Lakewood, N.J., May 11, 2015—Georgian Court University’s 2015 Golf Classic drew more than 100 golfers and a full house of friends during the May 11 event at the Spring Lake Golf Club. Honoree Bob Mulcahy (above, center), who received the Joseph E. Buckelew Civic Service Award, emphasized the importance of raising money for student scholarships and a new turf project at GCU. President Emerita Rosemary E. Jeffries, RSM, Ph.D., was also honored at the event that raised nearly $130,000.
“Good support and this kind of investment helps to provide them with a university experience,” Mr. Mulcahy said. “We are a vehicle to help do the things we need to for those who really need it, especially at a time when we need to educate people who come out of college with a sense of values.”
