Fore! (the Kids)

It’s almost that time again! We’re gearing up (and practicing our swings!) for the 7th Annual Fore the Kids Golf Tournament. Set for October 2, 2017, this year’s tournament will be held at the scenic Somerset Hills Country Club in Bernardsville, NJ. Rated as one of the top 100 golf courses in the United States by Golf Digest, the course was so well designed in 1918 by A.W. Tillinghast that it’s barely changed since its original conception. And with its rolling terrain and variety in the greens, it makes for both a gorgeous and challenging course.

With more than twelve weeks left until the event, we’ve already had a fantastic response from golfers. We can safely say that fundraising is in full swing, and we’re excited to keep the momentum going!

We are so appreciative of our sponsors and golfers who’ve stepped up to the tee, but we’re not out of the bunker yet. Fundraising continues up to and through the day of the event with our event auctions, door prizes and more!

How can you help? There’s a spectrum of options! You can support us by donating an auction item. The auction offers many items to choose from that will fit any budget. There are also several sponsorship opportunities such as our Brunch Sponsor, Awards Sponsor, Cocktail Sponsor, and Tee Sponsor levels.

Not a golfer or can’t take the day off? Network with sponsors and golfers by joining us at the dinner portion of our event: it’s always a fantastic day, and we’d love for you to be a part of it!

We rely on our supporters, friends, and family to help us make the weeks leading up to the tournament day as big a success as possible. Funds raised at the tournament are “fore” the clients and students and support the many vocational, social, and academic programs and opportunities we offer at Spectrum360. The more we raise, the more mission we can carry out!

Established in 2010 by Mike Conley, the Fore the Kids tournament has raised over $600,000 to support the success of our students and adults. Money raised at the tournament has allowed us to fulfill our promise to offer options across a lifetime. Learn more at golf.spectrum360.org. To support Spectrum360, you can visit our donation page.
