The 2nd Annual Simon Family JCC Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament was a success with nearly 100 golfers playing under sunny skies at Heron Ridge Golf Club in Virginia Beach.

Through the generous support of sponsors, $60,000 was raised at the event on Monday, June 11. The dollars raised through the Presidents’ Cup Tournament support programs that help improve the lives of thousands of people in the Tidewater community. The JCC provides special services through before and after school care, summer day camp, the Norfolk Emergency Shelter Team (NEST), youth sports and swim classes, exercise classes to women recovering from breast cancer and older adults. Membership scholarships are made available to individuals and families in need.
