Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity to host Annual Golf Outing on June 6th
Proceeds will benefit Habitat’s efforts to welcome 4 families home by next summer
Pitman, NJ. (May 9, 2022) – Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) will hold its 12th annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 6, 2022, at the historical Pitman Golf Course. Proceeds will support GCHFH’s Affordable Homeownership Program. The annual event is once again presented by GCHFH’s longtime community partner, First Harvest Credit Union.
“First Harvest Credit Union is proud to once again serve as a Whole House Sponsor for the ‘Build a House…Build a Dream’ Golf Outing,” said Ernest Huggard, First Harvest President and Chief Executive Officer. “We share Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity’s goal of helping families find stable and affordable housing. We’re happy to provide financing for qualified partner families purchasing Habitat homes, and we’re proud to support an event that has raised over $500,000 for such a worthwhile cause.”
The golf outing will begin at 11:30 a.m. with registration, networking, and lunch before the round of golf, surf and turf dinner, and a silent auction. Participants can register as individual golfers, foursomes, or through various sponsorships.
Proceeds will benefit Habitat’s efforts to welcome 4 families into homes by next summer in Gloucester County. At a time when the U.S. grapples with the economic fallout tied to the COVID-19 pandemic and the response to it, it is important to underscore the multiplier effect of investments in housing and how they may help accelerate our economic recovery.
“The Golf Outing has been a beloved tradition and successful fundraiser for GCHFH and we are thrilled to plan another terrific event this year. GCHFH has served as a critical lifeline in this community, especially these past few years, in providing much-needed affordable housing to support strong and stable households that are foundational to child development, health, and generational wealth-building,” said Ashley Griffiths, GCHFH Executive Director. “We invite the community to join us for a fun day of golf in a beautiful setting – an event that will have an amazing impact on the lives of local families.”
