The Woman’s Club of Parsippany Troy Hills (WCPTH) held its 36th Annual Tee Off for Education Golf Classic & Luncheon Fundraiser at the Knoll West Country Club on July 11th. This is the primary fundraiser for the club’s educational programs and scholarships. WCPTH club member Lois Preis White chaired the successful fundraiser for the second straight year. All money raised goes back to Parsippany students (open to both male and female students) in educational programs such as scholarships to graduating high school seniors, Citizenship Awards to graduating 8th graders, 5th Grade Reading Awards, a Spelling Bee, Dr. Seuss Birthday events and library donations. For the 2017 school year, thirty-one students were honored by the club, including ten high school seniors who each received a scholarship. With the money raised at this year’s fundraiser the club will be able to meet or exceed the number of scholarships and educational awards for the 2018 school year.
Over 60 golfers, including Parsippany Councilman Michael dePierro enjoyed the day. There were also 80 other attendees, including the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) President Jean Revis and women from other clubs in the NJSFWC organization, who all came and enjoyed a morning of bridge and other games. Mayor James Barbario and Parsippany Councilman Loretta Gragnani joined everyone for lunch. And after lunch there was an afternoon of bidding on over 55 Tricky Tray prizes and the 50/50 Raffle drawing.
Next year the 37th Annual Tee Off for Education Golf Classic will be held on Tuesday, July 10
