Salem’s Kernwood Country Club raises $50K for nonprofits

Salem’s Kernwood Country Club recently announced that its third annual “Kernwood Cares” charitable golf tournament raised more than $50,000 to be distributed to more than 25 nonprofit organizations.

This year, Kernwood Cares paired with the On Course Foundation’s Northeast Qualifier for the 2017 Simpson Cup. This is a two-day tournament that Kernwood Country Club hosts for wounded veterans from all over the United States.

“Kernwood is proud to host the 2017 Northeast Qualifier for the On Course Foundation and the Simpson Cup,” Club President Bruce Bial said. “Philanthropy is one of the core values dating from Kenwood’s inception and our members are so proud to give back to our communities.

“We are honored to give back to the charities that give so much to our communities and especially to our military veterans who allow all of us our freedom.”

Major corporate sponsors included Salem Waterfront Hotel, Riemer & Braunstein, Cohen Hillel Academy and Commonwealth Diagnostics International. Some of the nonprofit organizations receiving financial contributions will be Jewish Teen Initiative of Greater Boston, Wounded Warriors, Alzheimer’s Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, The Jason Garfield Scholarship, the On Course Foundation and Pencils of Promise.
