Hemophilia Association of New Jersey

Events >> Golf Tournament

Date: June 20, 1016

Dear Golfer,

This year marks our 37th Annual "Dennis Keelty Memorial Golf Classic". It has evolved from proceeds of $1500 the first year to $128,000 last year. Not only is 2016 our 37th year, we also have the opportunity to surpass the 2.5+ million dollar mark in funds raised over the duration of the tournament. Many of you are among those businesses whose support has helped us grow. You have been an important part of our history, and we wish to thank you most sincerely and ask for your continuing support in achieving our goal for this year as well as our ongoing efforts.

Again, the Golf Tournament will be held on the 3rd Monday of June (June 20, 2016) at the Plainfield Country Club, Woodland Avenue, Edison, NJ. Hemophilia, the hereditary tendency to prolonged bleeding, can be controlled by therapy involving replacement of blood. The cost of such therapy is $150,000 to $250,000 per family a year every year, a cost not many families can afford.

From the time of its inception to the present, the HANJ has remained an agency of the community, marked with program viability and fiscal integrity. We exist to assist our members, in crisis situations, and in everyday life. Charity Navigator has ranked HANJ a four star charity (highest score possible) for sound fiscal management.

Last year medical insurance policies purchased by Hemophilia Association of New Jersey for its New Jersey members in need cost $750,000. This year the soaring insurance rates of all providers will lead to insurance costs that double for HANJ.

A cure for Hemophilia will be found in the not too distant future. Our primary goal of supporting research for a cure is still in place. Maintaining our community in optimal health until the cure is found is our mission.

In addition to golf festivities, we will be conducting a 50-50 drawing. Tickets are $100.00 each for those interested in participating. Advance ticket sales will begin shortly.

Enjoy a Buffet Brunch, Cocktail Party and extended Reception. All this plus caddies or carts, greens fees, range balls, snack at Halfway House and all gratuities are included. This year golfers will be able to come in from the course and go directly into the reception; jackets are not required. Please note no cargo shorts allowed. There will be prizes and favors for everyone participating. It will again be an outstanding day -- good golf and great fun for all, and for a most worthy cause.

The format for this year's tournament will be best two balls of four using 90% of your handicap. There will be a shotgun start at 1:00 P.M.

I hope you will join us again this year, and I know you will gain much from the knowledge that you have helped those who depend upon your generosity.

Yours most sincerely,

George Keelty
