About the “Be a HERO” Golf Tournament
The 14th Annual John R. Elliott “Be a HERO” Golf Tournament, hosted by MediLink Homecare, Inc., was held Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at the Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton, NJ. Funds raised from the event benefit the “John R. Elliott HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers®” a program of the John R. Elliott Foundation.
Over the past fourteen years, the tournament has raised over a half of a million dollars to promote the importance of sober designated drivers. Our community continues to enthusiastically support this wonderful event. This year’s outing met all our expectations!
In addition to a great day of golf, golfers were treated to a BBQ lunch hosted by Applebees®, a putting contest hosted by Townsquare Media, a full buffet dinner and an opportunity to bid on great auction items. Prizes were awarded to the top three winning foursomes and to the “High Achievers” (the losing foursome due to the highest score). At the end of the day, each participant had an enjoyable time, the “John R. Elliott Campaign for Designated Drivers®” was tremendously supported, and we are looking forward to the next annual “Be a HERO” Golf Tournament.
