“We invite players of all levels to join us for a thrilling event designed to enrich our youth and educational community by providing financial assistance to families in need,” said Scott Ehrlich, executive director of the David Posnack JCC. “Last year, our inaugural tournament saw more than 200 players and raised $28,150. This year, our goal is to exceed that number.”
