Selinsgrove, PA— For 11 straight years, Sire Advertising’s Annual Golf Marathon has raised money to support local community-based organizations. Fundraising surrounding the 2018 event, which was held this past May, recently came to a close and check presentations were made to two local organizations: Summer Seals Day Camp and the Ronald McDonald House of Danville.
“Since day one, we’ve always valued our local community. Many of our clients are right here in the Susquehanna Valley and some of us grew up here as well,” said Sire President Shawn Felty. “Our Golf Marathon is one of the ways in we support our local kids and contribute to programs that make our community such a wonderful place to live and work!”
Both organizations offer invaluable programs and opportunities to enrich local youth. The Summer Seals Day Camp is an innovative six-week summer learning program for third and fourth grade Selinsgrove students. This enriching opportunity was especially designed to improve reading and math skills during the summer months while encouraging development of social skills and promoting physical activity.
The Ronald McDonald House, located in Danville, PA, provides a warm and welcoming home away from home for families of children who are receiving medical treatment at area hospitals. Providing much-needed assistance during times of need, Ronald McDonald House has become a mainstay in our community.In the past 11 years, the Sire Golf Marathon has raised nearly $70,000 in contributions! Since its start in 2008, The Golf Marathon has been successfully raising funds through the support of sponsors to improve the lives of children in the Susquehanna Valley.
