Long Branch, NJ, June 23, 2011 – More than 120 golfers teed off under brilliant blue skies Monday, June 20 at Deal Golf & Country Club for Family & Children’s Service’s (FCS) annual Golf Classic, raising more than $30,000 to support the critical work of Monmouth County’s oldest charitable organization. The day-long event included a morning 9-hole tournament, the Women’s Shore Challenge, and an 18-hole mixed golf outing in the afternoon, followed by an awards dinner.

“Family & Children’s Service has been meeting the needs of area residents for more than a century, but we couldn’t do it without the support of the local community,” says Vincent L. D’Elia, president and CEO of FCS. “We are grateful to the many people who donated their time, talent and resources to make this year’s Golf Classic a success.”

For the sixth consecutive year, Rahway-based RSI Bank, with a branch in Pier Village, served as the event’s lead sponsor. Other corporate sponsors included K. Shaw Construction Co., LLC, Flexcraft, Sansone Jr.’s 66 Auto Mall, Boynton & Boynton, Builder’s General Supply & The Chrissy Foundation and Wells Fargo.
