PGA of America REACH Foundation Philadelphia Receives $30,000 Donation From Philadelphia Cricket Club

Lower Gwynedd Township, Pa. (June 14, 2024) — The PGA of America REACH Foundation Philadelphia, the Philadelphia PGA Section’s 501(c)(3) charitable organization, recently received a generous $30,000 donation from the Philadelphia Cricket Club’s Five-Ball for the Four-Ball golf tournament.

The event was played on the club’s Wissahickon Course, just before hosting the United States Golf Association’s U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Golf Championship on May 25-29, and was designed to support local charity organizations. The club invited six local not-for-profit organizations to participate, guaranteeing each a minimum donation, while event’s winning team was allowed to pick one of the charities to receive a $30,000 donation.

The winners (Mike Anderson, Jose Rovelli, Dominic Origlio III, Conrad Von Borsig, and Robby Walizer), sponsored by John Evans’ Sons Co-President and Philadelphia Cricket Club Junior Golf Chairman Sam Davey, chose PGA REACH Philadelphia as the event’s main benefactor.

“Playing in the Five-Ball for the Four-Ball charity golf tournament was an absolute blast and our team was grateful to play the Philadelphia Cricket Club’s Wissahickon Course in peak-tournament condition,” said Davey. “We are thrilled to have designated PGA REACH Philadelphia as our team’s benefactor because of their ongoing efforts to improve lives bringing more golf to people without access to the game, our youth, and to the men and women who have served in our military.”

The donation will help support the foundation’s Youth, Military, and Diversity & Inclusion programming such as PGA Jr. LeagueGolf in SchoolsPGA HOPE Philadelphia (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), and the Philadelphia PGA Junior Tour Diversity Scholarships.

“We are incredibly grateful to Mr. Davey’s team and the Philadelphia Cricket Club for their benevolent donation,” said PGA REACH Philadelphia Director Courtney Curcio. “Their donation will go a long way to improve lives through the game of golf here in the Philadelphia PGA Section.”
