UNION – Kean University is taking to the fairways in an effort to overcome some of the challenges brought forth by the statewide higher education budget.
The Eleventh Annual Kean University Golf Classic will tee-off Monday, Sept. 20, at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster. All proceeds from this major fundraiser will go toward supporting the campus community in areas ranging from academic programs and infrastructure to student scholarships.
South Amboy resident Robert Busch, member of the 2010 Golf Committee as well as the Foundation Board and President/CEO of ALL-STATE Legal, believes this tournament and similar fundraising initiatives hosted by the University are excellent ways to supplement a portion of the budget deficit.
“I have been affiliated with this Golf Outing for nearly a decade, and each year it has experienced greater success while becoming increasingly important to the University,” said Busch. “As a corporate executive, I can tell you that events such as this one are remarkable business opportunities for many of the participants, and in fact they become a valuable means of networking with associates and colleagues beyond the confines of an office. Of course, most importantly, the students of Kean University are the primary recipients of this type of philanthropy.”
The Golf Classic will begin with registration and lunch at 11 a.m. This will be followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Following the tournament, there will be a cocktail reception and dinner. The day will be filled with an abundance of spectacular surprises and giveaways.
The prestigious Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club sits upon 1,000 acres of spectacular countryside. It offers three breathtaking courses, each with its own unique challenges and a stately manor house for its guests.
