Hedge Funds Care will hold its 3rd Annual East Coast Golf Tournament on July 19 to raise money for programs that prevent and treat child abuse.

Hedge Funds Care will hold its 3rd Annual East Coast Golf Tournament on July 19 to raise money for programs in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut that prevent and treat child abuse.

The event will take place at the Greenwich Country Club in Greenwich, Conn., a new location for the tournament, which has previously been held at the Echo Lake Country Club in Westfield, NJ. Mercedes-Benz is sponsoring a "hole in one" contest offering golfers a chance to win a new Mercedes C300 sports sedan. Other sponsors include the Dailey Family Foundation, HedgeServ and Prime Fund Solutions.

A luncheon will be held for all guests followed by an afternoon on the green. There are 28 foursomes that can participate in the shotgun scramble-style golf, which means all teams will start at the same time on different holes and players will decide at each hole who had the best first shot and the rest of the team will play on from that shot. Throughout the day contests will be held for the best straight drive, long distance drive and shot closest to the pin.

The event is already half-full, but Hedge Funds Care is still looking for golfers and sponsors. Those that can’t break away from the office during the day can attend the celebratory cocktail party at the close or make a donation in lieu of attendance.

The Annual East Coast Golf Tournament has raised over $100,000 each year. Since its inception in 1998, Hedge Funds Care has awarded more than 600 grants totaling $21 million.
