One of the largest and most anticipated charitable events of the year on the Delmarva Peninsula is the annual Pohanka Pays It Forward Golf Tournament. This year’s tournament was held on Sunday, August 8th at the GlenRiddle Golf Club in Berlin MD, and benefited the American Cancer Society. Over 70 golfers came out for a day of fun, sport, and charitable giving.
Many Pohanka employees as well as a large group of local business owners, golfers, and philanthropists attended the tournament and put their best foot forward on the green.
“It’s a great event we here at Pohanka look forward to all year,” Says Jared Algier, General Sales Manager at Pohanka Honda of Salisbury. “It’s a fantastic way to bring people together and raise money for the community we live in.”
Collectively the tournament raised over $17,000 for the American Cancer Society and gave their first-place trophy to the Pohanka Toyota of Salisbury team which included Toyota’s General Manager Thurman Donoway and their Sales & Leasing Consultant Ryan DeVage.
Many participants were thrilled with the outcome of the tournament and look forward to participating next year. Caleb Moore, Sales Manager at Pohanka Honda of Salisbury said, “I have not had that much fun in a long time and I am looking forward to participating in the future to help the tournament grow.”
Pohanka of Salisbury has been known for its continuous community involvement and generous charitable donations on the Eastern Shore since founding the “Pohanka Pays It Forward” charity initiative in early 2009. Sandy Angello-Fitzgerald, the automotive group’s Owner/Operator, started the initiative amidst the great recession in order to grow the community we all live in and raise our families in. Since that time the program has succeeded in donating over $3,000,000.00 to more than 750 local charitable organizations.
