The Enmarket Charity Classic returned March 23, raising $250,000 to be split between the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire and Make-A-Wish Georgia.
This was the fourth annual Enmarket Charity Classic, which is part of the company’s sponsorship of the Club Car Championship at The Landings Club in Savannah, Georgia. More than 280 golfers took part this year.
“This event benefits two remarkable nonprofit organizations, and Enmarket couldn’t be prouder of our role in helping both the 200 Club and Make-A-Wish Georgia,” said Matt Clements, president. “We recognize how vital it is to be a good corporate citizen, but beyond that, events like the Enmarket Charity Classic also illustrate the joys of living in the Coastal Empire.”
The 200 Club serves the families of fallen first responders in the local area, while Make-A-Wish Georgia grants wishes of critically ill children.
“Enmarket and the Enmarket family have a long history of generous support for the 200 Club,” said Mark Dana, president of the organization. “This backing makes it possible for us to support the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our community.”
Meghan Lowe, southeast development director for Make-A-Wish Georgia, said, “We bring hope to our local wish kids and their families, and we couldn’t do it without the generous support of companies like Enmarket and the Enmarket Charity Classic sponsors. Our vision of granting the wish of every child in our area is only possible through the dedicated commitment of long-term supporters like Enmarket.”
Participants played the Marshwood and Magnolia courses at The Landings Golf and Athletic Club.
