The Brookdale Foundation hosts several major events each year: The Scholarship Recognition Ceremony in March, the Scholarship Ball in May, and the Education Open Golf Outing in September.

2014 Education Open Golf Outing

The Foundation’s 35th Annual Education Open Golf Outing was held under bright and sunny skies on Thursday, September 18, at Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club in Farmingdale. Thanks to the generosity of the golfers, sponsors, donors and auction contributors, the event raised nearly $50,000 for the Brookdale Foundation “Building Minds, Building Futures” scholarship fund.

The day featured many individual and team contests including men’s and women’s closest to the pin and longest drives. Prizes were awarded to the team with the lowest gross score and to four teams with the lowest net scores. Each golfer received a luxury sweater vest and a pair of sports sunglasses. Alexandra Cardaio, one of the more than 400 students with financial need who received Brookdale Foundation scholarships this year, spoke at the awards dinner and thanked everyone for helping her and her fellow scholarship recipients to pursue their dream of earning a college degree.

Long considered one of the best charity outings in the region, the Education Open provides golfers and guests with a first-class golfing experience at a premier club.
