More than 120 golfers participated in the event which raised nearly $100,000 that will provide scholarship support for qualified students, fund collaborative research initiatives between students and faculty, and support special programs and projects on campus.

“This year’s outing was a great success thanks to the support from our sponsors, golfers and the hard work of the Ramapo and North Jersey CC staff,” said Frank Conway, of Franklin Lakes, who served as Golf Committee Chairman.  “We could not have asked for better weather in July and the North Jersey course was in top condition.”
