More than 177 golfers descended on Queenstown Harbor Golf Course to participate in the Chesapeake BaySavers 4th Annual Golf Tournament that was held on May 13, 2016. The scenic, critically-acclaimed Lakes and River courses provided a scenic backdrop for the most successful event in the organization’s history, raising nearly $100,000 from 46 sponsors, auction donors and golfers to support the BaySavers’ ongoing efforts to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay.
This year’s event featured a beat-the-pro contest with Ashley Grier from Columbia Country Club and Scott Stokes from Chester River Yacht and Country Club, a chance to win a car sponsored by King Auto, and a chance to win a boat sponsored by Waterfront Marine. Featuring bagpiper Doug Cutter in the morning and steel drum player Orlando Phillips in the afternoon, the tournament was a huge success due to the support of our 46 sponsors which included The Law Offices of Evan K. Thalenberg, ClearShark H2O, M&T Bank, Moran Insurance, The Iron Rooster, Mackenzie Management Company, Chesapeake Surgical, Red Coats Global Care, Graul’s Market, The Venable Foundation, The Davis Group and many others.
Evan Thalenberg, Co-Founder and Board President of the Chesapeake BaySavers, kicked off the event with brief remarks, emphasizing the legislative successes of the BaySavers and their impact on the Bay.
“The Chesapeake Bay is a wonderful natural resource – and our goal is to protect and restore it for generations to come. Just this past year, we’ve led the charge to pass some of the most important pieces of legislation in the history of the Bay, and we’ve been able to do that because of the support of the people here today. Thank you for helping us to protect this natural treasure for generations to come!”
We hope that everyone who played, sponsored, donated or volunteered is proud of being a part of such a huge success and will mark your calendar to next year’s golf tournament being held on Friday, May 12, 2017 at the Queenstown Harbor Golf Course!
