we provide less fortunate children the opportunity for recreational and educational activities that they might not otherwise have
Little Falls, NJ (PRWEB) April 22, 2016
The Seventh Annual David Harris Golf Invitational which will benefit Give the Kids Hope Foundation and 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 and enjoy a fabulous cocktail party, dinner and evening Tricky Tray – all to support a great cause!
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 2016 to continue its support of providing 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 Auto Group 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 to rebuild the pavilion that provides shelter for the new spray park 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 2016 Chevrolet Corvette and a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, sponsored by Schumacher Chevrolet of Clifton, Little Falls and Denville, NJ.
