READINGTON, NJ - The Hunterdon County YMCA will host the 16th Annual Golf Classic at Stanton Ridge Golf and Country Club on Monday, June 18. The Golf Classic provides an opportunity to give back, while having a great day.

Last year’s Golf Classic was attended by almost 100 golfers, and featured the event’s first-ever hole-in-one winner, Bob Gill, who took home a 2017 GLC300W4 from Flemington Mercedes.

The event begins at 10 a.m.with registration, and a shotgun start at noon. The scramble event will include 18 holes of golf, golfer giveaways, lunch and a buffet dinner. Prizes will be awarded in several categories with special prizes for on-course challenges including longest drive and closest to the pin. Two hole-in-one opportunities are available.

While the Golf Classic has become an annual event, the work that it supports is far from ordinary. All proceeds from the event benefit the YMCA financial assistance program, a confidential program making Y programs and services available to all Hunterdon County community members regardless of their ability to pay.

The Golf Classic is one of the Y’s most important fundraising events. With the help of fundraisers such as the Golf Classic, in the past two years alone the YMCA has provided nearly $1 million in financial assistance to members of the Hunterdon community. This has allowed more than 3,100 people to benefit from Y programs and services such as swim lessons and child care. 

With requests for financial assistance growing each year, the YMCA remains committed to meeting the needs of the community. Through the financial assistance program, scholarships are awarded for childcare, swim lessons, summer camp, youth programs, and fitness center memberships. The Y also offers programs which are open to the community at no cost, such as LIVESTRONG at the Y for cancer survivors, Special Olympics Swim Team, the Active Older Adult Center, the Produce Distribution Program, and the Second Grade Learn to Swim Program.

Registration for individual golfers is $250, and a variety of sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information on supporting the Golf Classic through sponsorship or joining the Y on the golf course, contact Christine Coffey at ccoffey@hcymca.org or 908-483-4326, or visit the Y online at www.hcymca.org

The Hunterdon County YMCA is a non-proft, charitable organization. With the assistance of the community, the Y is able to remain true to its mission: To help all people grow in spirit, mind and body.

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project. Initially the project was to find someone to ...

The headline “School security at issue: Flemington-Raritan board member accused of leaking secrets” is less than a half-truth, given the ensuing revelation.
