Chad Blum Memorial Charities, Inc.
Our 17th Annual Chad Blum Memorial Golf Tournament
has unfortunately been cancelled.
It’s hard to believe we lost Chad so long ago and have been without him for over fifteen years. This year also marks thirteen years since losing Alyssa Matus in the fall of 2001. It’s time for all of us to join together again in remembering Chad and Alyssa.
Thanks to everyone’s gracious support over the years, our “grass roots” charity has donated more than $250,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic, which has helped to grant the wishes of 38 children.
Our hope is that you will become, or continue to be, a part of this very special cause. Your donation will help us touch the lives and create memories for other special children and their families. All sponsors receive credit in our tournament program and listings in all event press releases. Details on sponsorship opportunities can be found on our Be A Sponsor page. We are happy to work with organizations to develop unique sponsorship packages outside of those listed. We are also looking for donations and merchandise that we can use as “goodie” bag items, prizes and giveaways for our raffle and silent auction.
Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic
We were blessed to have Payton and her family join us at last year’s banquet. She is so cute and her one wish was to go to Hawaii with her family and swim with the Dolphins. The family also enjoyed the relaxation of walking the beach and collecting sea shells. In addition to granting Payton’s wish, Chad Blum Charities granted Emily her wish of going to a Washington Capitals game and meeting all the players. When five year old Ethen learned we were granting his wish, it was no surprise when he chose to go to Disney World and Lego Land. The joy that these wishes brought to the children and their families is indescribable and priceless.
The majority of our revenues come from sponsors. Our hole sponsorships are $250 and include signage on a golf hole and a host of other promotions. PLEASE help us in any way you can to get sponsorships. This can include soliciting your company, your accountant, your business vendors/suppliers, your ex-husband, your attorney and ANY restaurants you frequent. Our website now offers a Website Sponsorship for only $100 (for a year). In addition to these sponsorships, we can use merchandise donations (gift certificates, sports memorabilia, “stuff” for the goodie bags) that we use for the raffle, silent auction, prizes and the golfer goodie bags.

Please email Steve Mowrey if you can help. We’ll look forward to seeing you on what Chad is promising to be a spectacular day.
Come and join us. Be inspired with us. Experience how truly wonderful and magical it is to make dreams come true.
Hottest summer regards,
Chad Blum Memorial Charities Board of Directors
