BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Raise Your Glass Foundation, created by Bridgewater resident Adam Yenish and his wife, is holding its third annual Golf Classic at New Jersey National Golf Club in Basking Ridge on Monday, Sept. 12.

The foundation was created with local community members to give back to Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia for the work done for Yenish’s son, Anthony John.

Anthony John Yenish is a student at Van Holten Primary School. Born with a rare orthopedic condition, his hands and feet were severely contracted at birth, and his family made trips every week for six months to the hospital while doctors slowly cast his feet and molded his hands into the correct position.

Today, according to the Raise Your Glass website, Yenish is able to walk and move his hands fluidly.

Since the first event in January 2013, Adam Yenish said, they have donated more than $200,000 to the hospital, and are well on their way to a $250,000 goal.

At this point, there are 70 to 85 golfers registered, and registration fee includes a round of golf with a cart, breakfast, beer and soft drinks, dinner, two-hour open bar, contests and more.

All proceeds will benefit the hospital.
