Able Goes Golfing for Charity!

May 13, 2019 | News

Able Moving & Storage had the honor being the Driving Range and Putting Green Sponsor for Re/Max Gateway of the Washington DC Metro Area’s 16th Annual Charity Golf Tournament. Held on May 6, 2019, at the Chantilly National Golf & Country Club, this tournament benefitted Team hELLAtough and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through Jason Smith’s (2019 Man & Woman of the Year) fundraising campaign.

About Team hELLAtough

Team hELLAtough was created to raise funds for young Ella Borowski who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), is a rare and aggressive form of leukemia with significantly poor prognoses. Ella had an AML mutation with prognostic factors that were much more favorable and is currently in remission. Her family as well as their friends continue to support and raise funds to LLS so that blood cancers are a thing of the past and nobody has to suffer or endure the struggle of it.   

As sponsors of the charity golf event, the Able Moving & Storage team participated in a friendly game of golf and enjoyed meeting new and old faces in the community. As we took some time to reflect on the event and connect with our fellow attendees, it was difficult not to imagine Ella as one of our own. We fully empathized with the Borowski family and understand how deeply cancer can affect not just the [patient, individual, whatever], but her family and community as well.

We were proud to take part in and become a dedicated sponsor for the event alongside other caring individuals in our community. While we had a tremendous time fundraising for LLS, we were even able to witness our team golf a 68 in Best Ball under clear skies and warm weather. Not to mention, as a result of the charity event, over $245,000 was raised for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Able Moving & Storage would like to thank RE/MAX for allowing us to take part in the charity event as sponsors and hope to participate again next year!
