Marathon Energy and its guests had a spectacular time participating in the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce Annual Golf Classic this month. The charitable event focuses on “Empowering Children through Education” by providing scholarships to college-bound Ridgewood High School students who work and/or volunteer in Ridgewood’s Central Business District.
The warm and clear weather was a far cry from the wet and stormy weather that would have prevailed had the event been held on its original date in August. Beautiful grounds and ideal golfing conditions set the stage for what is being called the most successful golf outing to date. Marathon Energy, who has been an event sponsor for the last 6 years, participated in two foursomes and provided beverages for golfers throughout the day.
Attendees were provided with entertaining contests such as ‘Longest Drive’ and ‘Closest to the Pin’ in addition to 18 fun, yet challenging holes at the Ramsey Golf & Country Club course. All done in the name of charity, several raffle prizes were also awarded at dinner, with many of the prizes making their way back to the organization.
Marathon Energy’s CFO and Golf Outing Committee member, Jeff Grygier noted that he is “proud to be an active member of the Ridgewood Chamber, and cannot wait to surpass this year’s record at the next golf outing.”
Marathon Energy would like to extend a huge thank you to the Executive Director of the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce, Joan Groome, as well as other participants who helped make this exciting event a possibility. Thanks to tireless planning and fundraising efforts, more scholarships will be awarded to students this year than in recent years.
