Ninth Annual "Shop with Joey Sindelar' event at Dick's Sporting GoodsPosted: Updated:
Vestal, N.Y. - The ninth annual "shop with Joey event" took place on Monday night at DICK's Sporting Goods in Vestal. As a part of their annual celebration, Broome County Community Charities Inc. and DICK's Sporting Goods invited twenty children from local Boys and Girl's Club to a Christmas shopping spree at DICK's Sporting Goods.
Each child was chosen based on need by the Boy's and Girl's Club of Western Broome and the Boy's and Girl's Club of Binghamton. The event was hosted by PGA Tour Champions golfer and Horseheads native Joey Sindelar, for the ninth consecutive year. Each child was given $200, courtesy of DICK's Sporting Goods. Children were assigned someone to help them pick out presents, whether it be sneakers, jackets, sweatshirts, etc.
"That's why we put on the golf tournament, it's not just to bring golfers here but to have end results to help our community" said DSGO Tournament Director, John Karedes.
"We've donated now over $17 million dollars back to the community as a result of professional golf, which is something pretty special."
