2021 Golf Classic



Your support of our annual golf fundraiser goes toward improving the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) by providing…

  • Advocacy support
  • Educational services
  • Community support
  • Residential and independent living options
  • Recreational options
  • Day programs
  • And much more!

Why It Matters...

There are many individuals and families affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities. All too often the families don’t know where to turn when they need help. Families need a variety of services to support their loved ones. And those with I/DD deserve to feel like they are part of a community. They need to know that their lives matter and that they can learn new skills, enjoy higher education, experience independence, and live life to the fullest.

This is The Arc of Monmouth’s mission. And when you join our efforts, you become a hero to use that these families.

We Get It...

We understand what these families go through, having no support and nowhere to turn. The Arc was established by a group of parents who joined together to provide necessary services for their children. As a result, countless lives have changed. And we want to keep the momentum going, giving opportunities to individuals and impacting the world in a positive way.

As you can imagine, this past year has been particularly difficult. During the pandemic, The Arc of Monmouth continued to provide 24/7 care to the residents we serve in our group homes and supervised apartments throughout Monmouth County. While our resources are all focused on minimizing the current threat, much of our normal funding is not coming in. Any amount you can provide will greatly impact the lives and future for those with I/DD. We are extremely grateful for your generosity and desire to make a difference.

Your Support Serves People with I/DD

This annual golf fundraiser brings in vital funds to support our many programs and services for individuals with I/DD.

Without the sustained support of donors and volunteers like you, those with I/DD and their families don’t get the appropriate care, training, programs, and education they need to live life to the fullest. Your support and partnership matters—from helping to grow our group homes and independent apartments to providing vocational and recreational opportunities.  

Through this unique golf fundraiser, you are giving others an opportunity to grow in the following areas…

  • Education
  • Life skills training
  • Recreation
  • Health services
  • Vocational training
  • College program at Brookdale
  • And more...

Thanks to generous financial supporters like you, individuals with I/DD can experience what it's like to be a part of a community, growing and learning new skills that equip them for their future. Finally, families have a place to turn and can feel confident their loved ones are set up for success.

Honoring Our Community Heroes

Join us as we honor two county leaders who embody the spirit of public service that inspires everyone involved with The Arc of Monmouth. We are grateful for the dedicated leadership of Sheriff Shaun Golden and County Board of Commissioners Director Thomas A. Arnone for promoting initiatives that ensure the safety and inclusion of people with I/DD in our community. We also thank them for their efforts to combat the pandemic.

Both Sheriff Golden and Director Arnone have been instrumental in working with local government agencies and non-profits to coordinate initiatives like the Monmouth County Special Needs Registry, Project Lifesaver, and the Growth Through Opportunity program.

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden

Sheriff Shaun Golden has served as the 76th Sheriff of Monmouth County since 2010 and during his tenure has championed innovative programs and partnerships targeting youth safety.

The lifelong Monmouth County resident has served the public in law enforcement for 25 years. As undersheriff, he was responsible for the Monmouth County 9-1-1 Communications Center.

He then served as a police officer with the Colts Neck Police Department and the Toms River Police Department. He also worked as a certified paramedic, an EMT, and a volunteer firefighter.

Under his leadership, the Sheriff’s Office offers more than 30 community safety programs. Many of them directly impact the lives of Monmouth County’s most vulnerable people, including children and young adults, such as the Citizens Police Academy, Child ID & Senior ID Program, Students Professional Awareness, and Bicycle Safety.

Coming Back Strong After COVID-19

At The Arc of Monmouth, we know you’re looking forward to getting outside after what seems like a lifetime of social distancing to battle COVID-19. Fortunately, the Golf Classic 2021 is back stronger than ever after we had to suspend last year’s event out of concern for the health of all. This year, thanks to the progress with the vaccination program and a better understanding of how the virus spreads, we can safely hold the event for players, sponsors, and volunteers.

Your generous support allows The Arc of Monmouth to do its work of empowering people with I/DD to live full, meaningful lives and to engage with their community.

Join us in this mission as a sponsor or a player and make a meaningful impact on those with I/DD!
