The 32nd Annual Higgins Golf Classic, presented by BD and Greenberg Traurig, took place on Monday, June 20, 2022. It was a beautiful day at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, NJ, with 220 golfers in attendance. The tournament was held on the prestigious River and Meadow courses.
While on the course, golfers were welcomed by Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ) athletes, Catherine Reischman, Lindsay Fulop, Bobby Fredricks, Casey Mann, and Ryan Musciotto.
Guests enjoyed tips from the NJPGA, gifts from Southern Tides, fun contest holes, camaraderie with friends and colleagues, a silent online auction and raffle which included fabulous experiences, foursomes at top New Jersey golf courses, sports & entertainment tickets and more.
After a great day of golf, committee Chairman, Doug Pridgen addressed the group as emcee, followed by President & CEO of SONJ, Heather Andersen, and Tom Reischman, father of an athlete, who thanked the Higgins Classic Committee and shared a special story about his daughter, Catherine, and their involvement with SONJ. Golfers were offered a wide variety of fresh seafood, mouth-watering meats, cheeses, salads, sides and much more during the savory buffet-style dinner! Sponsors were recognized with awards as well.
Thank you to our in-kind sponsors, Pin High Vodka, Ed Shannon and John Stark & Legend Cigars, Shawmut Design & Construction and PUMA, who all provided services that truly enhanced the event.
This incredible fundraiser raised over $160,000, all to benefit thousands of SONJ athletes and Unified partners across the Garden State.
Thank you to all who attended and the 60+ businesses that supported the event! Be sure to save the date for next year – June 19, 2023!
