MKA Celebrates the Return of the Golf Classic

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky at Mountain Ridge Country Club as MKA community members gathered together for the MKA Golf Classic on October 18. It was a perfect day for golf and a wonderful way to welcome Naveen Ballem, M.D. F.A.C.S. ’90, P’26,’30 as Montclair Kimberley Academy’s new President of the Board of Trustees. Every subset of MKA's family was represented including Current Parents, Alumni, Parents of Alumni, Grandparents, Faculty, and Trustees. Events like these are so important because they build community and allow us to raise critical funds to support our incredible school. It was a day and night filled with endless laughs, connections made, contests, and fantastic food and drink.

A special shout out to our generous sponsors for making the event possible:

  • Event Sponsors – Benner’s Auto Body, Bellapianta Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, and Clara Maass Medical Center, an RWJ-Barnabas facility.
  • Hole Sponsors – The Becker Org, Cushman and Wakefield, The Lane Team, The Ballem Family, The Szilagyi Family, Platt Psychiatric Associates, KMPG Women’s PGA, and Yanina and Co.
  • Faculty Sponsors – The Salzman Family and Craig Marshall

We hope to see you at next year’s Golf Classic with even more offerings, but until then, here are some photos from this year’s event.

Longtime friends from the Class of 1990 (L-R): David Becker, Lloyd Godwin, Naveen Ballem, and Marty Torjussen.
