Press release from The Curchin Group
The accounting firm The Curchin Group has announced that they are now accepting essay submissions to determine the nonprofit beneficiaries of the 12th Annual Curchin Open, a nine-hole indoor miniature golf tournament.
Faithful 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.
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.
