Christian Health Care Center’s (CHCC) 30th Annual Golf Classic was held on Monday, June 10, at Knoll Country Club West in Parsippany. For the first time in the Golf Classic’s history, a golfer walked away with a new car after sinking a hole-in-one on the course.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better surprise than sinking my first ever hole-in-one at Christian Health Care Center’s Annual Golf Classic,” said Robert Milligan Jr., CFP, CINA, Managing Partner at 1792 Wealth Advisors and winner of the Nissan Rogue, which was donated by Ramsey Auto Group. “As a longtime CHCC supporter, winning the car on Golf Classic’s 30th anniversary was the perfect way to commemorate such a special event for an organization whose mission and vision I wholeheartedly admire.”
An enjoyable day of golf, yoga, dinner and fellowship, including a special video commemorating the event’s 30th year, was enjoyed by 132 golfers, 15 yogis, and 22 volunteers. The event raised $156,343 for CHCC’s Annual Fund, making it the most successful Golf Classic in the event’s history.
“We are so blessed to have such a wonderful community of Christian Health Care Center supporters and participants who came out to enjoy the Golf Classic despite the damp weather,” said Douglas A. Struyk, CPA, LNHA, President and CEO of CHCC. “Together with our sponsors, we were able to host a record-breaking outing in the 30-year history of the Golf Classic, which will truly benefit all those we serve at our Wyckoff and Wayne campuses.”
Unique to CHCC’s annual Golf Classic is yoga, and the health and wellness presentation. A customized two-hour yoga session was provided by Michele O’Shea, owner of O’Shea Yoga in Wyckoff, followed by a robust and interactive health and wellness presentation by Joan Katz, RD, LNHA, Chief Dietitian at CHCC.
The 30th Annual Golf Classic was organized with the support of volunteers from the Golf Classic Committee led by co-chairs Rick De Bel of Lincoln Park, CHCC Board of Trustees Chair, and Edward Nieuwenhuis, DPM, of Wyckoff. Committee members included Darcy Bickert of Midland Park; John Gunther of Glen Rock; William J.
