The 4th Annual JFS vs JCC Golf Tournament, a joint fundraising event between Jewish Family Service and the Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center raised more than $45,000 to benefit both agencies. On Thursday, May 11th at Linwood Country Club, 90 golfers teed off in a rematch for the trophy. The reigning champions JFS were able to hold onto the title and claimed the trophy for the third time, which will be displayed at the agency’s Margate office until next year’s rematch.

“Being the first tournament of the season, we are happy with the turnout and glad that everyone had a great time. We raised much needed dollars for essential community services,” said Dan Koch, Team JCC co-chair.

In addition to friendly competition, the JFS vs JCC Golf Tournament featured many exciting on-course contests such as putting, inside the circle, hit the boat, chip off the back deck and hole in one featuring a 2017 C300 from Mercedes-Benz of Atlantic City.  Many holes also featured fun activities including liquor tastings, cigar rolling and more. Golfers walked away with great prizes such as foursomes to area golf courses, haircare baskets, salon gift certificates, restaurant gift cards and wine. One lucky winner claimed the “Dine Around for a Year” raffle grand prize which included gift certificates to 12 local restaurants. Other attendees won prizes such as Phillies tickets, hotel stays, car details, concert tickets, and more. Attendees enjoyed a Cocktail Dinner reception featuring a wine tasting and craft beer tasting. 

“This golf outing offers a friendly competition between agencies, adding a level of excitement that differentiates us from other tournaments,” said Darren Matik, Team JFS Co-Chair. “Despite it being a chilly day, with the support of dozens of sponsors and supporters, we were once again able to offer participants fun contests, exciting on-course activities and exemplary prizes making for an all-around great day of golf.”
