The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore raised $64,700 during its May 15 Girl Scout Golf Classic at Manasquan River Golf Club, Brielle. Money raised during the event will help create additional opportunities for girls to become involved in the Girl Scout organization.

This year, State Senator Jennifer Beck (R – 11th District) returned as honorary chairperson for the event.  Serving as event co-chairs were Jan Kirsten, Ocean County College, and Phil Brilliant, Brilliant Environmental Services.

Participation in the Golf Classic provides opportunities for girls in Monmouth and Ocean counties to take part in Girl Scout programs, trips and activities. Support from sponsors allows girls facing financial barriers to participate in a range of Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore programs including robotics, archery, STEM, environmental awareness activities and more.
