Hope Sheds Light and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County will receive all proceeds from the event, scheduled for Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., Curchin announced.

The Curchin Open transforms spaces between cubicles in the full-service CPA’s office into a nine-hole miniature golf course where clients, sponsors and friends play a round, eat, drink and mingle for an afternoon.

Since its inception in 2006, the Curchin Open has raised more than $194,500 for more than two dozen charities.
