And as always, the 10th annual edition of the Curchin Open, held earlier this month, was also highly beneficial for two charities — in this case, Lunch Break and Monmouth Day Care Center, both of Red Bank, which will share in the record $16,500 raised from attendees.

Curchin 2Just another day at the office? For the tenth consecutive year, the certified public accounting firm Curchin Group transforms its Schultz Drive office suite into a nine-hole miniature golf course, as the “Curchin Open” raises funds for two worthy Red Bank-based nonprofits on November 10.

Press release from The Curchin Group

The Curchin Group, LLC, a mid-sized, full-service accounting firm, announced that on Tuesday, November 10th from 4 to 7 pm it will be hosting its 10th Annual Curchin Open, an indoor miniature golf tournament for charity.

LINCROFT: A ‘MASTERS’ IN ACCOUNTING

curchin 1Remember to replace your debits: The eighth annual Curchin Open brings nine holes of competitive mini-golf to the offices of CPA firm Curchin Group. (click to enlarge)

Accepted wisdom has it that accountants, like so many other creatures of the cubicle, tend to “let their hair down” in a major way during the holiday office party season. At one long-established firm on the greater Red Bank green, the first week of November sees the Lincroft headquarters of  the Curchin Group  become a scene that surpasses even the wackiest theme ever cooked up by the Dunder Mifflin Party Committee — all in the spirit of fun, and all for a couple of great causes.

Scheduled for the hours of 4 to 7 pm Wednesday, November 6, the eighth annual Curchin Open transforms the Schultz Drive office suite into a nine-hole miniature golf course, complete with greens, hazards and accounting-themed novelty obstacles. Foursome teams of registered participants will take to the links, beneath the drop ceilings and fluorescent lights, to raise money for two locally based nonprofit organizations — Family & Children’s Service of Long Branch, and the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore.

DONE GOOD: TURKEY-TIME POTS AND TROTS

Done2A great American (Patrick Henry? Paul Bunyan? Leo Gorcey?) once observed, “They also Done Good, who stand and wait.” And as most of us wait here in the all-clear zone between the chaos of Halloweelection Day and the holiday hyperdrive heralded by Black Friday, we remind you that November continues to offer more than a few ways in which to Do Good.

It could be as easy as contributing a couple of bucks or some nonperishable items to any of the many food banks that operate year-round on the greater Red Bank green. A donation to an area toy drive. Or a helping hand for your neighborhood school, church and youth organization to help others, simply by attending (and having a blast at) one of the fun events scheduled for the days and weeks to come.

We’ve got a few recommendations right around the corner, so pass the candied yams and dig on in.

A HEAPING HARVEST OF GOOD DEEDS

roseharrystevenshoganClockwise from top left: Village People chief Felipe Rose, Blondie bombshell Debbie Harry, funk bassmaster TM Stevens and  actress Siobhan Fallon Hogan are the honorees at the Monmouth County Arts Council’s annual Celebration of Excellence on October 29.

There’s a school Halloween party in which the parents are the ones who get to dress up and have all the fun. A gala affair in which the solid-citizen guests of honor are, to put it mildly, NOT the usual old rich guys with their checkbooks. And a hot-ticket sporting event that not only takes place indoors — it barely loses sight of the office water cooler.

Done1Just because something’s Done Good by the community doesn’t mean it has to be done by the stodgy playbook of gowns, tuxes, and hundred-dollar plates of cordon bleu balanced on bony laps. Here in the season of merry mischief, we’re pleased to bring you a roundup of do-gooder public events with an ever so slightly playful bent — a list that begins this Friday, and continues on into the next few eek-ends.

FRIDAY: Oktoberfest at Ye Olde Allen House. The old Allen place, that historic (circa 1710) house on the corner of Broad Street and Sycamore Avenue in Shrewsbury, becomes a Publick House for one night only, in a benefit for  The Monmouth County Historical Association that offers an evening of “beer tasting and tavern fare” in the spirit of the season. Reserve tickets ($50) at (732)462-1466.

WARNING: SCORECARDS MAY BE AUDITED

Pity the poor Certified Public Accountant. Wonkishly dull, they say. Obsessed with arcana. Underdeveloped sense of humor.

And whatever you do, don’t mess with a CPA’s workspace, because everything is exactly where it belongs.

Yeah, well, the folks at the accounting firm Curchin Group LLC hope to take a divot out of the stereotype next week.

Next Thursday, Sept. 21, they’ll put their green eyeshades to new use when they host what they’re calling the first annual Curchin Open, an indoor miniature golf tournament for charity.

That’s right, indoors. In their offices. With holes laid out to look like dollar signs and calculators stuck between the desks. Not to mention the best amenities of a clubhouse. Namely, food and booze.
