Advancing Opportunities to Host 26th Annual Rothwell Family Golf Classic

Advancing Opportunities, Inc., a leading provider of services and supports for people with disabilities across the state of New Jersey, announced its plans to host the 26th Annual Rothwell Family Golf Classic on September 24, 2018. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to install SmartHome technology in the agency’s group residences that will promote communication and greater independence.

A perennial community favorite, the Rothwell Family Golf Classic brings together business and community leaders for a day of golf, networking, and fundraising at Cherry Valley Country Club. Last year, the event reached its capacity of 120 golfers weeks in advance, and this year’s event is on track to meet that goal.

This year’s outing is particularly meaningful as it is the first since the passing of long-time community leader and philanthropist Larry Rothwell whose son Michael serves as the Chair of the event. The Rothwell Family, under Larry’s leadership, has shown an unwavering commitment to supporting the disabilities community, and this year’s Golf Classic will serve as a testament to his work.

“The Rothwell Family Golf Classic is always a highlight of our year at Advancing Opportunities,” said CEO Jack Mudge. “This year, not only will we raise critical funds for our programs and celebrate the achievements of the people we serve, but we also get to celebrate Larry’s legacy of leadership within the community.”

Businesses and organizations can support the outing through sponsorships and registrations. Golf enthusiasts also have a second way to support Advancing Opportunities: The Great Golf Raffle and Auction. With the purchase of a $20 raffle ticket, golfers can win a foursome at one of eight exclusive country club courses: Deal, Spring Brook, Fiddler’s Elbow, North Jersey, Cherry Valley, Trenton, Brooklake, and Yardley. The organization is also auctioning off a foursome at Trump National Golf Club in Colts Neck.

Information about sponsoring or playing in the Rothwell Family Golf Classic and participating in the Great Golf Raffle and Auction can be found on the Advancing Opportunities website: www.advopps.org.
