We are proud to announce Scott Geller, who chaired the Chesapeake Chapter Golf Outing for fourteen years, as the first ever recipient of the Annual Community Partnership Award. The award was presented at The Annual SMA Conference this June in Washington D.C.
Scott first attended the Chesapeake Chapter Golf Outing as a guest. Scott was immediately attracted to the grassroots efforts of the organization, its commitment to help families, and the real difference that fundraising can have to combat this disease. He quickly took on the role of tournament chair.
Scott took the event to extraordinary heights over this fourteen year journey. Without him, the golf event couldn’t have reached the many organizations it did in the financial community—a wonderful testament to the many companies and individuals who believe in Scott and CRM, and also support the work of Cure SMA.
During Scott’s tenure as Chair of this event, more than $1.8 million was raised for Cure SMA.
Scott saw a need to make a difference in the lives of so many children that he never met. We are ever grateful for his contribution and proud to present him with this award on behalf of the entire SMA community.
