What Happened at Edmarc in August 2015

It is hard to believe that summer is over and school is about to start!  August was yet another busy month here at Edmarc. 

This month was filled with Golf Tournaments!  We want to give a special thanks to The Hilfiger’s for putting on their Annual Cole Spencer Hilfiger Golf Tournament benefiting Edmarc.  We love each and every one of you and appreciate your continued support!



Our friends from Bankers Insurance stopped by and presented Edmarc with a check for $5,500!  This was money raised during the Chubb & Son Annual Golf Tournament!  Heartfelt thanks to everyone that made this generous gift possible!






On August 13 we held our 19th Annual Edmarc Charity Golf Classic.  We had a full course and the weather was picture perfect at Cypress Creek Golf Club in Smithfield!  We want to thank our Premier Sponsor Elizabeth River Crossings for helping us make this event so successful!  When it was all said and done we raised $40,000 to support Edmarc’s mission!  We would also like to thank our Golf Committee for the countless hours spent putting together such an amazing event.  We are truly thankful for all of our sponsors, golfers, and volunteers; THANK YOU!!!

Special thanks to the 11880368_10153488141631469_7188936349044421172_nKiwanis Club of Chesapeake for presenting Edmarc with a check during one of their meetings this month!  We love all of our Kiwanis buddies and appreciate their continued support!

We also had a group from Restore Church come and do some much needed yard work to our grounds.  They are also going to help us with an important project over the next few months so stay tuned!
