Oak Ridge, N.J. – October 6, 2021 – Lakeland Bank is pleased to announce that $200,000 was raised at the Bank’s 2021 Annual Scholarship Golf Outing held September 28 at Crystal Springs Resort. Scholarships will be presented in 2022 to local students pursuing a higher education.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support and generosity of our associates, customers and business partners who all contribute to make this event a great success,” said Thomas Shara, President and CEO of Lakeland Bank. “After the challenges we faced to host a golf outing in 2020, we were excited that so many of our supporters returned to join us at this year’s outing and that we exceeded our goal by raising $200,000 to support local students.”
Lakeland Bank’s goal was to raise $175,000, but due to the generosity of its supporters, the Bank exceeded its goal and raised $200,000. The 2021 Exclusive Tournament Sponsor was Inserra Supermarket which owns and operates 23 ShopRite and two PriceRite Marketplace stores located in Bergen, Hudson and Passaic Counties in New Jersey and in Rockland County, New York. Lakeland Bank representatives will present scholarships in 2022 to students from both public and private schools in the communities Lakeland Bank serves.
