The Golf Outing’s Inception
Each July, Link runs a golf outing to increase awareness about Link Community School and raise critical dollars to make its operations possible.
This all started when Rich Mullarkey, Anthony Coscio and Jim Gervasi got together to talk about how to support Link Community School. They had just learned about Link through former trustee and current advisory council member Chris Garavente. They were impressed with Link’s program and results, and decided to create an event that built on one of their passions—golf. They set their sites on an exclusive course in Jackson, New Jersey—Metedeconk National Golf Course.
Led by these four gentlemen, the event has grown over the years and contributed over $1 million to Link Community School. The event has expanded substantially and both early and later supporters are involved in event leadership. A benefit committee plans the event each year with Link’s Development Staff. We hope you will consider getting involved and supporting the event as a committee member or through event sponsorship, hole sponsorship, foursomes and individual golfers, or the golf outing auction.
