84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Partner with LPGA Golfer Rachel Rohanna to Support West Virginia Flood Relief Efforts
For every birdie Rohanna makes through 2016, 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort will match donations benefiting those affected by the West Virginia flood.
EIGHTY FOUR, Pa., July 15, 2016 - 84 Lumber, the nation's leading privately held building materials and services supplier, and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, one of North America's premier luxury resort destinations, are partnering with professional golfer Rachel Rohanna to aid in the southern West Virginia flood relief efforts.
A Pennsylvania native, Rohanna is sponsored on the LPGA tour by 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort founder, Joe Hardy.
Starting with this weekend's Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning and O-I, Rohanna has committed to a $100donation for every birdie (a score of one stroke under par) through the end of the 2016 professional season. 84 Lumber andNemacolin will match Rohanna's donation, thus tripling the initial pledge for a grand total of $300 per birdie.
The funds will be donated to the West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster's (WV-VOAD) general flood relief fund.
"In a time of devastation, Rachel has taken it upon herself to help our West Virginia neighbors in any way she can," said Maggie Hardy Magerko, President and Owner, 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. "As part of the 84 and Nemacolin family, we are excited to cheer Rachel on and to match her donation efforts."
In addition to matching Rohanna's monetary commitment, 84 Lumber also recently donated over $20,000 worth of the most-needed personal items to the WV-VOAD in support of the flood relief efforts.
Those wishing to contribute to the WV-VOAD can make a one time or recurring donation here.
