“The Golf Classic raised vital funds to support the mission of the American Red Cross.”

Autumn weather and outstanding course conditions set the stage for the 2012 American Red Cross Golf Classic, an event that continues to gain popularity among New Jersey businesses and golf enthusiasts. The Plainfield Country Club golf course, the 2012 site host, is a celebrated, top-ranked course in the United States by Golf Digest and Golfweek magazine that was originally brought to life by famed course architect Donald Ross. Event attendees from across New Jersey were able to enjoy an incredible day complete with a first-class golf experience.

The American Red Cross would like to congratulate the Golf Classic committee, led by Mr. George Ziminski and Mr. Mike Kollar, for an outstanding event! Sponsored by leading New Jersey businesses such as Johnson & Johnson, Rhodia Inc., Tumi, Tri-State Capital Bank, First Choice Bank, Fulton Bank of New Jersey, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Weeks Marine, Inc., Westgate Management Co., and URS Corporation, the Golf Classic raised vital funds to support the mission of the American Red Cross.
