EAST ORANGE, NJ - East Orange residents are invited to register for the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges’ 23rd annual golf tournament on Monday, Sept. 18. Proceeds from the event at the picturesque Montclair Golf Club go to the financial assistance fund for the East Orange YMCA and the Metro Y’s five other branches.

The cost for individual golfers is $525 and $2,100 for a foursome, and includes the full day of golf and all evening activities. 

“The money we raise will provide children and families in need access to programs that foster wellness and community involvement,” said Metro YMCA Chief Development Officer Lisa Kelly. Since 1994, the tournament has raised more than $1.5 million.

Golfers will enjoy a delicious brunch before the 11 a.m. shotgun start. The event includes refreshments throughout the day, afternoon cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, dinner, a live auction and a 50/50 raffle.

The Metro Y will also announce the winner of the 2017 The Kenneth A. DeGhetto Champion’s Cup. The award recognizes a spirit of generosity, sportsmanship and an unwavering support of the Metro YMCA and it mission to strengthen community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. 

Non-golfing participants can register online for the evening festivities, at a cost of $125. The event will be held at the Montclair Golf Club, 25 Prospect Ave. in West Orange. Local businesses are encouraged to show their support of the Y through the purchase of tee signs for $300. Tickets for the 50/50 raffle are $50, and only 300 tickets will be sold, so the winner could win up to $7,500 (if all the tickets are sold). Raffle tickets and tee signs can be purchased at the East Orange YMCA. To register for golf and sponsorships, go to http://www.metroymcas.org/main/golf-tournament/.
