A fundraiser organized by Steve Hagen, of Off the Hook Restaurant Group, raised more than $2,000 for the Sussex Academy Seahawks coed golf team.
Hagen hosted a Dine and Donate fundraiser for the team Jan. 17 at Hooked Up in Millville, and members of Cripple Creek Golf Club and Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club made contributions. Spearheaded by Sussex Academy Golf Coach Michael Loftus, $2,300 was raised. The funds will support new uniforms for the team and an OptiShot indoor golf simulator.
“Knowing how supportive Steve is of the local community, I asked if he would help raise money for the golf team. He said yes, and then the public, friends and family rallied for our golfers. Thanks to everyone involved. The simulator will help to improve the athletes’ swings and soon they will look as good as they play the game in their new uniforms.” said Loftus.
