The Curchin Group Raises $16,000 for Local Charities in Eighth Annual Miniature Golf Tournament
RED BANK, N.J. (November 13, 2013) - The Curchin Group, LLC, a mid-sized, full-service accounting firm based in Red Bank, N.J., raised $16,000 for two local charities at the Eighth Annual Curchin Open Miniature Golf Tournament held on November 6, 2013. Clients, sponsors, and friends played a round of miniature golf on Curchin's team-designed 9-hole course, which flowed through the Firm's office. Since 2006, the annual indoor tournament has taken place at The Curchin Group's Red Bank, New Jersey office.
Each player donated $20.00 for admission, which included a round of mini golf, food, and beverages. Additional funds were raised through the sale of Fantasy Scratch-Off cards and the event was sponsored by over 50 businesses and individuals. Peter Pfister, CPA, a Partner at Curchin and the Chairperson of the event, remarked, "It's so rewarding to see our Curchin team and the community cheerfully join in every year with increasingly stronger numbers to support all these wonderful causes. Our donors help ensure that 100% of all funds raised go directly to these charities, and it's icing on the cake that everyone has so much fun doing it."
All proceeds from the event benefited two local charities: Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore, which serves girls in Monmouth and Ocean counties, N.J., to follow the mission of Girl Scouts to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place; and Family & Children's Service (FCS) of Long Branch, N.J., founded in 1909 with a mission to help people at vulnerable times in their lives through education, intervention, care and counseling. Over the past eight years, The Curchin Open has raised and donated approximately $105,000 to local charities.
