The Mahwah Regional Chamber of Commerce will be honoring Thomas M. Eastwick, President and Founder Eastwick College, as The Humanitarian of the Year at the Chamber’s 23rd Annual Golf Outing & Humanitarian Dinner, happening Monday, September 22, at our member golf club, Ramsey Country Club.
A community philanthropist, with 38 years of experience in education, Thomas M. Eastwick has a proven record heading some of the most successful colleges in the industry. President Eastwick is the Governor of the Private College and School Association and a founding board member of the Bergen Workforce Investment Board. He also serves on the Essex Workforce Investment Board, the Board of Trustees for Palisades Medical Center, the Foundation of Bergen Regional Medical Center, the New Jersey President’s Council, and the Board of Directors for the Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Eastwick has chosen The Eastwick College Foundation to be the recipient of this year’s charitable contribution.
The Chamber is welcoming both veterans and first-timers to the annual golf event. It's an opportunity to showcase businesses, enjoy the daytime activities, and have cocktails at the Abbey and dinner in the grand ballroom.
“We are just getting started so there are many ways for members and nonmembers to get involved: buy a sponsorship, play golf, attend the dinner, donate prizes, advertise in our journal and/or volunteer,” encourages Deborah Richin, VP Golf.
“This year there are also golf clinics available for those who want to brush up on their games or learn to play.”
Participating in this high impact event is one way you can make a meaningful contribution to the Chamber and to the Community.
“This will be a sold out event so be sure to register early," she said.
Eastwick Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps ease the cost of a college education by offering individuals partial to full scholarships through donations from corporations and individuals. A donor can specify what type of training a scholarship will go towards, e.g. nursing, welding, or any career-specific degree or diploma.
They also support local non-profit organizations that assist students by providing contributions and/or involvement for their activities. In addition, specific donations can be made to their not-for-profit preschool in Negril, Jamaica that assists families in need with their children's preparation before entering elementary school through their affiliated Good JuJu Project.
Eastwick Education or Thomas M. Eastwick matches all donations.
