about scott monk


Dr Scott E. Monk was a brilliant Trauma and Critical Care Surgeon who began his career at Cooper Hospital and became the Medical Director at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. Scott’s great passion besides his family, friends, and exceptional patient care, was education.


With this in mind, several years ago our family established the Scott E. Monk, DO Scholarship Fund to help offset the skyrocketing costs of a medical education. Since 2009, we have awarded over $200,000 to many outstanding individuals who, with our assistance, were able to complete their education more quickly and graduate with less debt.


To celebrate Scott’s zest for life and honor his memory and many accomplishments in a unique and fun way, we created the Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest Fundraiser. Each year we enjoy a fantastic evening complete with an optional afternoon back bay fishing trip, delicious food, live music, raffles, auctions and more held at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. 100% of the proceeds raised help defray the cost of a medical education to the employees/dependents of AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center System. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, donors, and sponsors over the last 6 years, this event has raised over $150,000 for the Scott Monk Scholarship.


In the past we've had to move inside due to dangerous storms on the day of the event. So that we may avoid that difficult and complicated last-minute change, this year we have already reserved the Grand Ballroom for the Funky Monk on Wednesday, June, 26th , 2024. It’s a beautiful venue and perfect for our event.


Please join us as a sponsor, donor, supporter, or participant in this fun celebration.

Enjoy great food, music by the BStreet Band, raffles, silent auctions, & fishing while honoring Scott, an exceptional Doctor, mentor, husband, father, leader and friend. For more info about our event, pics of our past winners and events, please visit our website

Thank you for your support and friendship.


We look forward to seeing you at the Funky Monk on Wednesday, June, 26th , 2024


Warmest regards,
