Little Falls, NJ (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
The Fifth Annual David Harris Golf Invitational which will benefit underprivileged kids in New Jersey is attracting celebrity participation and corporate sponsors.
Participants can expect to enjoy a great day of golf with David Harris of the NY Jets and other celebrity guests at a world class course, compete for prizes, enjoy a fabulous cocktail party and dinner – and feel good about the charity they are supporting.
Give the Kids Hope Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable organization, directly benefits underprivileged children in New Jersey. The foundation has set a goal in 2014 to build a new regulation size basketball court at Camp Hope in West Milford, NJ where over 2,500 underprivileged children from North Jersey attend at no cost every summer.
The foundation was started in 2009 by Stephen Tilton Jr. and Judith Schumacher-Tilton of Tilton Automotive Group, to provide less fortunate children the opportunity for recreational and educational activities that they might not otherwise have, including a chance to go to summer camp and sing by a campfire, take a nature walk or enjoy an educational trip to the zoo.
David Harris has become the face of Give the Kids Hope Foundation, inspiring many less fortunate youngsters with his enthusiastic participation and recalling that his own upbringing led him to join the group, saying with a smile “we grew up with so much love, we never knew we were poor.” This year’s benefit Golf Invitational which is named in his honor will support needed funds to build a new regulation size basketball court at Camp Hope in West Milford, NJ.
Give the Kids Hope Foundation President, Stephen Tilton Jr. commented “We are very thankful to our celebrity chairman David Harris of the New York JETS, for his continued involvement and enthusiastic support of the foundation and to Essex County Executive, Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr., who has once again graciously volunteered to co-chair the event.”
Among the contests and prizes planned for the 2014 David Harris Invitational are a $ 10,000 (60’ putt) and hole in one prizes that include: a 2014 Chevrolet Impala and a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS, sponsored by Schumacher Chevrolet in Little Falls, NJ and Gearhart Chevrolet in Denville, NJ.
Many opportunities are available to support the David Harris Golf Invitational and its cause through participation as a player or sponsor, or by donating monetarily or providing an auction prize.
