In a tragic accident on May 30, 2017, the Summit Police Department and the entire city of Summit lost a valued officer, community member and friend. This loss has greatly affected not only our law enforcement community and the citizens of Summit, but countless people far and wide. Matthew Tarentino epitomized what a law enforcement officer should be: a respected, trusted colleague with unwavering dedication and enthusiasm for his calling.

Officer Tarentino was the face of the department’s community policing unit and understood the importance of building relationships within Summit, most recently serving as Summit's DARE officer. During his time with the Summit Police Department, Matt created a lasting imprint on the department and the city as well as the children of Summit. While Officer Matthew Tarentino may be gone, he will never be forgotten.

A portion of the money raised by the Somerset Patriots Golf Classic will be donated to help Officer Tarentino's family - wife Victoria, their two sons, Robert (3) and Raymond (2) and a third child due in August- in their time of need and to ensure that his legacy lives on forever.

There are many ways to participate in the event, including golfing, sponsorship, donating raffle prizes, and much more.

Participation is limited. For more information, call 908-252-0700 or visit www.somersetpatriots.com/community/golfouting
