September 14, 2009 – Now in its 16th year, the LEDO Pizza Golf Classic is the longest running golf tournament to benefit Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Over 200 players participated in this year’s tournament which took place at Queenstown Harbor Golf Course. The event raised $38,000 for the worthwhile cause.
After a fun, golf-filled morning, participants feasted on roasted pig and attended the award ceremony, followed by the silent auction. Entertainment was provided by members of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders, 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, Lankford Sysco and many, many more. Tisher Nissan provided two luxury cars up for grabs if a hole in one was acquired on the designated holes.
One hundred percent of the proceeds benefited John’s Hopkins Children’s Center, the pediatric hospital at John’s Hopkins. 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 54 years but the famous square pizza and trademark thick pepperoni can still be found at any one of its 88 franchise locations across the East Coast. LEDO Pizza is proud to continue supporting local charities, especially one as influential as John’s Hopkins Children’s Center.
