In 2005, the Robinson family began a tradition to honor the memory of their matriarch Doris Sharadin Robinson while strengthening the community. Doris was involved in the community in a vast variety of capacities throughout her lifetime, and her family has taken a similar approach in deciding to seek out different benefactors for each annual event to maximize their impact on local organizations. In February of 2015, Doris’ husband George – founder of Kreamer Feed, Inc. – passed as well, which resulted in the name of the tournament changing to reflect their reunion.
In years past, the tournament has benefited organizations like the Middleburg Recreation Association, Evangelical Community Hospital’s Stroke Center, Snyder County Red Cross, the Snyder County 4H, and after-school meal programs for children in need. This year’s efforts were again aimed at the local community; a record-breaking amount raised will benefit the ThinkBIG Pediatric Cancer Fund, financially assisting families who have a child affected by cancer. To date, the tournament has raised nearly $170,000 for the community.
The tournament was held at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club on Monday, July 31st. The event always offers an 8am registration and a light breakfast followed by tee off at 9am. There are countless door prizes donated by local businesses and extensive gift baskets prepared by the grandchildren of Doris and George. There were many opportunities throughout the day to win other prizes, such as the longest drive, putting, and closest-to-pin competitions, a 50/50 drawing, and a hole-in-one prize donated graciously by Beaver Motors. The family and community are very grateful for its gold sponsors and event sponsor, Sunrise Foods International. There were 125 golfers and more than 20 volunteers, many Kreamer Feed and BJE Poultry employees.
