Wells Fargo Championship  

Silver Spring, MD — Easterseals DC MD VA is among the notable charities selected by the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, a PGA Tour professional golf tournament, held in Potomac, Maryland this year. The $30,000 donation supports Easterseals services for children, adults, veterans, and caregivers in the Washington, DC area.

“Easterseals is very grateful for this donation from the Wells Fargo Championship,” says Jonathan Horowitch, Easterseals DC MD VA President & CEO. “The funding will go directly to programs that help each child reach their full potential, improve health and reduce isolation in adults with disabilities, enable military families to integrate into the community, and sustain families and caregivers.”

Tournament officials announced Easterseals DC MD VA as one of the local charities to benefit from $1.2 million in donations raised at this year’s golf tournament, held at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farms this past May. The Wells Fargo Championship’s charitable branch, Champions for Education, chose Easterseals as a nonprofit making a positive impact in the community.

“One of our top priorities each year is to touch the community and play a supportive role in the fabric of the community,“ noted Wells Fargo Championship Tournament Director Gary Sobba in a recent press release.

Thank you to Wells Fargo Championship for supporting Easterseals DC MD VA’s mission to enrich lives and expand opportunities for all children and adults in our communities, including people with disabilities and military backgrounds.
