CohnReznick Raises $5,000 at 13th Annual Baltimore Golf Tournament
Proceeds from Baltimore event benefit the Baltimore Child Abuse Center
Baltimore, MD - CohnReznick LLP, the 10th largest accounting, tax, and advisory firm in the United States, today announced that they raised $5,000 at its 13th Annual Baltimore Charity Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Baltimore Child Abuse Center, a non-profit organization that seeks to provide support to victims of sexual abuse in Baltimore.
CohnReznick hosted the tournament at Rocky Point Golf Course in Essex, Maryland on June 9, 2014. More than 70 golfers came out to support the Baltimore Child Abuse Center. Participants in this year’s event had the opportunity to bid on assorted raffle items and compete in the longest drive and closest to the pin contests for men and women.
“Every year the employees of our office pick a local charity to be the beneficiary of our golf tournament fund raiser,” said Ira Weinstein, co-managing partner of CohnReznick’s Baltimore office. “The Baltimore Child Abuse Center, an organization that we have gotten to know over the past few years, was our selection this year. They are an amazing group of people doing very difficult work in support of too many children in our community.”
The Baltimore Child Abuse Center is a leader in responding to and preventing child abuse. The organization focuses on four main activities: intervention, treatment, education, and advocacy and provides victims and their non-offending caretakers with comprehensive forensic interviews, medical treatment, and mental health treatment with a goal of preventing future abuse. The center investigates over 1,000 cases of child abuse each year and is supported by government grants and donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals.
CohnReznick’s annual golf tournament began more than 10 years ago in Baltimore to aid the children of a CohnReznick employee who was diagnosed with a rare blood disease. Continuing this tradition, the tournament supports a different charitable organization each year.
