A maximum of 300 tickets are available.

The tournament and raffle drawing will take place at Harbor Pines Golf Club, 500 St. Andrews Drive, Egg Harbor Township. The tournament starts at 7:30 a.m. and the drawing will take place at 2 p.m. inside the Harbor Pines clubhouse. 

The RemArcAble Raffle was added to the Golfing for Good Tournament, now in its fifth year in 2011 to help boost proceeds from the event.

The tournament was founded by local golfers Irv Singer and Steve Kuhl, who wanted to make a difference through their favorite pastime. They selected The Arc as a beneficiary because of its comprehensive services that include a golf program for people with I/DD. Since its inception, the tournament and raffle have raised a combined total of nearly $150,000 to benefit The Arc’s recreation program.

Event chair and founder Irv Singer says, “We have raised nearly $150,000 since 2009 to benefit The Arc’s recreation program, which helps people make friends, learn skills, and build self esteem – all factors that improve someone’s quality of life tremendously.”

Steve Kuhl, president of Philadelphia-based I. Rice & Company, the event’s main sponsor, says, “The Arc is a great organization that really goes above and beyond to help people with developmental disabilities and their families. It is an honor to be a part of their efforts.”

Golfers and interested sponsors may sign up at www.arcatlantic.org. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start in a scramble format. The cost is $150 per golfer or $600 for a foursome. Tickets for the luncheon only are $30. Sponsorships are available starting at $100.

The Arc of Atlantic County is a private non-profit organization that has been making a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families since its founding in 1961. Through direct services, advocacy, education and prevention activities, The Arc works in partnership with individuals and their families to make choices possible about how and where they live, learn, work and play.
