For 35 years, supporters have played in the annual Daughters of Miriam Center Golf Classic to raise money for the long-term care and rehabilitation facility. This year brought a new focus on raising money for Alzheimer’s and dementia care at DOMC/ Gallen Institute in Clifton. In addition, the August 31 event was at a new venue, the newly renovated Essex County Country Club.
In addition to a “million dollar shootout” sponsored by the Lewis Family Trust, prizes for four par-three holes, bulls-eye contest, and holes-in-one included cars, vacations, jewelry, and cash. Route 23 Auto Mall of Butler, Frank’s Truck Center of Lyndhurst, Fette Ford of Clifton, and Yanina & Co. of Cedar Grove donated hole-in-one prizes. Participants received a variety of gifts when they registered. The day included brunch, a cocktail hour on the new patio, and dinner. In addition, there were silent and live auctions
The event was staffed by many volunteers and overseen by chairs Karen Altman, Leslie Levine, and Gail Yamner.
