Opportunity Project is getting ready for this year’s Annual Golf Classic. The event will be held on September 24, 2018 at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park, NJ. Co-Chairs of the event are Jacob S. Buurma, Sal Davino, Marshall Freidus, Chris Johnson, Murray Kushner, Jared Levine, Jonathan Sobel, Eileen Sudler and Marc E. Berson.

The day will include a golf scramble, tournament, the chance to win an Aston Martin with a hole-in-one score, prizes, cocktails and a dinner buffet. The evening will also feature a live auction and raffle with unique prizes from Rao’s and the U.S. Open.

Brain Injury is a lifelong injury. Unfortunately, it remains the leading cause of death and disability in America’s children and adults ages 1 – 44. As we culminate our 24th year providing programs and services to people who have sustained a brain injury, we are proud to also provide local and regional awareness initiatives for communities, schools and corporations. Prevention is the only cure.

Over 1.7 million Americans sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury each year. More than 5 million people in the U.S. live with the after-effects of brain injury. Opportunity Project’s Clubhouse Program is the first and only program for adults with brain injury in New Jersey. This is our 10th Annual Golf Classic, directly funding the Clubhouse Programs. The Golf Classic has received support from over 1,300 donors. The event raised $51,170 in 2008, and has grown to raise $274,426 in 2017. These funds have gone directly towards increasing OP’s programs and services over the past 10 years.

Opportunity Project has grown from a 1 day a week program in 1994 with 15-20 members to a program with 100 members in our own beautiful Clubhouse, serving over 500 members and their families. We turn no one away, yet we receive little public funding.

Your support will enable OP to continue its work on behalf of individuals with brain injury.
