L’Oréal USA “Fore the Children" Golf Scores Big

September 16, 2013

Annual event this year raises $575K for Children's Specialized Hospital.

An incredible 530 golfers turned out September 10, 2013, for the sixth annual L’Oréal USA “Fore the Children” charity golf event, which raised $575,000 to benefit the Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. This year’s fundraising adds to the $2 million raised by L’Oréal USA since 2008. L’Oréal USA continues its commitment to the state of NJ by employing close to 2,500 people with a second headquarters located in Berkeley Heights. 

Hosted by L’Oréal USA Operations Americas, based in Clark, the outing took place at two area golf clubs, Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster and Fox Hollow Golf Course in Branchburg.

The event’s special guest was Children’s Specialized Hospital patient Bryce Patrick and his family. 

The funds raised at this year’s golf outing will support the expansion of the PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick.  The 60-bed pediatric inpatient rehabilitation hospital serves children affected by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth and life-changing illnesses.  The expansion, slated to begin in fall of 2013, will create 8 new beds, for patients just like Bryce to receive intensive physical, occupational, speech and psychological therapies.  With L’Oréal’s support, the hospital hopes to serve even more children in need of inpatient rehabilitative care.   

“We are once again extremely grateful to all of our sponsors, employees and participants who generously donated and volunteered their time for this event especially our L’Oréal USA Charity event Steering Committee,” stated Morris Lenczicki, event chairman, treasurer of Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees, and VP of Operations Americas at L’Oréal USA. 
 
“L’Oréal’s generous contributions and efforts have had a profound affect on the patients and families we serve,” said Phil Salerno, President and Chief Development Officer of Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation “In addition to fundraising, so many L'Oréal USA employees have volunteered their time to help make each patient's stay a little brighter. We are fortunate to have L'Oréal USA as a part of the Children's Specialized family.”
 
Many suppliers, donors, and event sponsors supported the event.   The top sponsor list includes: Walker International, Unette Corporation and RockTenn.
