6th Annual
HVYMCA
Tom Jackson Champion
Golf & Tennis Tournament

 

Thank you to our golfers, tennis players, sponsors, and donors, for supporting the 6th Annual HVYMCA Tom Jackson Champion Golf & Tennis Tournament. A little wind, rain, and lightning couldn’t stop you from making this year’s event a success. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s event.

 

 

 

The Tom Jackson Golf Tournament is held in honor of Thomas R. Jackson, a long time Pennington resident and dedicated sports enthusiast. During these trying times, our YMCA operates a food pantry, emergency childcare, summer camp, and will run wrap-around childcare in coordination with our local school district in support of working families.

Kids need us now more than ever! As we begin the safe return to youth sports, let us make sure that family finances don’t prevent any child from participating. Back for its sixth year, the Hopewell Valley YMCA Tom Jackson Champion Golf and Tennis Tournament will be returning to the Trenton Country Club this fall to benefit Hopewell Valley youth. Join the YMCA in celebrating Tom and making a positive impact on the Hopewell Valley community.
