Third Annual JCC Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament

Monday, June 10

The Simon Family JCC’s Presidents’ Cup Tournament, which will take place this year at Heron Ridge Golf Club in Virginia Beach, has existed since the 1980s, but was renamed the Presidents’ Cup two years ago to honor past JCC presidents.

The Golf Tournament raises funds to support JCC programs that help improve the lives of thousands of people in Tidewater. Programs it supports include the Kids Connection Before and After School Program, Beginnings Infant and Toddler Care Center, Camp JCC summer day camp, special needs day camp and teen programming, among others.

“For so many years, many dedicated lay leaders have worked hard at making the JCC Golf Tournament a premiere event here in Hampton Roads,” says golf committee member and supporter, Jason Hoffman, associate vice president of investments, The Alcaraz Mercadante West Investment Group. “Every year it gets tough with many worthwhile causes competing for our time and money during what I call ‘Tournament season.’” Those who have made early commitments as sponsors include Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, Lois and Barry Einhorn, VBS Financial Services, Traci Corcoran, Towne Bank, The OBMS Partners-Merrill Lynch, The Alcaraz Mercadante West Investment Group, Harbor Group, Summit Group of Virginia, Scott N. Alperin, P.C. and Samuel I. White, P.C.

“We need to continue to remind all of our great players and fantastic sponsors how vital their participation is in the tournament,” says Hoffman. “The JCC uses this tournament as its main fundraiser, and without the money raised, the JCC would have a harder time delivering both the quality programming and fantastic facility that we are fortunate to have here in this community.”

To register to play, visit Great golf, give-aways, raffle prizes and a reception are all part of the tournament. For more information, Contact Alex Pomerantz at 965-6136 or
