On Monday, September 23, Meridian sent a foursome to play in the 35th Annual Teterboro Airport Community Benefit Fund Scholarship Golf Classic, held at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe, NJ.

The proceeds from the event go to the Teterboro Airport Community Benefit Fund, which contributes to several scholarships in aviation. Overall, the event generates about $12,000 a year for local high school graduates.

Meridian continued its support this year by sponsoring the 4th hole on the Banks course. The historic Banks Course was designed by Charles H. Banks, one of America’s celebrated “Golden Age” architects.

While our team didn’t take a place on the podium this year, we had a great time playing and participating in the festivities. Meridian is proud to show our continued support of the event and of our Teterboro community.

On Friday, September 12, 2014, Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport, proudly supported the 30th Annual Teterboro Airport Scholarship Golf Classic, which was held at Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, NJ. The golf tournament raises funds for the Teterboro Airport Community Benefit Fund, which last year created scholarships totaling $15,000 for local high schools. Due to the overwhelming success and generosity of businesses both on and off the airport, the Teterboro Airport Scholarship Golf Classic has permitted the Teterboro Airport community to award 190 scholarships to local high school graduates aspiring to pursue higher education in aviation or related fields of study.

Meridian sent a team of three, including Mike Moore, Anthony Banome, and Kirk Stephen. A fourth member from the Port Authority joined the team just before the shotgun start, but unfortunately the final team score was not worth reporting here. However, the weather was perfect, the lunch was delicious, and the day was dedicated to a great cause. Meridian is looking forward to the next Teterboro Airport event, which will be the annual New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame Induction Dinner, to be held on Tuesday, October 7 at the Fiesta Ballroom in Wood Ridge, NJ.
