The Arc of Atlantic County has announced the 9th Annual I. Rice & Company Golfing for Good Tournament will be held on Thursday, September 14th at the Linwood Country Club. Registration begins at 7:30 AM followed by a 9:00 AM shotgun start.
Proceeds from Golfing for Good will directly benefit The Arc of Atlantic County's program which provides services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in our community.
The event started when golfing buddies and Downbeach residents, Steve Kuhl, Joe DiMedio, and Irv Singer decided to tap into their resources to make a meaningful difference in the community, by enlisting the support and assistance of many long-time friends and local businesses for a day of golf.
The cost is $175 per person and includes golf play and awards luncheon. A limited number of spaces are available. Register online at thearcatlantic.org or call The Arc of Atlantic County at (609) 485-0800 Ext 141.
The tournament prizes include:
· Top Three Foursome Finishers
· Longest Drive (Men’s / Women’s)
· Closest to the Pin on 4 Par 3s
· Two hole-in-one chances sponsored by Boardwalk Honda and Lilliston Ford
· 50/50 and Raffle Drawings for over $11,000 in prizes
· Putting Contest & “Dunk It In the Dinghy”
· Live Auction opportunities to include: Philadelphia Eagles Tickets, Golf Foursomes, Casino Overnight Stays/Dinners, and more
“Without the generosity of Steve Kuhl and Joe DiMedio of I. Rice and Company, who together with Irv Singer put together this marvelous event each year for The Arc, we would not be able to offer the services and programs this event supports,” said Scott Hennis, CEO of The Arc of Atlantic County.
“Besides being a major fundraiser for our organization, it was important to Steve, and Joe that this event is inclusive where golfers with and without disabilities play together in a fun and competitive environment. Their commitment to the mission of The Arc and the people we serve is why this event has been so successful.” Hennis added.
In addition to the Golf Tournament, The Arc will hold the RemArcable Raffle Drawing, with four great prizes up for grabs.
RemArcable Raffle Tickets are $100 each, and only 400 tickets will be sold. The drawing will take place September 14, 2017, at 2:00 pm during the I. Rice & Co. Golfing for Good Tournament awards ceremony. You need not be present to win.
