The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly will hold its 15th annual Play Fore! the Kids golf day at the Alpine Country Club in Demarest on Monday, August 3.

The fundraiser helps pay for JCC programming for more than 500 children with special needs that helps them learn life skills, attend summer camps, and take part in other educational and recreational programs that enhance their lives.

This year, the event will feature Play Games Fore! The Kids, where participants can play canasta, bridge, or mah jongg, or take mah jongg lessons.

Play Fore! the Kids has an afternoon shotgun, Million Dollar Shoot Out, hole-in-one competitions, prizes, awards, and a 50/50 raffle. The day also includes brunch, a cocktail and dinner reception, live, fisherman, and silent auctions, featuring hard-to-get items such as sporting events, special theater tickets, exclusive romantic getaways and more.

The Kurtz family is the presenting sponsor. Jeff Jagid, Eric Kleiner, and Jason Rubach are chairs; incoming chairs are Cory Hechler and Tracy Reichel; Tara Jagid is auction chair, and Allison Hechler chairs the games committee.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Proceeds support children with physical, emotional and developmental disabilities who attend the Guttenberg Center for Special Services at the JCC.
