WESTFIELD, NJ - An informal barbecue and lots of raffles and prizes topped off a day of golf at the Mayor’s 15th Annual Golf Outing, held at Echo Lake Country Club on Monday.  Clark Mayor Sal Bonaccorso pulled the names of the prize winners and kibitzed with the more than 120 people who attended the dinner. 

Threatening weather that had been predicted for the day failed to materialize and 86 Clark residents, business owners, government officials and friends had played golf during the day under sunny skies.

“It’s a real Clark day,” Bonaccorso said. “I’ve seen some of the same faces for 15 years and I see some new faces.  It’s a chance to play at a top-rated country club.”

Money raised during the day, on participation fees and on the baskets and raffles, is used to fund free community events sponsored through the recreation department.  Breakfast with Santa, the annual Christmas tree lighting, the Easter Egg Hunt and the Fourth of July fireworks are just a few of the township events that are underwritten by the outing’s proceeds, Bonaccorso said.

“We really depend on donations and the generosity of businesses and individuals,” he said.
