Rutter’s announced that its 18th Annual Children’s Charities Golf Outing this week raised a record of more than $375,000 for local charities in 2020.
The annual two-day golf outing began in 2003, and has since raised $2.5 million for local children’s charities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. This year, Rutter’s changed venues for the outing, holding it for the first time at the Country Club of York in its hometown of York, Pa. Rutter’s will utilize the funds raised from their charity golf outing to benefit its many charitable giving programs in 2020.
“We are extremely grateful to our suppliers, vendors, and partners for their support of our annual golf outing,” said Scott Hartman, President and CEO. “During these difficult times, their contributions will give us the opportunity to continue supporting local children through Rutter’s Children’s Charities.”
In 2019, funds raised from Rutter’s charity outing benefitted numerous charitable organizations, including:
- $100,000 to UPMC Memorial Hospital
- $50,000 to Rutter’s Secret Santa program
- $20,000 to the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation
- $20,000 to the Adams Country SPCA
- $10,000 to the Salvation Army
