Some young arms will be swinging clubs at the Simon Family JCC’s 5th Annual Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament.

Eric and Bill Miller, along with Evan Levitt, JCC development director, have recruited players who are under 35 years old to participate this year.

Eric Miller has worked actively on this year’s golf committee because he says it follows a family tradition of giving. “Our family has been involved since we were little kids. I’ve learned through my parents (Laura and Jerry) that giving back is important if you are able to do so.”

His brother Bill says that they were “encouraged to be a part of this community, so giving back through golf makes perfect sense.”

The golf tournament, which supports children’s programming at the JCC, is exactly the kind of cause the Miller brothers want to support. “If we’re trying to perpetuate the tournament to the next generation, and the tournament allows more kids to benefit from all that the JCC has to offer them, it’s a perfect fit,” says Bill.

The 5th Annual JCC Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament is still accepting players. The cost is $180 per person. For more information, contact Evan Levitt at 321‑2337.
