Weichert, Realtors will host its 21st Annual Charity Outing on Thursday, Aug. 19, at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, N.J. The event, which will raise funds for the American Cancer Society and breast cancer research, will be coordinated by Chairperson Joe McDonald, regional vice president of Weichert, Realtors.

Though last year’s Charity Outing was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Weichert employees, associates, friends and sponsors still raised a collective donation of $25,000 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) and breast cancer research.

“It’s a real testament to the kindness and generosity of people when, in the most challenging of times, they can still find it in their hearts to give,” McDonald said. “Overall, the amazing generosity, support and involvement from our Weichert friends and family has helped us raise $1.637 million for breast cancer research over the past 20 years. We are thrilled that the Charity Outing is back on this year and we are looking forward to a very successful event.”

Individuals and businesses are invited to participate in the fundraiser, which features an afternoon of golf on two courses. Team awards for first and second place and the Most Honest will be given on each course. There will also be contests for both men and women for longest drive, closest to the hole and straightest drive. In addition, hole-in-one prizes feature 2021 luxury automobiles, and there will be a raffle with the grand prize of an LCD television.

“So many of us know someone who has been directly or indirectly impacted by breast cancer,” McDonald said. “We encourage members of the community to join us in fighting this devastating disease by attending our Charity Outing or simply making a donation in recognition of a friend, family member or colleague.”

A donation of $399 provides individuals a round of golf with cart, lunch, foursome photo, and a three-hour buffet cocktail reception and awards banquet after golfing. There is also a Golf Clinic package at the same cost for novice to advanced golfers that includes three hours of instruction, club rentals, lunch and the buffet cocktail reception. For a donation of $175, an individual may attend only the buffet cocktail reception and awards banquet.

For those not wishing to golf, there are two non-golfer options. For a $399 donation, the Member-for-a-Day package allows participants to take advantage of the many facilities and services available at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club, including golf and tennis clinics, the driving range, a yoga class, various exercise or swimming opportunities, or simply lounging by the pool, as well as lunch and the three-hour buffet cocktail reception. There is also a three-hour Paint-and-Sip Package for a $259 donation, which includes group painting lessons accompanied by wine or other beverages, plus lunch and the buffet cocktail reception.

A range of eight sponsorship levels ensures an affordable sponsorship option for both large and small businesses. Contributions of gifts and prizes are also welcome from businesses as donations.
