Preschool Advantage was honored to be the beneficiary of the 7th Annual Charitable Massey Quick Simon Golf Outing.

The proceeds from the day of golf will fund preschool tuitions for three- and four-year-olds in our community.  Preschool Advantage is a non-profit organization that partners with 20 preschools in Morris and Somerset counties to provide funding for students whose families cannot afford to provide their children with an early education.

“Preschool Advantage is proud of its partnership with Massey Quick Simon, an organization that truly understands the importance and value of giving back to their community”, said Molly Dunn, Executive Director of Preschool Advantage.

Massey Quick Simon hosted the event at the Somerset Hills Country Club. The weather was glorious, and 23 foursomes of Massey Quick Simon business partners, clients and friends of the firm enjoyed a wonderful day of golf. At the evening award's dinner, Preschool Advantage was thrilled to be presented with a check for the proceeds of the event, $70,900, which will provide funding for 15 students to attend preschool.

Thank you to the Massey Quick Simon foundation and all the golfers who made the day a great success.

There are thousands of working families in New Jersey who cannot afford to provide their children with an early education. While there are federally funded programs to cover the cost of preschool for families living below the poverty line, working families making over that level have limited options. The high cost of living in Morris and Somerset Counties leaves many families unable to afford a quality early education for their children.

Preschool Advantage is committed to addressing this need, one child at a time and relies completely on private funding.
