For many years, the Sunrise Optimists have held a golf outing to support Camp Quality New Jersey and The Sunrise Optimist Foundation of Freehold, NJ. This year’s outing will take place on Tuesday July 22, 2014.

Camp Quality is itself, a “child” of the Sunrise Optimist Club of Freehold whose members were instrumental in the foundation of the camp eight years ago. The camp invites child cancer victims whose short lives have been devastated by this uncompromising disease to a week-long camping experience every summer and holds other activities for the campers throughout the year. All members of the camp staff are volunteers and each child attending the camp has a young adult companion to insure the camper’s safety and well-being. The camp experience is designed to help youthful cancer victims (ages 5 through 17) spend a week among other cancer victims is in setting designed to help all of them feel like normal, healthy kids.

Three years ago the Freehold Sunrise Optimist Club formed The Sunrise Optimist Foundation of Freehold, NJ. The foundation raises funds through the efforts of the Freehold Sunrise Optimist Club members to help local organizations and charities in need as well as provide scholarships and leadership programs to local youth organizations. Club members will be volunteering their time to organize and run the tournament.

We appreciate the community’s generosity in support of our previous outings and again ask for your help. We need prizes for golfers and gifts to be auctioned off at the luncheon that will follow the golf tournament. Sponsorship opportunities include: hole-sponsors, mini-event sponsors (closest to the pin, hole-in-one, putting green contest, longest drive, etc.). All gifts will be fully and gratefully acknowledged both at the tournament and by a letter from the Sunrise Optimist Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization.

Donations can be made by mail to the Sunrise Optimist Foundation, C/O Crystal, Dworkin & Suskind, 101 Barkalow Avenue, Freehold NJ 07728 or by contacting Jane Bentley at (732) 431-2498.

Thank you in advance for your generosity,

The SOFNJ Golf Committee
