Hough Petroleum Announces Details for 2nd Annual Charity Golf Outing in September 2019
EWING, N.J. – Hough Petroleum is excited to announce its 2nd Annual Charity Golf Outing will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the Mountain View Golf Course in Ewing, NJ. This golf outing will help raise money for two fantastic causes that best align with Hough Petroleum’s core values, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the George E. Abel ’78 Memorial Scholarship. Last year, in Hough’s first ever charity golf outing, we were able to raise over $15,000 with tremendous support from our sponsors, golfers, and participants, and look forward to raising even more this year for our two charities.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is an organization committed to accelerating treatments and cures for muscle-debilitating diseases and helping kids and adults live longer and grow stronger. Through nationwide events in hometowns across America, donors and partners and the new Live Unlimited movement helps create a world where families are free from the harm of these devastating diseases.
Hough Petroleum established the George E. Abel ‘78 Memorial Scholarship in partnership with Rider University in 2018 to honor George and his legacy. Hough developed this scholarship in his honor to assist college athletes at Rider by providing financial support in order to help them achieve their educational aspirations. George was passionate about sports, and spent many years playing, coaching, and refereeing various sports and inspired so many people throughout his life both at work and in his personal life. With the success of Hough’s first outing last year, we are excited to announce that we will be able to endow the George E. Abel Scholarship! The inaugural recipient, Aaron Robinson, exemplified all the qualities of George, what his scholarship represents, and we’re excited to award our 2nd recipient in September!
