*16th Annual Ferry Brother’s Memorial Golf Outing
Sunday, March 19, 2023
In Loving Memory of Harry, Franny, and Jim E. Ferry Sr.
We are writing to you regarding our upcoming golf outing. This year will be our 16th annual tournament and because of the generosity of businesses like yours, it has continued to grow and thrive.
We started this outing in memory of Jim E. Ferry Sr., who passed away in 2006 after a short battle with cancer. Jim was born and raised in Gloucester City and was an active part of his community. He loved Gloucester City with every ounce of his being and whatever he did was with consideration of the city and the people in it. He was a generous man who made a difference. This event is not only a way to honor his legacy, but to do exactly what he did and help make a difference.
Jim and his brothers Harry and Franny were cut from the same cloth. Each of them was incredibly generous and devoted to the community. Sadly, each of them also lost their own battles with cancer. Jim, Harry, and Franny were legends in their own time, and they will never be forgotten. This event is in honor of them. It ensures that their enduring legacy of generosity, service, and positive impact will continue to make a difference for generations to come.
As an active member of the Gloucester City Small Business Association, Jim knew how important it was for businesses to come together to make a difference. With your help, we can continue making positive changes. With that in mind we are once again asking for businesses to sponsor a hole. The cost is $100 for Silver, $200 for Gold, $400 for Promotional bag sponsorship, $500 for Platinum, $1000 for Diamond, and $1500 for Corporate Sponsorship. Descriptions can be found in the attached letter. In addition to sponsorship, we are also in need of prizes, baskets, gift cards, and giveaway items for the banquet that is to be held after the tournament. Not only will this benefit those in attendance, but it is also a great way to get your business noticed.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Gloucester City and West Deptford K9 units as well as other local organizations.
The 16th Annual Ferry Brother’s Memorial Golf Outing will be held on Friday, April 28, 2023, at 9 am at the Riverwinds Golf Club, 270 Eagle Point Road, West Deptford, NJ 08086.
The cost for golfing is $175.00, which includes lunch at the course, a golf cart, green fees, prizes, and the banquet at Elizabeth's Ballroom, 419 Highland Blvd. in Gloucester City.
The banquet includes an open bar and food from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
If you would like to sponsor a hole, please send your business card, along with a check in the appropriate amount. Likewise, if you would like to golf, please include your golfing fee. Be sure to specify what your check is for.
Checks should be made payable to the Jim E. Ferry Sr. Foundation and mailed to the foundation at P.O. Box 526, Gloucester City NJ 08030. If you would like to donate a gift certificate or other prize, you can mail it to the address above.
