On September 10, 2008, LEDO Pizza held its 15th annual Golf Classic to benefit the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Over 225 players participated in this year’s tournament which took place at Queenstown Harbor Golf Course. The event, hosted by Frank Herzog, a radio sportscaster legend for the Washington Redskins, raised $40,000 for the worthwhile cause. Entertainment was provided by members of the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders, and Wentworth Richardson performing the island steel drums.
The success of the event relied heavily upon its numerous sponsors including at the $5,000 Chairman’s Club level- Pepsi, US Foodservice, Solution Sales, and Lankford Sysco; at the $2,000 Master’s Circle level- Perdue Farms; and many, many more. Tisher Nissan provided two luxury cars up for grabs if a hole in one was acquired on the designated holes. Other companies, like O’Leary’s Restaurant and DaMimmo, donated items for the silent auction.
One hundred percent of the proceeds benefited John’s Hopkins Children’s Center, the pediatric hospital at John’s Hopkins. Hopkins Children’s prides itself on treating every child that enters its vicinity. It offers patients the best care available in modern pediatric medicine. U.S. News & World Report ranks Hopkins Children’s fourth in the nation’s top children’s hospitals. It is Maryland’s largest pediatric hospital with 176 beds and is the only state-designated trauma center for children.
Since its creation near the University of Maryland, in 1955, LEDO Pizza has dedicated much time to giving back to its beloved community. The company has grown a lot over the past 53 years but the famous square pizza and trademark thick pepperoni can still be found at any one of its 86 franchise locations across the East Coast. LEDO Pizza is proud to continue to support local charities, especially one as influential as John’s Hopkins Children’s Center.
