On Monday, May 20, 2013, 100 golfers came together for the 14th Annual Children's Aid Society Golf Classic which was held at the renowned Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey. Baltusrol is the site of 14 Children's Aid Classics, 15 USGA national championships, seven U.S. Opens and a PGA Championship. In 2016, the PGA Championship will return for a second time.
The day kicked off with brunch, followed by 18 holes on the championship lower course, and ended with a cocktail reception, awards ceremony and a spirited auction. The event raised over $180,000 in support of programs and scholarships for smart, hard-working and youth who, through no fault of their own, face precarious situations that hinder their chances of higher education and the ability to move on to a productive, financially-stable adulthood. Since 2000, the Children’s Aid Golf Classic has raised over $3.35 million.
Special Guests speakers included Howard Cross, SVP, Cresa, Co-host, YES Network’s This Week in Football, Sideline analyst for the New York Giants’ radio network, and member of the Super Bowl XXV Champion New York Giants; and Elvis Santana, a graduate of the Children’s Aid Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School community school and our Corporate Workplace Program and now a junior in Organizational Psychology at Albertus Magnus College.
