Providing financial assistance to those in pursuit of a medical education
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 $100,000 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. Last year we enjoyed our evening inside 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.
With such a great response, we are now planning our 5th annual Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest. This again will be held outside at The Deck of the Golden Nugget, Thursday, September 3, 2020.
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 www.funkymonk.net. We look forward to seeing you at The Deck on Thursday, September 3, 2020.

What a success!
Our Summer Fundraiser benefiting the Scott E. Monk, D.O. Scholarship Fund providing financial assistance to those in pursuit of a medical education was a fantastic time with fantastic people. The entire Monk Family & the Funky Monk Team, wants to thank you very much for showing up and making the evening memorable. Also, thank you for everybody who made a contribution and purchased raffle tickets. We also want to send out a huge “thank you” to all our sponsors. You made this thing happen.
All proceeds from the night went towards the Scott E. Monk Scholarship to support students seeking to study medicine!
