IREM MARYLAND CHAPTER'S 27'th Annual Charity Golf Tournament Supports Four Local Charities!
IREM Maryland Chapter is the local chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management which is the professional trade association for the property management industry. Our members manage multifamily residential housing and commercial office and retail locations in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. The chapter’s mission is to connect real estate professionals and promote superior management practices by providing professional development through education & networking. Additionally, because we are well rooted in communities throughout the metropolitan area, we feel a responsibility to give back to our communities by supporting various charitable organizations that can make a difference.
Our signature fundraising event to help make this difference is our Annual Charity Golf Tournament. This year we held our 27th annual tournament on August 20th at the Hillendale Country Club in Phoenix, MD.
Through the generosity and support of our tournament sponsors and supporters we raised a total of $20,000 for our charities which included:
Horizon Day Camp which provides a fun summer camp experience for children 3 ½-16 yrs. old who have been diagnosed with cancer
Helping Up Mission who provides a holistic approach to treatment, integrating the practical needs of their clients such as food, clothing and shelter with their clinical needs such as mental health, medical, educational and vocational needs,
Zaching Against Cancer who provides programs and support for family members and others affected by this disease as well as research funding to help find a cure.
The Light House of Annapolis who provides emergency shelter and transitional housing for individuals and families who are homeless as well as permanent supportive housing for women. Their mission is to help rebuild lives with compassion as they transition towards employment, housing and self-sufficiency.
Each charity received a donation of $5,000.00
Over our 27-year history we have raised more than $460,000 for various charities that provide support to individuals in need and to charities that are working towards the cure for cancer and other life threatening diseases.
We are committed to continuing these efforts to help make a difference in the lives of those in need in our community and are very appreciative of the support of our sponsors and contributors.
