HOLMDEL – Hope For Children Foundation of New Jersey (HFCF) announced today that its 3rd Annual Rolling Greens Golf Outing and Wine Tasting Event netted more than $65,000. HFCF will use the funds to continue its mission of making a difference in the lives of Monmouth County area children.
Despite less than ideal conditions, the turnout for HFCF’s latest fundraiser was outstanding, with golfers and wine connoisseurs alike enjoying first class golf, wine and food in the all-day event, held on October 9th at Trump National Golf Club in Colts Neck.
“Our all-volunteer organization has yet again staged an incredible charity event,” said Eric Hinds, President of Hope for Children Foundation. “We are humbled by the generosity and hard work of our sponsors, supporters and volunteers and I am very proud of what we have been able to accomplish together.”
This year’s golf outing honoree was Scott McGinn, 34, of Madison Square Garden. As Director of Luxury Suites at the world’s most famous arena, McGinn has been in position to help raise tens of thousands of dollars by donating sports and entertainment gifts to be auctioned off by HFCF at its events. McGinn, who has been instrumental in helping to make the previous two HFCF golf outings resoundingly successful, was the natural choice to be honored at this year’s event.
A portion of the proceeds from the Rolling Greens 3rd Annual Golf outing and Wine Tasting Event will de donated to the family of Brandon Kucowski, a 10-year old boy who was born with Schizenchephaly, a disorder that prevents him from walking or performing any self-help skills on his own. These funds will enable Brandon’s family to purchase a Quadriciser Motorized Therapy System, which will have a significant impact on Brandon’s overall health.
“I want to thank everyone involved with Hope For Children Foundation for helping to purchase a Quadriciser for my son Brandon,” Ted Kucowski said to the crowd at the outing. “This machine will provide independent movement for Brandon’s limbs and provide him much-needed physical therapy. Insurance companies have said that this machine is not necessary, but we feel it is for Brandon’s quality of life and we are grateful to Hope for Children Foundation for making it happen.”
