Girl Scouts, Family & Children’s Service to Benefit from Curchin Mini-Golf Open


RED BANK – The Curchin Group’s annual indoor miniature golf tournament will once again benefit two locally based nonprofit organizations.

All proceeds from this year’s event sponsored by the mid-sized, full-service accounting firm will be Family & Children’s Service and the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore.

The Nov. 6 event, from 4 to 7 p.m., marks the eighth annual fundraiser at Curchin’s Red Bank office. Player fees are $20 per person, which includes one round of golf, food and beverages.

Curchin is offering sponsorship opportunities to local businesses that would like to help the selected charities as well as raise their profile in the community.

Located in Long Branch, Family & Children’s Service (FCS) is the oldest nonprofit social service agency in Monmouth County. It was founded in 1909 with a mission to help people at vulnerable times in their lives through education, intervention, care and counseling. Initially created to provide toys and food to local children in need during the holiday season, the organization now offers a wide range of programs including home care; caregiver services; the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP); Reading Buddies; Healthy Buddies; Kids Corps; Operation Sleighbells; Medicare assistance; adult protective services; Representative Payee program; and the Thrift Boutique, also located in Long Branch.
