Check out the full tournament recap:
This unique charitable golf tournament benefits Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education (Snider).
Golfers have the opportunity to compete for prizes at each individual leg, as well as a grand prize and year-long bragging rights for the cumulative low net at the completion of the four rounds. Congratulations to the 2023 winners Team Independence Blue Cross (net) and Men of Iron (gross)!
Thanks to the generosity and foresight of the late Ed Snider, all donations and foursome registrations are matched 2:1. Ultimately, the 2023 tournament raised over $1.5 million for the under-resourced youth in Snider’s program. As the principal fundraiser for Snider, the tournament supports the vital academic achievement, hockey, life skills, scholarship, and career development programming for over 1,600 boys and girls. Since its inception in 2021, the Snider Cup raised over $4 million for Snider youth.
“Participation (in the Snider Cup) helps build the stories of thousands of students just like myself. I’m just one of the many thousands of students you impact by participating. Your continuous support helps build the lives of, not just myself, but kids years before me, and years to come after me.”Zach Martin, Snider Alumnus
Thank you to everyone who supported the Snider Cup with foursomes, sponsorships, and in-kind donations.
