Maryland has some of the most beautiful golf courses around, and the view is even greater when you’re golfing for a good cause. On Saturday, December 3, Sherwood of Salisbury donated a “hole-in-one” car for the 19th Annual Santa’s Open Charity Golf Tournament. This long-running charity event is a community tradition, and once again helped make the holiday season special for local youth in the Ocean City area.
The Santa’s Open Tournament is held annually at the River Run Golf Club in Berlin, Maryland. The 2011 event was co-chaired by Jimmy Sweet of Delmarva Power and John Allen, Jr. of the Delmarva Shorebirds and was sponsored by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Maryland and the Maryland Mentoring Partnership. Each player paid an entrance fee and supplied a new, unwrapped gift for a local child. Gift donations were also collected at the Golf Pro Shop of River Run Golf Club.
Participants enjoyed beautiful weather on the day of the event and a delicious banquet at the Player’s Club restaurant after the tournament. Thanks to everybody who came out to support Maryland’s youth this holiday season!
If you missed the event, don’t worry—you can still make a financial donation at www.biglittle.org, the official site of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Maryland and the Maryland Mentoring Partnership. This organization sponsors many other events throughout the year and pairs volunteers with children for one-on-one mentoring relationships.
