Kings golf classic to benefit hunger relief services

Kings Food Markets announced that its third annual charity golf classic, which benefits its "Act Against Hunger" initiative, will be held Aug. 15.

The tournament brings together Kings and its industry partners to raise support for programs that provide hunger relief services in communities throughout New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

"We are so proud to host our annual golf classic in support of our 'Act Against Hunger' initiative," Judy Spires, president and chief executive officer of Kings Food Markets, based in Parsippany, NJ, said in a press release. "As a company dedicated to feeding families, we and our partners are serious about our role in ending hunger, and this golf classic helps us do just that."

The golf classic will take place at the Crystal Springs Resort in Vernon Valley, NJ, and will include brunch, cocktail hour, buffet dinner and an award presentation highlighting leaders in the community and their dedicated efforts supporting hunger relief. Attendees will also enjoy complimentary green fees and use of a power cart.

Early bird sponsorships are available and include hole sponsorship, registration for a foursome and individual tickets. All proceeds from the annual charity golf classic will be donated to help increase hunger relief awareness and education throughout the year. Past organizations that have benefited from the annual event include Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, Center for Food Action, Table to Table and Neighbor to Neighbor.

"In the last two years, we've been able to help thousands of families all across New Jersey, New York and Connecticut because of the participation and generous support of our golf classic sponsors," Dan McGivney, event chairperson for Kings, said in the press release. "It is because of our shared commitment to ending hunger in the communities we serve, that we are able to make the incredible impact that we do."
