 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Golf Fore A Cause, Sponsored by RLAH Real Estate, Raises Over $38,000 for Two Local Charities 

Chevy Chase, MD (June 3rd, 2021) - The 2021 Golf Fore A Cause charity golf tournament, held on Monday, May 5th, raised over $38,000 for Community of Hope and NBCDI. The second annual tournament, put together by Balaram Owens and Ryk Palmer of RLAH Real Estate, was an incredible success thanks to all attendees and their sponsors. 

“This event, and all the money raised, would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the incredible generosity of our sponsors and attendees.” said co-chair Ryk Palmer. “$38,000 is an incredible amount of money and we are so proud to donate it to Community of Hope and NBCDI. They are deserving of every single dollar and we hope to continue to raise more and more money each and every year.” 

Community of Hope has two main goals: to end homelessness for families and to improve health and eliminate inequities in health outcomes in under-resourced communities.

NBCDI, the National Black Child Development Institute, has a mission to improve and advance the quality of life for Black children and families through education and advocacy. 

“We’ve carefully chosen these two charities because of the amazing things they do to help our communities,” said co-chair Balaram Owens. “Ryk and I stand for inclusion, love, acceptance, and support. If we do not love our neighbors, all of our neighbors, how do we love anyone? We will continue to develop meaningful ways to use our voice, platform, and social capital to fight racial injustice.”

Sponsors of this year’s tournament included RLAH Real Estate, First Home Mortgage, Vellum Mortgage, C.L.A. Title & Escrow, LLC, DMV Title & Escrow, LLC, Eagle Creek, and Loan Depot.

The event, held at the Montgomery Country Club in Laytonsville, MD, began with the welcome speech, followed by a putting contest and 18 holes of golf. Following the tournament, all participants were treated to lunch and an open bar while they participated in a silent auction. The event concluded with closing remarks from the announcement of the winners.
