Winthrop Financial has been a proud sponsor for the last 3 years of the Bunkers in Baghdad golf tournament held at Ivy Ridge Golf Club in Akron, NY. Bunkers in Baghdad is a not-for-profit charity that collects and sends new and used golf balls, clubs and equipment to our troops around the world. Their first official shipment of golf balls went out in November 2008 to reach Iraq in time for the holidays. In their 7th year, to date they’ve shipped over 7,200,000 golf balls and over 525,000 clubs to Afghanistan plus 49 other countries around the world and to facilities in each of the 50 states.

Winthrop Financial has been a proud sponsor of The Make Lemon Aide Foundation for Cerebral Palsy for the last 3 years. Inspired from the tender heart of 17-year old Lauren Walier during her journey of challenges and self-discovery as a young person with CP, The Make Lemon Aide Foundation raises funds to support the development of new treatments, to advance research, and create a public forum of information exchange to improve the quality of the lives of individuals and families affected by CP. Upon learning that there is NO dedicated Federal funding line item for CP research, we decided to get involved to help make a difference. Please click on their link to learn about ways you can donate!
