Golfers raise $47,600 at Benedictine Charity Golf Tournament
Grey skies gave way to sunshine at the Country Club at Woodmore in Mitchellville, Md. as over 50 golfers participated in the 2nd Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Benedictine on June 4th.
The event raised $47,600 in support of the mission of Benedictine to help children and adults with developmental disabilities achieve their greatest potential. Funds raised directly support programs and services that provide community-based learning opportunities for over 150 adults as well as on campus functional academics for the School’s 60 students.
Benedictine parent, trustee and lead sponsor, Thad Fletcher along with his wife, Donna Rochelle, hosted the annual fundraising event.
“We are grateful for the programs at Benedictine,” said Fletcher. “Our daughter Gabby has been a part of the Adult Services program now for three years. The compassionate care that the staff shows Gabby, and the rest of the young adults, is proof of the quality of the organization and its programs.”
Many participants from as far away as Texas joined the Fletcher’s for a fun day of golf before the start of the Mid-Atlantic Plan Sponsors Annual Trustee Education Conference held in Baltimore.
The tournament introduces players to the mission of Benedictine and the generosity and commitment of the Fletcher family.
The day on the greens ended with a reception at the venue’s Glass Grill that included a 19th hole shoot-out and entertainment by D.C. jazz vocalist Changamire. The winning foursome was Gerry Esparza, Tyler Grossman, Dan Owens and Christine Turner.
