FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT OF THE EASTERN SHORE TO HOST 36TH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

Salisbury, MD--  Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore will host its 36th Annual Golf Tournament on April 28, 2022 at the Glen Riddle Golf Course in Berlin, MD. The tournament is presented by BBSI and sponsored by R&R Coatings, Gillis Gilkerson and Mountaire Farms.

The event is the longest-running golf tournament on the Shore, attracting hundreds of top-tier business owners and corporations from leading companies up and down the Eastern Shore.

Last year’s tournament, which was the largest in JAES history, featured 140 golfers and raised over $45,600 for student programs. The 2022 event is expected see similar numbers as teams from five Maryland counties take the green.

“We’re super excited to bring this tournament back for a 36th year,” said Jayme Hayes, president of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore. “The money raised supports our students and schools by creating more access to JA programs, while also allowing golfers a day of fun, competitive play to kick off the season.”

Participants will enjoy a complementary catered lunch, drinks and cocktails, cigars, a post-play reception, awards, contests and prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and much more.

Events like JA’s golf tournament are crucial to the continuation of JA programs. All proceeds go towards keeping programming free for students and program innovation.

“We certainly couldn’t do something like that without support from the community,” Hayes said. “With this being our 36th year, it is a testament to an amazing community that continues to support students across the Shore each year.”
