New Community Corporation will hold its 25th Annual Golf Classic Monday, July 1 at Cedar Hill Golf and Country Club in Livingston, N.J. Proceeds from the event will benefit NCC’s youth and education programs; Harmony House, NCC’s transitional housing facility for homeless families; and the Monsignor William J. Linder Scholarship Fund.

“The annual NCC Golf Classic helps raise funds for our homeless families to provide the services they so desperately need. But in the process, we have a great time playing golf, eating, drinking and enjoying the great company,” said New Community CEO Richard Rohrman. “It is really a fun filled event that we look forward to each year. Come out and enjoy.”

Golf Co-Chair and NCC Board President Dr. A. Zachary Yamba emphasized the importance of the event for New Community and the children and families it serves.

“This year more than ever, in addition to supporting Harmony House and all the work that New Community does, we want to place an emphasis on more participants and more donations to support the Monsignor Linder Scholarship Fund to enable promising young people to obtain not just their high school diploma, but also go on to college,” he said.

Registration for the event will begin at 10:30 a.m. July 1 with a barbecue scheduled for 11 a.m. There will be a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. and after a full day of golfing, participants will enjoy an evening reception beginning at 5:30 p.m.

There will also be an opportunity to participate in a 50/50 drawing and a silent auction with RSINJ Inc.

Withum Smith+Brown is the major sponsor of this year’s event. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.

Event co-chairs are Dr. A. Zachary Yamba, NCC Board President and President Emeritus of Essex County College; Michael Pintabone, Partner at Withum Smith+Brown; and Bill Passarotti, Partner and Client Executive at Palmer & Cay.

The event committee includes Richard Rohrman, NCC CEO; Diane Johnson, NCC Board of Directors Member; Craig Drinkard, Deputy Director at Victoria Foundation; Jeremy Garlock of Schenck, Price, Smith & King; Zoraya E. Lee-Hamlin, President and CEO of RayZo Marketing; Antonio Lolo, Vice President of Ferry Carpet; and Wayne Gravesande, NCC Director of Environmental Services.
