METUCHEN, NJ - On Monday, May 12, the second annual Gary Waters Charity Golf Classic was held at the Metuchen Country Club and $25,000 was raised for Coaches vs. Cancer and Project Pride.
Coaches vs. Cancer is a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) that raises money for cancer research.
Project Pride is a Newark-based non-profit, all-volunteer organization that helps youths with academic programs, recreation programs and college scholarships.
"It was a very exciting and rewarding day," said Waters. "The weather held out for us and everyone had a great time. The most important part of the day was the money that was raised for two very worthwhile causes. In one day, thanks to the generosity of so many people, we helped better the lives of cancer patients with part of the proceeds going to Coaches vs. Cancer. And we also enriched the lives of children, who are the future of our communities, our state, and our great country.”
