We provide less fortunate children the opportunity for recreational and educational activities that they might not otherwise have
Little Falls, NJ (PRWEB) March 30, 2015
The Sixth Annual David Harris Golf Invitational which will benefit underprivileged kids in New Jersey is attracting celebrity participation and corporate sponsors.
Participants can expect to enjoy a great day of golf with David Harris of the NY Jets and other celebrity guests at a world class course, compete for tournament prizes, enjoy a fabulous cocktail party and dinner and feel good about the charity they are supporting.
Give the Kids Hope Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable organization, directly benefits underprivileged children in New Jersey. The foundation has set a goal in 2015 to help with needed renovations at Camp Hope in West Milford, NJ where over 2,700 underprivileged children from North Jersey attend at no cost every summer.
The foundation was started in 2009 by Stephen Tilton Jr. and Judith Schumacher-Tilton of Schumacher Chevrolet to provide less fortunate children the opportunity for recreational and educational activities that they might not otherwise have, including a chance to go to summer camp and sing by a campfire, take a nature walk or enjoy an educational trip to the zoo.
David Harris has become the face of Give the Kids Hope Foundation, inspiring many less fortunate youngsters with his enthusiastic participation and recalling that his own upbringing led him to join the group, saying with a smile "we grew up with so much love, we never knew we were poor."
This year’s benefit Golf Invitational which is named in his honor will support needed funds for renovations to the Camper’s Lounge at Camp Hope in Passaic County and will be used in part for summer programs for disadvantaged youth at Turtle Back Zoo in Essex County.
Give the Kids Hope Foundation President, Stephen Tilton Jr. commented “We are very thankful to our celebrity chairman David Harris of the New York JETS, for his continued involvement and enthusiastic support of the foundation and to Essex County Executive, Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr., and Passaic County Administrator, Anthony J. De Nova, III who have once again graciously volunteered to co-chair the event.”
Among the contests and prizes planned for the 2015 David Harris Invitational are a $10,000 (60’ putt) and hole in one prizes that include: a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette and a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS, sponsored by Schumacher Chevrolet of Little Falls, Clifton and Denville, NJ.
