Artesian charity golf tournament raises $100K
NEWARK – Artesian Resources Corp. announced that its 10th annual charity golf outing raised more than $100,000 for local charities, bringing the 10-year total to over $500,000.
Proceeds from this year’s event benefit worthy organizations that serve the needs of residents in and around the Delmarva Peninsula, including the American Heart Association, Deep Roots – Cecil County, Easterseals Delaware & Maryland Eastern Shore, and Habitat for Humanity Sussex County, among other local charities.
Over 140 golfers representing Artesian’s valued vendors and business partners gathered on Sept. 9 at the Deerfield Golf Club in support of these organizations.
“The magnitude of our sponsors’ generous support far exceeded our expectations this year. We are so grateful for the continued generosity and participation through the years from our sponsors and are very pleased to once again be able to contribute to charities that serve the needs of so many across the Delmarva Peninsula” said Dian C. Taylor, chair and CEO, in a statement.
The American Heart Association (AHA) has been fighting heart disease and stroke and helping families and communities thrive. The dollars raised in the golf outing have helped the AHA invest in research funding to reduce deaths from heart disease and stroke by nearly 15% since 2018.
Deep Roots – Cecil County strives to break the generational cycle of homelessness and serves as a homeless shelter for children and families in the community. They provide education, support, mentorship, and better life experiences to enrich the lives of those they serve.
Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore offers a range of services, including children’s therapies, assistive technology, recreational camping, day programs for adults with physical or intellectual disabilities, and respite services for caregivers.
