CBCF TO HOST 10TH ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC

2017 Gold Outing

The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will host its 10th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, August 7th at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., site of the USGA 2012 Men’s Senior Amateur Championship, the 2014 MGA Mid-Amateur Championship and has been one of Golf Week’s “Top 100 Classic Courses in America.”

The annual “Pink is the New Green®” event is one of the most popular and successful events sponsored by CBCF having raised millions to assist the efforts of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor, Dr. Larry Norton.  Dr. Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is leading the fight against breast cancer with trailblazing work, and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.

Reservations are now open for both the morning and afternoon sessions of The Golf Classic.  The morning session will begin at 7:00 a.m. with registration and breakfast, followed by a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m.  The afternoon session will begin at 10:30 a.m. with registration and breakfast and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.  An $18,000 winner-take-all-chip-off will take place immediately following conclusion of play.

The day concludes with a cocktail reception and awards dinner where Dr. Norton will address guests.  A raffle drawing will also be held for a 2017 Ford Mustang convertible, courtesy of Fette Ford. Those interested in participating in the 10th Annual Golf Classic can call (973) 471-CBCF (2223) or email register@curebreastcancerfoundation.org. Continue reading

Morris Arts’ Ehlers & Coladarci Scholarships

2016-12-21_10-36-24

Morris Arts is pleased to offer two scholarship opportunities for graduating high school seniors who have exhibited artistic excellence in dance, drama, music, or visual arts and plan to pursue post-secondary studies at an accredited institution or acknowledged arts school or fine arts program. The Elaine Ehlers Arts Scholarship, in the amount of $5,000, and The Eugenie Coladarci Arts Scholarship, in the amount of $1,500, were created to recognize artistic excellence, encourage the artists of the future, and to celebrate the value of the arts to the human experience.

Morris County high school seniors graduating in June 2017 who are currently attending public, private, or parochial school in New Jersey are eligible. Applicants must (a) be Morris County residents, (b) plan to pursue post-secondary studies at an accredited institution or acknowledged arts school or fine arts program, and (c) have demonstrated artistic excellence in any one of four (4) arts disciplines: dance, drama, music, or visual arts.

The Elaine Ehlers Arts Scholarship was established in 2002 in memory of Elaine Ehlers (1953-2001), a health-care administrator by profession, who had a voracious appetite for all things artistic and musical.  She derived intellectual and emotional sustenance from the arts and supported programs at many museums and musical institutions.  By establishing this scholarship, an enduring legacy has been created to reward those who possess artistic talent and who plan to further their arts education. Former Ehlers winners include pianist Daniel Shleyenkov; pianist and flutist Joshua Min; harpist, Ashley Jackson; singer/composer/lyricist/pianist, arranger/community musical organizer Deborah Neigher; jazz guitarist Alex Wintz;singer/composer Tom Barth;  visual artist Marissa Rich;  pianist Yuqing Meng;ballroom/Latin dancer Daniel Knapp; ballet-modern dancer/ choreographerMadelyn Eltringham; trumpeter Joseph Soriano; actor Rachel Moss, percussionistNeal McNulty,  percussionist Reed Puleo and, most recently, composer Zachary Catron.
