    Aug 22, 2016

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. (Aug. 22, 2016) – On behalf of the PHI Community Foundation, Atlantic City Electric will hold its 11th Annual Golf Classic Sept. 19 at Galloway National Golf Club in Galloway, N.J. All proceeds raised by the foundation will benefit this year’s Golf Classic recipients, Conserve Wildlife Foundation, Ranch Hope, Inc. and the Val Skinner Foundation-LIFE LPGA Pros in the Fight. 

    The LPGA’s Lorie Kane, Michelle McGann, Brooke Pancake and Val Skinner will participate in this year’s event. 

    Since its inception in 2006, the PHI Community Foundation’s Atlantic City Electric Golf Classic has raised nearly $1.3 million for nonprofit organizations in South Jersey. The PHI Community Foundation donates funds to organizations that help support the community in the areas of health, youth development, educational support and low income advocacy.

    Conserve Wildlife Foundation (CWF) works to protect rare and vulnerable wildlife in New Jersey and beyond. From bald eagles and bobcats to piping plovers and tiger salamanders, Conserve Wildlife has helped many wildlife species recover and/or fight off extinction. Its biologists utilize field science, habitat restoration, surveys, telemetry tracking, volunteer management and other innovative methods to stall species declines and start recoveries. Its team of educators informs students, scouts, corporate groups and civic associations on New Jersey’s diverse wildlife as well as volunteer opportunities. CWF is partnering with Atlantic City Electric to educate students, engage the public, and to help restore pollinator habitat and osprey nesting platforms in southern New Jersey.

    It offers a wide range of innovative, practical and effective courses and clinical services for students in grades 6 to12 who are experiencing adjustment, behavioral and/or personality challenges. In addition to a challenging academic program, Strang School offers a host of related services such as occupational therapy, industrial arts, health and family living. It’s through this array of educational and support services that students are introduced to job training and career exploration.

    The Val Skinner Foundation’s mission is to help eliminate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease while focusing on reaching younger women with information about the importance of early detection and healthy breast care practices. The Val Skinner Foundation, led by LPGA veteran and founder Val Skinner, co-conceptualized the young women's initiative with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Funding from the Atlantic City Electric Golf Classic will support the foundation’s “Young Women’s Initiative,” designed to educate young women on breast cancer awareness, risks and early detection.
