Columbia Bank’s 30th Annual Charity Golf Classic raised $100,000 with proceeds divided equally between the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hawthorne and Northwest New Jersey. The clubs promote the importance of planning for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle. Some 124 golfers took part in this annual charitable fundraiser held at North Jersey Country Club in Wayne.
“Each year Team Columbia looks forward to this fun event for a great cause,” said Thomas J. Kemly, President and CEO of Columbia Bank. “We are proud to support these two local Boys & Girls Club of America and their efforts to provide our youth with the tools for a bright future.”
