Last month, the Mahwah Schools Foundation hosted its annual Golf Outing. Each year, the event - which includes golfing, silent auctions, and a cocktail reception - raises money for MSF grants to Mahwah teachers, In the past, grants have been used to pay for equipment, trips, new technologies and other programs that the group says helps to enhance the learning experience in Mahwah schools.
According to organizers, 160 people who attended the event this year were able to raise $27,000 for Mahwah schools.
This year, the MSF chose Mahwah Police Chief James Batelli as the outing's honoree. The group cited his work with kids in the township, through programs like DARE, the junior police academy and Youth Leadership Academy as reasons for the choice.
