Enmarket Charity Classic Raises $160,000 for Local Charities
Tuesday, March 30th, 2021
Enmarket’s Enrich Life Campaign, which involves a variety of projects and fundraisers initiated by the Savannah, GA based company, recently raised $160,000 for local charities.
The Enmarket Charity Classic was held on March 23 at The Landings Club. A full field of 144 players teed off in a shotgun start at the Oakridge course.
The event raised $160,000, which was divided among two local charities. The 200 Club of the Coastal Empire serves families of fallen first responders and Make-a-Wish Georgia grants wishes of seriously ill children.
“Each year our nation loses hundreds of first responders who sacrifice their lives protecting our communities,” said Mark Dana, president, 200 Club of the Coastal Empire. “These terrible tragedies leave behind so many family members in need of help.”
To date, the all-volunteer organization has provided more than $3.4 million dollars to families throughout 20 counties in the Coastal Empire.
“Enmarket and its many team members have stepped up again with a tremendous contribution of $80,000,” Dana added. “The Enmarket family with its generosity has helped provide many family members with a fully paid college education, the most we could ever hope for. On behalf of the many Two Hundred Club family members, we are grateful for all the Enmarket family provides for so many in our community.”
“We are so grateful for the generous support of Enmarket and the sponsors of the Enmarket Charity Classic as they help us create hope for local wish kids,” said Meghan Lowe, Make-A-Wish Georgia SE Development Director. “Due to the recent pandemic, we have more kids waiting for a wish than ever before. We are committed to grant the wish of every eligible child, and the Enmarket Charity Classic will help us do that.”
“Our involvement with this fundraiser reflects the spirit of our mission statement, to enrich life,” said Brett Giesick, president of Enmarket. “This event and others such as our store fundraiser for Leukemia-Lymphoma Society, the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run, and the Savannah Hockey Classic also demonstrate our interest in promoting a healthy lifestyle and our dedication to the betterment of our community. We are grateful to the many vendor partners that helped make these donations possible.”
