Arett Sales will once again be hosting its annual charity golf tournament to benefit the Angel Flight East organization during this year’s Open House at the Atlantic City Country Club.
Angel Flight East is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free air transportation to qualified patients and their families by arranging flights to distant medical facilities, delivering supplies to disaster areas, and reuniting families during desperate times.
The Angel Flight East volunteer pilots use their private planes to fly patients to their destinations and pay for all expenses for each mission they fly. 42% of all patients flown are children.
Founded in 1992, in response to community needs after Hurricane Andrew, local pilots formed Angel Flight East as a non profit. They flew 17 missions during that first year and have continued to grow the service each year. With more than 425 volunteer pilots based in 22 states, an average of 800 missions are coordinated each year.
As one of America’s oldest and most prestigious golf clubs, Atlantic City Country Club has been home to many firsts, including being the “Birth place of the Birdie.” The course has a tradition of fast and firm greens with uncompromising playing conditions and its bayside setting is reminiscent of the historic links in Scotland and Ireland.
Now is your opportunity to walk in the footsteps of champions on the legendary golf course named the #1 Public/Daily Fee golf Course in the state of New Jersey. Steeped in history and tradition, the Atlantic City Country Club was the birthplace of The PGA Senior Tour and hosted the PGA Inaugural Seniors Tournament in 1980 won by Don January. It has also been the site of several other major events, including the 1901 USGA Amateur and the USGA Women’s Opens in 1948, 1965, and 1975 – won by “Babe” Zaharias, Carol Mann, and Sandra Palmer.
Admission to the tournament is FREE to Arett customers. Prizes are awarded for closest-to-the-pin, hole-in-one, tee-busters, and more! Open House attendees can register for the tournament at the same time they register for the Open House. To register online, visit ArettOpenHouse.com.
