WESTFIELD, NJ – “When in crisis, I think we walk a fine line. We try to stay in balance. As we balance our finances, so we also try to balance our sorrows with our joys; our desires with our obligations.” – Paul Jackson (1961 – 2009).

The Paul Jackson Fund “Hope Classic” Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, Oct. 9, at Stanton Ridge Golf & Country Club in Whitehouse Station, NJ.

The Paul Jackson Fund offers support directly to individuals and families in dire financial situations due to disability or long-term illness.

“The charity began 25 years ago to assist Paul Jackson after the removal of a spinal cord tumor left him paralyzed. Once his health stabilized, Paul served as the president of the fund until 2009 when his tumor returned,” PJF Director of Development Mary Doherty said. “We are asking people to play in Paul’s memory and for his mission of easing burdens in times of medical crisis.”

Interested parties can play in the tournament, sponsor a hole, or make a donation.

One of the event's sponsors, Westfield State Farm Insurance Agent Christine Cosenza, shared her feelings on the event.

"Paul Jackson was a courageous, kind and generous man. The Paul Jackson Fund provides a valuable service to families in need,” she said. “I’m always happy to support their wonderful efforts.”

Registration for the tournament begins at 10:30 a.m. Lunch at 11 p.m. will be followed by a noon shotgun start on the course. Awards will follow cocktails and a 6 p.m. dinner. Cost for the event is $250 per player with proceeds benefiting The Paul Jackson Fund’s continued charitable efforts.
