Employees and supporters of L’Oréal USA Corporate Operations North America, Clark, NJ, raised a record breaking $500,000 at its fourth annual Fore the Children charity golf outing on Sept. 19. The money raised will benefit Children’s Specialized Hospital to support the expansion of its outpatient services, improve access to comprehensive rehabilitation care for children affected by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth, autism, developmental delays and life-changing illnesses.
Held at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster Township, NJ, and Fox Hollow Country Club in Branchburg, NJ, the outing drew 780 supporters and included 554 golfers playing 18 holes of golf on two different courses. Attendees also enjoyed silent and live auctions.
“L’Oréal USA Corporate Operations North America employees have done an outstanding job on this event. They have really adopted Children’s Specialized Hospital as their charity of choice," said Morris Lenczicki, L’Oréal USA Fore the Children committee chair, VP corporate operations North America and a trustee of Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. “Through our annual Fore the Children Golf Outing and special activities throughout the year, we have shown what can be done to make a difference in the lives of others, and how working together for a special cause brings us closer. This is one of the reasons why community service is such an enriching endeavor.”
Major sponsors of the Fore the Children charity golf outing included LA Enterprises, RockTenn, Unette Corp., Albea Group, Alpla, Arkay Packaging, CCL Tube, Century Packaging Inc., Coloredge, DMI-Dimensional Merchandising, IBM Corporation, Packaging Corporation of America, POP Displays US, and Topline Products.
