UNION, NJ - The community partners of Community Access Unlimited (CAU), including local business and other supporters, helped the agency raise more than $57,000 at its 22nd Annual Golf Classic, held at Suburban Golf Club in Union. The money will help support CAU's wide array of programs supporting people with disabilities and at-risk youth.

"This is a day when people who care about this organization come together to show their support," said Harold Poltrock, owner of the law firm Harold J. Poltrock, P.C. and president of CAU's board of trustees. "Community Access Unlimited could not fulfill our mission without our community partners and this is a way for us to thank them."
