Business Golf Sale 2024

Business students have once again raised thousands of dollars for the Children’s Dyslexia Center of the Lehigh Valley through their annual golf sale. 

Initiated in 2022 as part of a senior capstone course, the sale provides students the opportunity to flex their management and leadership skills while contributing to a worthy cause. 

“DeSales’ golf apparel sale has been one of our biggest financial supporters. It has provided tools for tutors who take the knowledge and techniques learned in our tutor training program back to their schools or private practices, impacting even more students and teachers.”

 Cindy Brown, co-director of the Children’s Dyslexia Center of the Lehigh Valley 

Marissa Sutton ’24 played a key role in organizing this year’s event. A pharmaceutical marketing major, she led efforts to advertise the event, assign shifts, organize inventory, and more.

“I was motivated to make this sale a huge success, not only because it is part of my course, but because I’m committed to raising money for an organization that supports such a great cause,” says Sutton.

This year, nearly $5,000 was raised, bringing the total donated to the organization by DeSales business students to more than $20,000 since the event’s inception. Items sold at the event range from apparel, such as polos and sweaters, to stickers and koozies.

Brown is grateful for our continued partnership noting that, “We are a nonprofit, and could not do the important, life-changing work we do without financial support.”
