Play a Little for Pink Continues through August 21.
Our Northern New Jersey Chapter continues to support Play for Pink events that benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.playforpink.org).
Thank you to those who joined us at the Preakness Valley Golf Course on August 7 and those who have sponsored their own league events. Continue to Play a Little Pink between now and August 21st. Select a date to wear pink, celebrate the day with purpose, conduct friendly games and solicit contributions. It may be a suggested amount, or in the form of a mini tricky tray or decorate your cart competition. Invite your course to donate a round or two as prizes or giveaways.
All donations support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You might also encourage donations from families and friends. Donation links are live on the Chapter Facebook Page through August 21.
Please share this information with members and friends.
Mark your calendars and do it your way!!

Member Referral Awards Program
Did you know that over 60% of our new members come to us via member referral? Needless to say, referrals are important in helping our chapter thrive. In recognition of these efforts, we have announced a new member referral awards program.
For the 2022 season, when a new member joins and identifies a Northern New Jersey member as having referred them, the referring member’s name will be added to a raffle. The winners will be drawn at the Season Closer. There will be a $25 raffle for those who refer 1-2 new members and a $50 raffle for those who refer 3 or more.
In order to qualify, the new member must identify, at the time of registration, who has referred them. You will be notified by email when we receive a new member referral under your name.
Thank you for promoting our world-class golf organization. Please contact our Membership Recruitment Director, Pat Bringewatt, if you have any questions.
Member Benefit - Visiting Chapters While TravelingOne of the unique benefits of being a member of LPGA Amateurs is visiting other Chapters while traveling and having the opportunity to meet other members and maybe even play golf! The easiest option to connect with other Chapters is to email the President of the Chapter and let them know your schedule - their contact information should be in the "About" section or in the Contact tab/form on the Chapter Website. You can also check the Chapter event calendar to see if there is an event that coincides with your travel plans. Cheers to making new friends!
The Chapter held its first Annual Meeting via zoom on April 26th, 2022. Thirty-one members attended and you can find the recording of the session here: 2022 Annual Meeting Zoom Video
