The Limousine Association of New Jersey raised more than $7,000 for The Salvation Army at the organization’s 1st Annual LANJ Golf Outing, which was held on September 18 at the Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, N.J.
LANJ president Jason Sharenow and Golf Outing Committee chair Brian O’Neill presented Elijah O. Kahn, Major and Corps Commanding Officer & West Central Region Coordinator, The Salvation Army Trenton Citadel Corps, with the monies donated by LANJ, members and others who attended the golf outing. The pot was sweetened by an additional $310 when the event’s 50/50 winner gave his winnings back for the cause.
All of the money contributed is designated for The Salvation Army’s hurricane relief efforts in Florida and Texas. The Salvation Army, which has been pursuing its mission since 1865 and serves in 127 countries around the globe, assists approximately 25 million Americans every year.
In addition to The Salvation Army donation, the LANJ on September 18, also presented representatives of the Police Unity Tour with a check for $5,000, a portion of the 1st Annual LANJ Golf Outing’s proceeds.
The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour, which was founded by an officer in the Florham Park Police Department, and has grown into nine chapters with nearly 2,500 members nationwide, is to raise awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. The organization’s secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum in Washington, D.C.
