This is a fun badminton tournament held near Baltimore to aid of the victims and their families and to help organizations that provide relief to those devastated by events such as tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, house fires and other disasters. The scope of these disasters can be international, national and local.
We have three funds run by the American Red Cross to receive all the net proceeds of this tournament. Those funds are the International Response Fund, the National Disaster Relief Fund and the Chesapeake Region Emergency Fund. You can choose which fund you wish to support (for how much each fund received, see the Results pages on the left side).
The Charity Open has raised over $50,000 for the Red Cross!
Please join us and the good sponsors below in this effort to help the American Red Cross with their emergency responses by participating in this fund-raising badminton tournament.
The Catonsville Badminton Club and
Loch Raven Badminton Club guarantee that the Red Cross
will receive at least $1000 after expenses
