NFL Alumni Central Jersey Chapter Helps Raise $95,000 for Boy Scouts of America in Monmouth County
The NFL Alumni Central Jersey Chapter 1th Annual “Caring for Kids” Charity Golf Classic benefiting The Boy Scouts of America Monmouth Council was held on September 14th at the Navesink Country Club. The event hosted by the NFL Alumni was able to raise $95,000.00 for the local Boy Scouts. NFL Alumni President, Michael Attardi with Boy Scouts, William Monternaro had put together a former NFL star-studded golf event. Super Bowl 49 winner, Tim Wright was the MC for the event. Some other NFL Alumni players were Bart Oates, Ned Bolcar, Johnathan Stupar, Karl Nelson, Al Singleton, Thom Huff, Ryan Spadola, and O.J. Anderson to name a few. “Our goal was not to only raise money for this fine organization but to bring awareness of all the good they bring to children here in Monmouth County.” Said NFL Alumni President, Michael Attardi, originally from Long Branch.
Attardi continued, “The Monmouth Council Boy Scouts of America depends on charitable contributions to fund its annual operational budget. In 2019, 215 young men achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Collectively, these scouts coordinated over 22,000 hours of community service projects for various agencies throughout Monmouth and Middlesex Counties.”
Founded in 1967 by a small group of successful retired NFL players, the National Football League Alumni is the oldest, most well-known and well-respected retired player organization in professional sports. Membership includes thousands of retired players, coaches, front office executives, spouses, cheerleaders, and Touchdown Members.
This is what NFL Alumni, Vice-President Tim Wright had to say, “The Central Jersey Chapter’s primary mission is our “Caring for Kids” 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our goal is to create local events to support local children. We also help inform, assist, and serve former NFL players in their post-NFL lives. Alumni are offered a diverse package of medical, business, and legal services to help keep them and their families healthy, productive, and connected to the league and their former teammates.”
NFL Alumni also has a traditional mission of “Caring for Kids” across the country. Player alumni give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 36 regional chapters. It is a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years. Alumni support typically raises more than $1.5 million dollars for worthwhile causes.
Our goal is to support local charities with their fundraising projects through a partnership with the NFL Alumni Association. Please call us at 848-218-9009 for all Central Jersey Chapter information.
