What people say about us

Durabante and St. Francis Neighborhood Center ran a wonderful outing at Hillendale Country Club!  The combination of a great cause supported by a great company at a great golf course can’t be beat!   We were happy to be able to support St. Francis Neighborhood Center through this event and look forward to doing so in the future.

The Durabante Invitational was a classy event run by classy people.  It was held at an excellent club; the course was in superb condition and the food was delectable. I would gladly take advantage of the opportunity to support this tournament and associated charities again.

Thank you for your interest in the DuraBante Charitable Giving Golf Invitational to support St. Francis Neighborhood Center. My name is Christi Green and I am the Executive Director of the Center. The Center is the oldest enrichment center in Baltimore City serving children, families, and community members living below the poverty line. Did you know over 1,200 kids in our area live below poverty? We offer many programs to support the neighborhood, all community driven. Our mission is to end generational poverty through education. Our largest program--our year round youth enrichment programming is completely full, serving 50 youth at a time, and there is a 3 year wait list. We are making a difference and the kids are thriving in school and beyond. What is awesome about this invitational, is it supports community driven capital campaign for the Center to renovate and expand to serve more in the community. This is an opportunity to make a difference in this historic initiative! Thank you!
