The Frank Redfern Memorial Golf Open, the region’s premiere golf outing, is scheduled for Monday, July 15, 2013, at Lake Mohawk Golf Club in Sparta.

Made possible by Titanium Sponsor Atlantic Health System, parent organization of Newton Medical Center, proceeds will benefit the Newton Medical Center Foundation, which raises money to support the high-quality, state-of-the-art health care services at the hospital.

The annual event celebrates the late Frank Redfern, a Sussex County entrepreneur who was the driving force behind the opening of the Barn Hill Care Center, a skilled nursing center located next to Newton Medical Center. As a passionate supporter of Newton Medical Center, Redfern’s casual golf outings, sponsored by local businesses to support the hospital, grew in popularity over time to become an annual tradition in the business and general community of Sussex County and beyond.

“The golf open each year gives our local entrepreneurs, golf enthusiasts and other participants the opportunity to share the common commitment of Frank Redfern and Newton Medical Center to support the health of our community,” said Megan Sandow, chief development officer, Newton Medical Center Foundation.

Participants will enjoy a round of 18-hole golf on the spectacular course of the prestigious Lake Mohawk Golf Club, a private member owned golf club located in Sparta, NJ. The golf course is located at the base of a mountain ridge and overlooks Lake Mohawk, the second largest body of inland water in New Jersey. Golfers will be registered at the first hole from 7:00am to 2:00pm. A continental breakfast and lunch will be served, followed by hors d’oeuvres and dinner and an awards ceremony at 7:00pm.

The event will also include several hole-in-one opportunities including the chance to win:

·         A 2013 Mercedes GLK or a 2013 Mercedes C-Class generously donated by Intercar

·         $15,000 generously sponsored by Barn Hill Care Center

·         A one-week stay in Aruba, sponsored by the Newton Medical Center Foundation, in memory of Roland E. Johnson, M.D.

The event will also feature a 50/50 raffle with tickets sold for $10 each, with a chance to win up to $15,000.

To register, donate, or purchase a 50/50 raffle ticket today, please contact Dawn Sullivan at the Newton Medical Center Foundation at 973-579-8309, or by email at dawn.sullivan@atlantichealth.org.
