  • Holiday Party '22 & Fundraiser Event

    Over 60 members celebrated our end-of-year event at Deal Country Club. It was great to reconnect with our golf friends and to see everyone shine in their non-golf outfits. Members received V.I.P. (Vitally Important Participants) gifts of golf bag charms said to bring good fortune on the course. Members also had their V.I.P. points converted to credit dollars applicable to reduce future Coastal expenditures such as membership renewal dues or golf event costs. You can earn V.I.P points by participating in our chapter events, joining chapter leagues or volunteering on committees or at our events.  You can start earning 2023 V.I.P points by renewing your Coastal membership.

    Our selected fund raiser was Mary's Place By The Sea which provides support services to heal the mind, body and soul of women with cancer in treatment and in remission.
