Susan Wright Memorial Golf Outing Raises $40,000
May 19th, 2017
The family of Susan "Sue" Wright, a parent and long-time volunteer of The Arc of Essex County hosted a golf outing in her memory in on Monday, May 15th at the Montclair Golf Club at Rock Spring. Featuring a full day of golf, lunch, and dinner, the event raised $40,000 for The Arc of Essex County and its Special Young Adults (SYA) day program.
Sue and her family were first introduced to The Arc of Essex County more than 30 years ago when they enrolled in the Stepping Stones program with their son Billy. Sue would volunteer at Stepping Stones, and later SYA, when bringing Billy to and from program. She was instrumental in the success of The Arc's annual golf outing, running it for many years.
Nearly 65 golfers and over 100 friends, family, and members of The Arc of Essex County community participated in the Susan Wright Memorial Golf Outing, enjoying the beautiful course, delicious food, and activities and raffles. The Arc extends its sincerest gratitude to the Wright Family, the event volunteers, and all of the attendees who contributed so generously.
