USJC and the Japanese American Association of New York, Inc. were beneficiaries of a charity golf tournament held on May 19. Over 50 people attended the tournament held at the Montclair Golf Club in West Orange, New Jersey, one of the premier golf clubs in the Northeast. Attendees enjoyed refreshing ITO EN beverages during the event, which raised funds and awareness for the two hosting organizations.
