Playing Hooky For A Good Cause

August 24, 2023

Gentlemen golfers congratulate one another

Growing up did you ever play hooky from school? We certainly did. Some of our most memorable experiences happened on those carefree days. As adults, we can forget how much fun it is to escape the day-to-day grind for some fun. But taking a day off work can provide numerous benefits for our overall well-being and productivity.

Here are the top 5 reasons why you might consider taking a day off:

  1. Rest and Recovery: Working continuously without breaks can lead to burnout and decreased productivity. Taking a day off allows you to recharge, both physically and mentally, ensuring you return to work with renewed energy.
  2. Enhanced Creativity & Productivity: Stepping away from your work routine can stimulate your creativity and problem-solving abilities leading to increased productivity in the long run.
  3. Work-Life Balance: Taking a day off contributes to maintaining a healthy work-life balance. It allows you to spend quality time with family and friends, pursue personal interests, and engage in activities that bring joy.
  4. Prevent Burnout: Burnout is a real concern in today’s fast-paced work environment. Taking time off can help prevent burnout, which can have serious negative effects on your mental and physical health.
  5. Increased Job Satisfaction: When you allow yourself breaks, you’re more likely to feel satisfied with your job. You’ll have a clearer perspective on your role and be more motivated to contribute effectively.

You know what is even better than a day off… a day off to help a good cause!!!! And attending a charity event that is both fun and helpful to the community is the perfect reason to skip work. So schedule your next day off for Monday, October 2, 2023 to attend Housing with Hope’s 3rd Annual Golf Tournament at the Basking Ridge Country Club!

The day will include a golf scramble, a delicious reception, and great opportunities to grow your professional network. Here are the top 5 reasons why attending our charity golf tournament is the perfect way to spend your day off work:

  1. Supporting a Good Cause: The primary purpose of our event is to raise funds to help support seniors in our community and make amazing strides in reducing the feeling of loneliness and isolation. By attending, you contribute directly to that cause.
  2. Enjoyment of Golf: If you’re a golf enthusiast or even someone who enjoys playing casually, our golf tournament offers you a chance to engage in the sport while also making a positive impact. It combines your love for golf with the opportunity to give back. Basking Ridge Country Club provides an unparalleled golfing experience.
  3. Social Interaction: This tournament offers a relaxed and enjoyable setting for socializing. You can spend time with friends, colleagues, or other participants in a less formal environment, fostering connections and building relationships.
  4. Community Engagement: Attending the golf tournament will help you feel more connected to your community. It shows that you’re invested in the well-being of the seniors in our area and are willing to actively contribute to their needs.
  5. Networking: Our golf tournament attracts a diverse group of participants, including business professionals, community leaders, and philanthropists. This environment provides you with valuable networking opportunities that could lead to personal, professional, or business connections down the line.

Last year we raised over $65,000 to help the seniors in our community thrive. Thanks to this generous support, we were able to provide engaging programs for seniors and extend our portfolio of low-income housing for the elderly.

New this year, we have added a “Sponsor a Senior” level of sponsorship where support from local businesses and organizations allows us to invite members of our Seniors Day Out group to golf with us at the event. We look forward to having our senior friends in attendance at our biggest fundraising event of the year. We understand that the decision to attend a charity golf tournament ultimately depends on your personal interests, values, and availability. If our goal to provide every opportunity possible for our aging family and friends to overcome financial barriers, create connections, and thrive resonates with you and you have the means to participate, we promise it will be a fulfilling and impactful experience.
