ELIZABETH, NJ – Golfers can enjoy a day of their favorite sport and maybe win a year of free pizza from Santillo's Brick Oven Pizza, named the best pizzeria in New Jersey, at the Elizabeth Avenue Partnership's 5th Annual Golf Outing, Thursday, May 4, at Galloping Hill Golf Course in Kenilworth.

 In order to win, all golfers would have to do is sink a hole in one from 167 yards away on hole #15 at Galloping Hill, according to Dave Strochak, executive director of the EAP.

“If a golfer sinks the elusive Hole in One, they would win a free pizza for one year with a limit of one per week for 52 weeks at Santillo's, a 3rd generation restaurant doing business in Elizabeth since 1918,” he said. “That's 99 years of serving delicious pizza!
