Capital Grille of Paramus, NJ Raises $40,000 for Go4theGoal Pediatric Cancer Foundation Through Dinner and Golf Outing

CHERRY HILL, NJ --(Marketwired - October 14, 2013) - On September 9, 2013, the Capital Grille in Paramus, NJ hosted their 2nd Annual Capital Grille Golf Outing to benefit Go4theGoal Foundation.

96 golfers came out to enjoy the course at Hackensack Country Club. During a "Closest to the Pin" contest, the golfers used golf balls colored by pediatric cancer patients at Hackensack University Medical Center. The artists of the three balls that landed closest were awarded Flat Panel TVs. 

The golf contest was followed by a dinner and auction at The Capital Grille. The funds raised by this event, will support renovation of a teen room at Hackensack University Medical Center.

"It has been a privilege to work with Go4theGoal to significantly impact the quality of life for children with cancer right here where we live and work," said Dave Bryson, Managing Partner of The Capital Grille in Paramus, NJ. "Hosting the golf event is not only a great time for everyone involved, but rewarding to feel the growing connection with our clients and community."
