The Charles Lafitte Foundation’s seventh annual Golf Classic, held June 28, 2010 at Trump National in Bedminster, N.J., raised $450,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth County.
It has been the history and goal of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth County, for the past 32 years, to make a positive difference in the lives of at-risk children through professionally supported, primarily one-to-one mentoring relationships with a caring adult, and to assist the children in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become confident, competent and caring individuals.
“Creating a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth County benefits a truly important asset – our children.” said Mrs. Citron, who selects the foundation’s beneficiaries herself, along with her husband, daughter and CLF President, Jennifer Vertetis.
“The funds raised will enable us to reduce our list of over 50 children waiting for a mentor, bring awareness to the community of the impact of our programs, and most importantly, expand our services by doubling the number of children being served by 2013,” said William Salcedo, executive director of BBBSMC.
