y, no one who lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside and is suffering a bona fide financial hardship is turned away for the inability to pay. In 2018, the Y provided $359,747 in financial assistance to 282 individuals, primarily for child care and summer camp services. 

Play golf?  Play format is a shamble. Prizes will be awarded for both team performance and individual games of skill by both men and women.  Lunch begins at 11 a.m., shotgun start is at 12:30 p.m.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

Don't play golf?  Come for part two of our day: Enjoy a cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 5:30 pm, followed by a buffet reception and a live auction facilitated by WCBS TV weathercaster John Elliott. If you have seen him in action, you know what a treat the auction is. 

Great silent and live auction items include weekend getaways, sporting event tickets and memorabilia, restaurant gift certificates, foursomes at select golf courses and many more.
