Rutter’s Children’s Charities hosted its 22nd annual Charity Golf Outing on May 6 and 7, and the event achieved record breaking success by raising over $980,000 to benefit local charities.

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 twenty-two years, this event has played a pivotal role in raising over $3.7 million to support local children's charities across Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia.

The outing received an exciting boost with the presence of former professional football players Ed Reed and Torrey Smith, who made a guest appearance. In recognition of their support, Rutter’s Children’s Charities proudly donated to both the Ed Reed Foundation and the LEVEL82 Fund.

According to the company, the funds generated from this outing will play a pivotal role in bolstering Rutter’s Children’s Charities' programs and initiatives throughout 2024, furthering the organization’s commitment to making a positive difference in its community.

Suzanne Cramer, president of Rutter’s Children’s Charities, expressed heartfelt gratitude towards Rutter’s partners and suppliers for their exceptional support of the 22nd Annual Outing. “We’re immensely grateful,” she remarked. “Their unwavering generosity ensures that local children and charitable organizations in our communities receive the vital support they need. Each contribution, big or small, makes a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.”

Last year, the proceeds from the 2023 golf outing contributed to $100,000 allocated for holiday season giveaways, $100,000 dedicated to the Rutter’s Secret Santa program, and $50,000 earmarked for Local Youth Sports Leagues, among other worthy causes.
