J.B. Foley memorial golf event creates a legacy for local Y kids

Participants in the J.B. Foley Memorial Golf Tournament

Since 2009 the Foley family has supported the future of our local youth in loving memory of J.B. Foley through the YMCA’s mission in Middlesex. With $75,013 raised to date, the Foley’s impact has given thousands of children the opportunity to thrive in our rural community through scholarships and programs.

As the Y’s reach expanded over the years, the Foley family made a commitment to ensure the success of the Y’s fundraising endeavor to bring a gym to the lower end of the county. Through their vision, the Foleys have given the Y the opportunity to give all children the ability to play, learn and grow, regardless of life circumstances.

“If you have the privilege to know Tom and Bea and their family, you immediately see humility and kindness in the way that they treat others. This continuing gift that honors J.B. comes from the purest place—that of sharing the strength, blessings and love they feel in their family with others. It is a privilege to know this family, and we are humbled that they choose to so deeply support other families in our small community. J.B.’s legacy will live on through countless lives nurtured at the Y,” said Rosabeth Ward, branch executive of the Middlesex Family YMCA. “Our YMCA is entering a new era in service. The Foleys’ dedication to helping others provides one of the lead gifts for the Middlesex Family YMCA Endowment. Focused on the future, we partner to ensure generations to come will have a better life in Middlesex County.”

The 2018 J.B. Foley Memorial Golf Tournament was held at the Piankatank River Golf Club on September 21-22  with 32 golfers participating, and raised $12,213 for the Y kids.
