SCOTCH PLAINS – Nearly 100 individuals and representatives of businesses throughout Union County recently hit the golf links at Shackamaxon Golf & Country Club in Scotch Plains to support United Way of Greater Union County’s work in making a difference in people’s lives and addressing critical community needs.
“This event’s continued success demonstrates again and again that Union County’s residents and businesses care for their neighbors and the community,” stated James W. Horne, Jr., CEO of United Way of Greater Union County. “Their generosity and leadership enable organizations like ours to continue our work.”
