Raritan Valley Community College student Samantha Naulty was one of the scholarship recipients who benefited from funds raised at the 30th Annual Steven A. Cox Charity Classic, held October 7 at New Jersey National Golf Club in Basking Ridge. Naulty, a resident of Hillsborough, is pursuing an Associate Degree in Biology at RVCC.

“I am honored to receive the support of the Steven A. Cox Foundation,” said Naulty, who plans to graduate in December. “RVCC has expanded my knowledge and experience, and has prepared me for the next steps in my aspiring career in ecology. Getting this affirmation from the Steven A. Cox Foundation means so much to me.”

One-hundred-twenty-eight golfers turned out for the 30th Annual Steven A. Cox Charity Classic. The event, which has raised some $6.7 million over three decades, added another $65,000 in support of student scholarships, cancer research, and educational programming. In addition to RVCC, the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and the Val Skinner Foundation received support from the charity event, including four student scholarship recipients at Rutgers University and Raritan Valley Community College, via Steven A. Cox Scientific Research Scholarships.

Mr. Henry Cox, WW II Purple Heart awardee and Chairman Emeritus of the Steven A. Cox Foundation—the host organization of the event—provided the ceremonial toast to the tournament's namesake. The tourney is named for Mr. Cox’s son, Steven, a former AT&T manager who died from Osteosarcoma in 1991 at the age of 32.

RVCC is located at 118 Lamington Road in Branchburg, NJ. For further information, visit www.raritanval.edu.
