 Dear Friend,

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. His great passion besides 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, the scholarship has awarded more than $150,000 to many outstanding recipients 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. Each year we enjoy a fantastic evening complete with an optional back bay fishing trip, delicious food, great prizes, live music, etc. held at a beautiful outside venue overlooking the Farley Marina….. at The Deck of the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City. The most recent event in 2021 was moved inside to the beautiful Grand Ballroom, safe and dry from the strong thunderstorms that blew in suddenly. We had a great turnout and lots of fun celebrating friendships old and new while supporting this great cause.

Thanks to the generosity of you, our friends, these events over the past four years have raised over $75,000 for the Scott E. Monk, DO Scholarship. All proceeds raised help defray the cost of a medical education to the employees/dependents of AtlantiCare and Atlantic City-based Acuity families.

We are now planning our 6th annual Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest. This again will be held outside at  the Golden Nugget, Wednesday, June 29, 2022. However, the Grand Ballroom has been reserved  in the event of inclement weather.

Please join us as a sponsor, supporter and/or a participant in this wonderful celebration. Enjoy great food, an optional fishing trip, music, raffles, and fun, while honoring Scott, an exceptional Doctor, mentor, husband, father, and friend.

Thank you for your support and friendship. For more information, please visit our website at


We look forward to seeing you at The  Golden Nugget on Wednesday, June 29, 2022.

Warmest Regards,
