The 34th Annual Higgins Golf Classic, presented by BD and Greenberg Traurig, took place on Monday, June 17, 2024. It was a beautiful day at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, NJ when SONJ hosted 270 golfers on all three prestigious courses that the club offers, including the Meadow, River, and Forest Courses.

On the courses, golfers were welcomed by Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ) athletes, Catherine Reischman, Lindsay Fulop, Casey Mann & Johnny McCormack on contest holes. Many participants benefited by using the SONJ golfer drive as their first shot!

Two SONJ Unified Foursomes including: Tom & Elizabeth Abazia, Michael & Ryan Cockery, as well as Joe & Luke Conticchio and Ryan & Tony Musciotto enjoyed the day while playing a modified format.
