Zoned Sports Academy, located in Bridgewater, NJ hosted its 2nd Annual Scholarship Scramble at New Jersey National Golf Club on Monday, October 19th. For the second straight year, Zoned held this event to raise money for its Zoned Scholarship Program. The scholarship program is put in place to help assist college bound baseball and softball players with college expenses (books, meal plan, room & board). It has been in place for the last 9 years, and each year Zoned has awarded $10,000.00 divided up among 6 deserving athletes.
With the help and support from the golf outing, Zoned has been able to expand this scholarship program over the last 2 years. Zoned now offers a Redhawk Scholarship to student-athletes that need assistance with team fees, travel expenses or entrance fees to members of its travel baseball program which ranges from 8U to 17U. Zoned also helps with underfunded little league programs and renovations for local baseball fields.
Zoned is excited to announce that this year's golf outing was able to raise $14,600, doubling its total amount raised from the first year ($7,137)! It was once again a great day and for the second straight year, a sold out event! 72 golfers came out to play, with a countless number of dinner guests to help out a great cause. Prizes such as the "Tee-To-Green Challenge", and the "Golden Circle" were just some of the many events held on the course.
Previous recipients of the award were in attendance as well, brothers Steve & Mike Nikorak. Steve, a recipient of the Scholarship Award in 2007 was thrilled to see the outreach of support: "My family and I know firsthand how much the scholarship can make a difference, and I'm really happy to see everyone chipping in to make a difference on future generations of our sport." His younger brother, Mike, was a Redhawk Scholarship recipient in 2013 and earlier this year was the 7th overall selection in the 1st round of the MLB Draft to the Colorado Rockies.
Zoned Sports Academy would like to thank everyone for their help and support in making the 2nd Annual Scholarship Scramble such a success. Without the help of the sponsors, donors, workers and golfers none of this would have been possible. To the people who made gift baskets, donated silent auction items, volunteers and the staff at New Jersey National golf club, we would like to say thank you for helping us give our student-athletes an opportunity to further their career! We look forward to seeing you all next year!
