I played my first game of golf this summer. It was a world class putt putt course right outside the glorious Bushkills Falls. I swung through miniature German castles, smashed a couple balls through a narrow cardboard bridge that was trying to convey a Frank Lloyd Wright sensibility and came in third, right after my husband and 9 year old son. “Not bad,” I thought, I still came in under par.
However, the Red Cross takes golf seriously and held its annual golf classic at the top-ranked, utterly beautiful Plainfield Country Club, located in Edison. George Ziminski of TriState Capital Bank co-chaired the event along with fellow Red Cross board member Mike Kollar. He said it was pure pleasure to play on a course as prestigious and challenging as this one where the pros play and what made the day even more incredible was raising funds for an organization that makes a difference in the lives of so many people.
Many New Jersey companies supported the event and sent us foursomes. A silent auction raised vital funds for our mission after, making this a very successful day. Thanks everyone!
