NJ SEEDS Raises $125,000 at Annual Golf & Tennis Classic
On August 6, Fairfield-based Bleakley, Schwartz, Cooney & Finney, L.L.C. (BSCF) hosted the annual Golf & Tennis Classic benefitting New Jersey SEEDS. Nearly 200 golfers, tennis players and guests spent the day at Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, raising more than $125,000 in support of the nonprofit’s educational programs.
Led by Andy Schwartz and his partners, this is the 15th year that the team at BSCF has sponsored the Golf & Tennis Classic. In that time, BSCF has raised nearly $2 million through this event. Highlights of the day included a putting contest, live and silent auctions, and comments from Jamil McClintock, an alumnus of the SEEDS Scholars Program. After graduating from SEEDS in 2000, Jamil continued on his path to success at The Pingry School and Brown University. He is a 2013 J.D. candidate at Golden Gate University at San Francisco, and has been offered a position from DLA Piper Global.
For 20 years, New Jersey SEEDS has worked with motivated, high-achieving students from low-income families to transform their educational opportunities.
