Clear Mountain Bank is Grand Sponsor of Annual WGW Community Youth Cup Event
Posted on: May 28th, 2019
Clear Mountain Bank is proud to once again be the grand sponsor for the 8th Annual WGW Community Youth Cup. Providing charitable funding for area youth, the WGW Community Youth Cup has raised more than $675,000 and supported more than 75 area youth organizations in Garrett County. The bank has been the lead sponsor of the event since it began in 2012.
The WGW Community Youth Cup is the primary fundraiser for three Garrett County youth charities: Landon’s Library, The Andrew S. Woods Memorial Scholarship, and Samantha Funding the Arts. The WGW Community Youth Cup also supports many other area youth organizations including: I Can Swim, Garrett Mentors, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and many more. In 2016, the organization helped roll out the Learning Beyond the Classroom Bus, which travels to local communities and provides children with educational tools and activities, groceries and healthy recipes, and other helpful things that keep kids on track throughout the summer. This bus has been extremely popular throughout the county and is providing vital resources to local children.
Founder, Bill Weissgerber, organized the WGW Community Youth Cup with Brian & Crystal Boal, Tom & Debbie Woods and Charlie & June McClosky. They, along with their dedicated volunteer staff, are very committed to these causes.
Weissgerber said, “We continue to be amazed and blessed to have the support and generosity of so many in our local and second home communities. We never ever imagined that we would be generating funds to the level we have. It just goes to show you what a great community we live in. Clear Mountain Bank has played such a large part in our success and we greatly appreciate their ongoing commitment to the Annual WGW Community Youth Cup.”
The entire event runs Thursday June 20 – Saturday June 22. A kickoff celebration will take place at the Deep Creek Greene Turtle on June 20th. The benefit golf tournament will take place at Lodestone Golf Course at the Wisp Resort in McHenry, MD and at the Oakland Golf Club.
