AgriBank and EW!DC Raise Funds for Children's Literacy

By EW!DC / Published: 09/07/2016

Title sponsor, AgriBank, the St. Paul-based Farm Credit Bank, once again partnered with Everybody Wins! DC (EW!DC), the Washington Metropolitan Area’s largest children’s literacy and mentoring non-profit, to present the 2016 AgriBank Ag Open golf tournament on Tuesday, September 6th at Queenstown Harbor. 

 

Through the support of AgriBank and the other 38 sponsors, the AgriBank Ag Open raised more than $100,000 for EW!DC’s signature mentoring and literacy programs. AgriBank, a long-time tournament supporter, took over the title sponsorship in 2014.

 

 EW!DC Executive Director Mary Salander said, “Thank you so much to AgriBank and to all of our sponsors for their generous support. We enjoyed a beautiful day out on the golf course and raised crucial funds that will help EW!DC carry out our mission of promoting literacy in the DC area.”
