Thank You to Our 2014 Golf Outing Attendees

The Kean University Foundation held its annual “Cougar Cup” golf outing fundraiser on Monday, September 22 at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster Township, N.J. The event was attended by 140 guests, including 116 golfers, who collectively achieved over $124,000 in gifts and commitments that will directly benefit the students of Kean University through scholarships and other academic initiatives and programs.

Golf Outing Photos Are Now Available for Viewing! Visit our Foundation News page. Photos are also posted on the Foundation's Facebook page at 

Did you forget to pick up your foursome photo? A lot of keepsake framed foursome photos went unclaimed after the event. If you would like to find out whether yours is still available, contact us at
