SOMERSET, N.J., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As a life-long resident of New Jersey, Jim Bistis, President and CEO of Core Services Corporation, feels passionately about helping to preserve the beauty of his home state. And so it was that on September 21st, Jim and his team were happy to raise funds for The Land Conservancy of New Jersey ("The Conservancy") by playing in the 2nd Annual Gray Cup Invitational Golf Classic. What made a beautiful day even better was their impressive tournament win!
"I love New Jersey, having grown up here and now head-quartering my company here," explains Bistis. "I am a great admirer of The Conservancy which preserves land and water resources, conserves open space, and inspires and empowers individuals and communities to protect our natural land and environment." Bistis continues, "As a New Jersey resident and business leader, I seek opportunities to help organizations that are making positive contributions to this great state. The Conservancy is just such an organization. Having preserved over 17,100 acres and assisted towns in securing more than $200 million in county, state, and federal grants for their land conservation projects, The Conservancy has helped ensure that New Jersey is able to host amazing outdoor events like the Gray Cup, and multiple national PGA events that showcase some of the most stunning settings in the country."
The 2nd Annual Gray Cup Invitational Golf Classic is named to honor C. Graydon Rogers for his many years of outstanding service to The Conservancy. Gray served for ten years on The Conservancy's Board of Trustees, including three years as Chairman. Under his stewardship and tireless leadership, The Conservancy grew from a regional land trust to a state leader in open space preservation.
Bistis concludes, "My team came out to have a great day at Ballyowen Golf Club at Crystal Springs Resort for a great cause. Both The Conservancy and my golf team came away as winners. We look forward to future events and continuing our support of The Conservancy."
