The 35th annual RWJ University Hospital Foundation Golf Classic at the Metedeconk National Golf Club raised more than $500,000, surpassing previous fundraising records.
Jingoli-DCO Energy served as the exclusive presenting sponsor for this year’s golf classic. Autoland, AST, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, HudMed LLC and Wm. Blanchard also generously participated as titanium sponsors.
“We were so pleased to serve as event sponsor of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Annual Golf Classic Invitational that benefited the Bristol Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital,” Joseph Jingoli, CEO of Jingoli, said. “Our relationship with RWJBarnabas Health and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, through our work on behalf of the Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center, is one we value greatly. The incredible care, medical breakthroughs and contributions offered by RWJUH and BMSCH in improving the lives of children and individuals of all ages in our region is nothing short of stellar, and we are proud to play a small role in helping to expand the system’s reach so more people can take advantage of all they have to offer.”
Proceeds from this year’s golf classic will continue to support advancements at BMSCH. Through previous years’ contributions, BMSCH has invested in cutting-edge technology and resources to aid neonatal and specialized surgery patients in addition to a dedicated critical care ambulance.
“We are deeply grateful for the generous support of our sponsors,” Bill Arnold, executive vice president, president, Southern region of RWJBarnabas Health, and CEO of RWJUH, said. “Their commitment to this year’s outing, as well as a stronger, healthier community, allows BMSCH to provide the highest level of specialized services to children and adolescents.”
BMSCH is the hub of New Jersey’s only academic pediatric medical campus, alongside Rutgers Child Health Institute and the PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital. In partnership with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, BMSCH brings together clinical research, the latest therapies and the nation’s top physicians and nurses to treat complex pediatric illnesses.
