The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore raised more than $82,000 at its Annual Golf Classic on June 9 at the Manasquan River Golf Club in Brielle, N.J. While the weather conditions caused some minor interruptions, rain could not keep the participants from enjoying a day on the links with friends and colleagues, while supporting an incredible cause. The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore impact more than 11,000 girls in Monmouth and Ocean counties, helping them grow into strong, confident young women.
Generous contributions from this event allows girls in the community to participate in Girl Scout programs, trips, and activities. More importantly, with the support of sponsors, girls facing financial barriers are able to participate in an array of Girl Scouts programming, including robotics, archery, environmental awareness activities and more.
“We had a wonderful turnout at our golf classic this year, despite the rainy weather,” said Susan H. McClure, chief executive officer, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. “Even through the intermittent storms, our golfers were resilient, very much in keeping with the Girl Scout mentality. We’re thankful to our generous sponsors, along with everyone in attendance, for giving our local Girl Scouts the tools they need to become our leaders of tomorrow.”
