Princeton, New Jersey – August 18, 2016 – 74 golfers participated in the Good Grief annual charity golf outing at TCP Jasna Polana on Monday, raising $96,600 to support its mission to help grieving families coping with loss through support programs, education, and advocacy.

“The 2016 Good Grief Golf Outing was a huge success this year! The golf course was in spectacular condition and we’re already looking forward to next year’s event,” said Robert Meirowitz M.D. of Princeton Gastroenterology Associates, who was the event co-chair along with Irvin Urken, a financial representative with Northwestern Mutual.

The event was supported by a number of local business including Gold Sponsors Celgene and Private Advisors Group, Silver Sponsors Atlantic Health Systems, Bayer Healthcare and JBK Associates, Bronze Sponsors Educational Services Group, Phybus, Princeton Anesthesia Services, Princeton Gastroenterology Associates, Princeton HealthCare System and Prism Advisory Group. Other generous sponsors include, AmeriHealth who sponsored the golfers lunch, Hamilton Jewelers, Investor’s Bank in Trenton, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance, The Lerner Family, The Stoddard Family, Kevin Donovan of UBS Financial Services, and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services/Fox & Roach Realty. Audi Princeton generously lent some excitement to the outing by sponsoring the Hole in One prize of a new Audi Q5. BlackRock employees were on hand as volunteers for the day, helping the event run smoothly.

“The Good Grief Golf Tournament has become a fun and important annual event to support our children and families,” CEO, Joe Primo, said. “Thanks to the generosity of the many people who make it successful, we are able to make a significant difference in the ability to work towards a community where no child ever has to grieve alone. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our trustees, volunteers, and event sponsors.”
