A Golf Outing to Remember

A Golf Outing to Remember 2015 JCC Golf and Tennis Classic

2015 Golf and Tennis Classic

Everything was running along so smoothly leading up to our 2015 JCC Golf and Tennis Classic. Even with temperatures scorching at a record breaking 94 degrees, we still had a great turnout with some of the toughest golfers and tennis players around. With a successful day out on the course our guests were ready for a fun, relaxing dinner back at the Richmond County Country Club’s (RCCC) banquet hall.

Let’s not forget our hard playing tennis champs.

And then the BLACKOUT!

A power outage was unexpected, but understandable considering the heat wave that struck the city. Power was out, but our JCC team was not down.

“We may not have put our blood into this event, but we certainly put our sweat, and maybe, some tears into it.   We made lemonade out of lemons and showed that it takes more than a blackout to stop the J staff from putting on a great show.”

These were Executive Director David Sorkin’s words as well as Frank Oswald’s, one of our honorees.

Organizing and holding an event like this takes a lot of resources and planning by a dedicated staff and committee. Memorable events don’t just happen.

Here are 5 tips for producing a memorable event:

  1. Attitude is contagious.  Your guests in large part will play off your attitude and dynamics during the event. Lead by example and have a good time.
  2. Let crowd reaction be your barometer.  Read the audience during the event. Ask people how they are doing. If things are going great, you’ll know.
  3. Be prepared for the unexpected. Maybe the sound system fails. Maybe your keynote presenter bails. Cope, improvise and move on.
  4. Be ready to lend a hand to fill any gaps. Although planning ahead is a great formula for success, it is never enough. Something unexpected always comes up. Expect to put in a little extra elbow grease for extenuating circumstances. This applies to catering arrangements, printing requirements, guest accommodations, weather forecasts, entertainment and more.
  5. Surround yourself with the best.  No matter the size of your event, always try to delegate responsibilities to your top team members. Having one person in charge of every detail typically doesn’t work out well. Whenever possible, let people take control of the areas they most enjoy.

A BIG THANKS to our fantastic staff, board, committee, sponsors and, of course, our understanding attendees. We gratefully acknowledge those who to date have made a commitment to support this event which raises money to provide Nursery School and Camp Scholarships to needy children in our community.

Congratulations to all of our honorees
