The Greater Egg Harbor Regional Education Foundation was established in the fall of 1997 in honor of Ralph W. Martin, the district’s first business administrator and board secretary, who served the district from 1959 to 1997. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization with the intended mission of contributing to the educational experience of students at Absegami, Cedar Creek and Oakcrest High Schools through the application of financial resources, materials and community volunteers.

The tournament is the main fundraiser for the foundation and this year alone will allow the foundation to award grants totaling over $12,000 to district staff and students.

For more information or to register for the golf tournament, contact the Executive Director, Tom Grossi, at 609-625-1399.
