This year’s edition, held last Wednesday, generated $18,000 for two charities:  Mary’s Place by the Sea and the Monmouth County SPCA, which brought two rescues (including a pup named Coco, right) to the event.

curchin open 111015 1Faithful readers of redbankgreen know The Curchin Group as the accounting firm that hosts the annual tradition known as “The Curchin Open;” a nine-hole indoor miniature golf tournament that’s raised more than $136,900 for selected non-profit organizations since its inception in 2005. The firm is now accepting essay submissions to determine the beneficiaries of their 11th Annual Curchin Open, with recognized non-profit charities in Monmouth and Ocean Counties invited to enter by writing a 250-500 word essay detailing the mission of their organization, how the funds will be used for the greater good, and why their organization should be chosen as a beneficiary charity. Essays can be submitted now and will be accepted through Wednesday, June 1. The Curchin Group’s partners will select the beneficiaries by June 30, based on the quality of the essay, the reputation of the organization and the proposed use of Curchin Open proceeds. Eligible groups can go here for more details.

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. The tournament will take place indoors at Curchin’s office (200 Schultz Drive, Suite 400, in Lincroft), as the company will transform the space into a 9-hole, fun-filled miniature golf course, open to both experienced and beginner miniature golfers.

Each year, all proceeds from the events go to two locally based nonprofit organizations. This year, Curchin has selected Lunch Break, Inc. and Monmouth Day Care Center, both in Red Bank. The goal of Lunch Break is to alleviate hunger and lead those they serve to self-sufficiency and healthier lifestyles. Monmouth Day Care is dedicated to providing a safe, stimulating environment for families seeking quality childcare without regard to race, religion, ethnicity or economic status.

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.
