MILLBURN, NJ — Girls on the Run New Jersey East has announced its secnd annual “Girls at the Green” Golf Event & Dinner Invitational to be held on Thursday, May 10 at Cedar Hill Golf and Country Club in Livingston, presented by Frontline Insurance. Nancy King, of the Nancy and Willis King Foundation, will be honored for her dedication to the community and her commitment to Girls on the Run.
Girls on the Run is a non-profit, youth development program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident. Proceeds from Girls at the Green will help Girls on the Run to strengthen its programs and expand its reach in local underserved communities by providing additional scholarship funding, allowing more girls to participate.
The event has a secondary purpose: to encourage women to use golf as a form of exercise and a networking tool.
Chris Schiffer, who helped originate Girls at the Green and is Executive Vice President and COO at AEPG Wealth Strategies said, “Girls on the Run is a great organization that inspires girls to recognize their power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making. My daughter participated and I believe it has helped make her a confident young woman. Empowering women to take up golf is an extension of that mission.”
Florham Park resident Meghan Stein, who participated in Girls on the Run and is now serving as a junior coach at the Florham Park Girls on the Run site, will be sharing about the impact of Girls on the Run during the dinner program.
Both men and women are invited to participate on the green and in supporting an important cause: empowering girls. Whether a golf pro or new to the game, there is something to be enjoyed. Dinner only tickets are also available. Learn more and register at https://www.girlsontherunnj.org/Girls-at-the-Green.
