Cedar Hill Golf and Country Club in Livingston, NJ was the site of the 7th annual M.O.R.E. Golf Outing and Banquet, held on June 29, 2015.

The golfers enjoyed a delicious barbecue luncheon outside on the terrace before making their way out onto the beautiful course. The more than 60 golfers consisted of many supporters who have attended every year, as well as some enthusiastic newcomers!

Following a perfect day out on the links, the golfers were joined by more than 30 additional guests for refreshing drinks and passed hor d’oeuvres at the cocktail hour. All had a chance to discuss the birdies and the bogeys of the day while perusing and bidding on the many Silent Auction items, as well as purchase tickets for raffle prizes and 50/50. Barbara Zecca, Vice President of the Board of M.O.R.E., was instrumental in obtaining a wide variety of prizes that included exciting trips with hotel stays, gift certificates to great restaurants, beautiful jewelry and interesting art work.

During the delicious dinner in the “M.O.R.E. green” decorated banquet room, everyone had the opportunity to hear Jim Miller, President Emeritus and his daughter, Estella speak about their most recent trip to Medhen to visit Sister Senkenesh and meet with the children. Jim showed the guests photos of these beautiful children as well as changes and improvements made within the walls of the Medhen Center that have been made possible by the generosity of our donors.

Co-chair of the outing, Tom Padula, thanked all who attended this very important fundraiser. Tom announced the winning foursome of the day; Ed Keegan, Pat Leonard, John Klett and Frank Echanique. As in previous years, the Dore and Josh Beinhaker foursome were thanked for being the first group to “sign up” for the outing! President Maureen Strenk also thanked all in attendance for making this year’s M.O.R.E.’s Golf Outing another great success!

Additionally, due to the overwhelming positive response of this year’s outing, we will be holding the 8th Annual Outing and Banquet at the same location next year! We look forward to seeing all again in 2016!
