The Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center is holding its 13th Annual Golf Outing June 30 at the Raritan Valley Country Club, and Peapack-Gladstone Bank donated in support of it.

The golf outing was rescheduled from June 9.

The bank is a title sponsor of the outing for the second year in a row, and donated $10,000 to the center for the event. Proceeds will benefit the JCC Scholarship Fund, which provides assistance to those families and individuals with financial limitations, providing them membership to the programs at the center, including early education, child care, the Blaustein Early Childhood Center and JCC Camp Ruach.

In addition, according to a release, the money will help support services to seniors through the JCC’s hot lunch, exercise, entertainment and social programs.
