Join us for the
2016 Tommy Bowden Memorial Golf Outing on September 23, 2016 as we celebrate Tommy's love of life - family - and friends - and commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11!

**HOLE IN ONE SHOPPING SPREE CONTEST SPONSORED BY WEST ESSEX JEWELERS!**


GOLF! PRIZES! OUR CLASSIC PUTTING CONTEST! KEG AT THE TURN! FUN FOR ALL!

The Outing includes a Continental breakfast, golfer gift bags, a shotgun start, and a 4-person bramble format at the beautiful Crystal Springs Golf Resort in Franklin, New Jersey. A local brewery will supply fine draft beer at the turn, and your cart will be outfitted with soft drinks, snacks, a fine cigar, and chits for drinks and snacks on the course. 

A delicious buffet luncheon with a beer/wine/soda bar follows a fun morning on the links. We have terrific golfer goodies tucked into our golfer gift bags (which include golf balls and other great give-aways for ALL golfers!), and don't forget our fabulous silent auction!

For those who do not golf, our luncheon is a wonderful time for all! Click here to register!
