Monday, June 5, Heron Ridge Golf Club
Early Bird Registration Deadline: April 30

Raising funds for children’s programming at the Simon Family JCC, as well as experiencing a fun, relaxing day of golf are two of the goals of the Simon Family JCC’s 7th Annual Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament. The third goal is to honor the commitment and dedication of those who have served as JCC president.

The tournament is open to all, regardless of skill level.

Through generous sponsors and players, the Golf Tournament raises funds to support Camp JCC, Kids Connection’s before and after school programs, infant and toddler care, teen programing, and a vital special needs summer day camp. Portions of these funds also provide camp scholarships opening the door for children who otherwise would not be able to afford Camp JCC’s enriching summer camp experience.

Gene Ross, president of Loan Care Servicing and a past JCC president said at a previous tournament, “With proceeds largely directed toward children’s programming, it’s easy to acknowledge the significance of this event.”

One of the beneficiaries is Yachad (Together in Hebrew), the new name for Camp JCC’s special needs shadow program. Shadows are trained counselors who follow campers throughout the day offering support if needed. Camp JCC provides shadow assistance to campers with a variety of physical, emotional, intellectual, and developmental needs. Unique to the area, this fully inclusive summer camp program enables children of all abilities to enjoy the activities Camp JCC offers.

Desiree, a mother of a six-year-old camper in the Camp JCC’s shadow program says, “They have been amazing! They make me feel safe to have her there. They know her name and watch her every moment. I had reached out to several day care centers that were not willing to include my daughter. We are very grateful for this program.”

The Simon Family JCC will have a full, exciting calendar year of children’s programming, as well as hundreds of happy campers, because of the tournament.
