The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly holds its 19th annual Play Fore! the Kids — Golf, Tennis, and Games outing at the Alpine Golf Club, on Monday, August 5. Reservations for foursomes, games, or the evening festivities are at jccotp.org/playforethekids.
The day’s offerings include men’s and women’s tennis, a women’s 9-hole game, and a full 18-hole package with greens fees, cart, caddy, on-course refreshments, and lunch. There also is mahjong, bridge, or canasta; participants can play with friends or as a single participant. It also includes brunch. The festivities continue into the evening, with a strolling cocktail dinner reception (dietary laws observed) and online and live auctions with exclusive sporting event packages and one-of-a-kind dream destinations.
“The goal of the day is to share in some light-hearted fun with friends and family while connecting people to a core mission of the JCC, which is to do our part to ensure that all children with special needs have access to important life experiences that not only bring them new skills, but make them feel included as valuable members of our community,” the JCC’s CEO, Jordan Shenker, said. “Our annual golf and games event helps us to succeed in this effort, as we continue to draw new participants and reach new goals each year.”
A wide range of sponsorship opportunities are available. Presenting sponsors include the Hechler family and the Kurtz and Spadaccini families. Event chairs include Daniel Cohn, Cory Hechler, and Tracy Reichel; auction co-chairs are Jacqueline Pollack and Lindsay Till; and Stephanie Cohn, Jenna Gutmann, and Jillian Somberg are the games and tennis co-chairs. Committee members include Becky Canarick, Lindsay Fries, Daryn Katz, Gabrielle Marcus, Jonathan Marks, Jennifer Peykar, Eva Rubach, JoJo Rubach, Bari Shore, and Lindsay Skulnik.
