Rutter’s golf outing raises nearly $1 million

Since 2003, the Rutter’s Children’s Charities golf outing has raised more than $3.7 million.


Rutter’s Children’s Charities announced it raised more than $980,000 to benefit local charities during its 22nd annual Charity Golf Outing, held May 6-7.

“This year’s event is a testament to Rutter’s partners and suppliers’ support of worthy causes,” the company said in a statement.

It was striking that the outing was given an exciting boost by the presence of former professional football players Ed Reed and Torrey Smith, who graciously made a guest appearance. In recognition of their support, Rutter’s Children’s Charities donated to both the Ed Reed Foundation and the LEVEL82 Fund.

The prestigious Country Club of York, located in York, Pennsylvania, served as the venue for the event and attracted participation from more than 160 different vendors, suppliers and partners. The substantial funds generated from this outing will play a critical role in strengthening Rutter’s Children’s Charities’ programs and initiatives throughout 2024, Rutter’s noted, reinforcing its commitment to making a positive difference in its communities .

“We are extremely grateful,” said Suzanne Cramer, president of Rutter’s Children’s Charities. “Their continued generosity ensures local children and charities in our communities get the vital support they need. Every contribution, big or small, makes a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.”

Since its inception in 2003, the annual two-day golf event has been a cornerstone of Rutter’s Children’s Charities’ philanthropic efforts. Over the past 22 years, this event has played a critical role in raising more than $3.7 million to support local children’s charities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia.

In the previous year alone, revenues from Rutter’s Children’s Charities’ 2023 golf outing made a significant impact. Contributions include $100,000 earmarked for holiday giveaways, $100,000 earmarked for the Rutter’s Secret Santa program and $50,000 earmarked for local youth sports leagues, among other charities.

All money raised is used to directly improve the lives of local children and families in need.
