Borgata was pleased to be a “First Tee” sponsor of the 2020 Golf Fore Kids charity event on October 8, 2020. The annual golf outing fundraiser benefited the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City and took place at the Linwood Country Club. In addition to supporting the important event, Borgata’s Pastry Chef Tom Vaccaro and his team baked 150 big cookies which were placed at the tee for golfers to enjoy.
Borgata has been a long-time supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City, and is actively involved in the new MGM Resorts International Teen Center. The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City has been an extended home to many children and their families for over 45 years by providing a safe haven after school, homework help, and a healthy meal. The organization served over 1,500 children during the past year between the ages of 5 and 18.
The funds raised during the Golf Fore Kids event assisted the Club in providing a series of core programs, including education and career development, health and life skills, character and leadership training, sports and recreation, and the arts. All of the programs are designed to put participants on a path to college or a career. You can find out more about the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City here.
