Local Charities Selected to Receive Proceeds from 16th Annual Curchin Open Indoor Miniature Golf Tournament!August 17, 2021
The Curchin Group, LLC, a mid-sized, full-service accounting firm based in Red Bank, N.J., announced today that Mercy Center & Society for The Prevention of Teen Suicide two locally-based nonprofit organizations will be receiving all proceeds from the firm’s 2021 annual indoor miniature golf tournament for charity, The Curchin Open.
Since the event began in 2005, the firm has raised more than $213,000. Following last year’s pivot to a virtual Open, we are excited to return to an in-person event! We can’t wait to see our community come together once again to benefit two amazing charities.
These charities worked tirelessly throughout the Coronavirus crisis to serve their respective missions. Mercy Center’s Family Resource Center quickly adapted to virtual counseling and created a Healing Garden for outdoor sessions. The Society for The Prevention of Teen Suicide hosted virtual presentations, developed free online learning tools for teachers and students, and hosted a drive-in concert featuring high school bands.
This year’s event takes place indoors at Curchin’s office in Red Bank on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. Curchin is offering sponsorship opportunities to local businesses that would like to help the selected charities as well as raise their profile in the community.
