The 21st annual Fore Love Open Golf event is a BIG success!
June 9 - BEDMINSTER - Despite dark clouds and a morning drizzle, the skies cleared as 140 golfers who lend their support to the Resource Center of Somerset began to arrive around 11am. Everyone enjoyed a great day of golf at Trump National Golf Club - Bedminster.
The event helps support the programs and services offered free-of-charge by the Resource Center to people affected by domestic abuse in Somerset County. "Fore Love is one of our premier fund raising events of the year," remarked Veronica Finlay, Development Coordinator for the Resource Center of Somerset and this year's Fore Love program organizer. "We are grateful for the heartfelt generosity of the men and women who join us this year, they are helping to keep the goal of empowerment and a better lifestyle a priority for victims of domestic abuse."
This year, the Resource Center acknowledged the ongoing contributions of three longtime corporate supporters. Each recipient was presented with a specially designed Fore Love golf pin flag in a presentation display case. PVH Corporation was recognized for 21 years of supporting the Resource Center and the Fore Love Open. Also recognized were ABM Janitorial Services and ICC - Industrial Cooling Corporation for their consistent support that began over 10 years ago.
Every golfer coming in from the course had a look of satisfaction and a story or two about "conquering" the challenges of Trump National - Bedminster. Our players were treated to the trademark ambiance of the Trump clubhouse; delicious food, refreshing beverages and an opportunity to network with old and new friends alike. With the resounding positive feedback we received there's no doubt most of our guests will want to return again next year, and we will certainly welcome them with as much enthusiasm and gratitude as we have for 21 years.
Our thanks to our sponsors and to everyone who participated in the raffle, 50/50 drawing, live auction and of course a fantastic round of golf on one of New Jersey's finest golf courses.
