Reopen Montgomery Grant Application Available July 29
The new Reopen Montgomery Program grants will reimburse Montgomery County businesses for expenses incurred to comply with State and County reopening requirements to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and maintain public health. The application will go live tomorrow, July 29 at 12 noon.

The program will provide grants of up to $5,000 per applicant to help County businesses reopen.

You can find more information, including eligibility requirements, on their website . The sample application is on this website. We encourage you to prepare everything you will need to apply so that you are ready once the applications are available tomorrow.
Annual Sandy Spring Bank Golf Classic
Due to COVID-19, we had to reschedule our Sandy Spring Bank Golf Classic from May 4 to Tuesday, September 1 . The tournament will look a little different this year as Whiskey Creek Golf Club will be taking extra measures to make sure all of our attendees remain as safe as possible.

Additionally, instead of donating a portion of our proceeds to a non-profit this year, we will be purchasing gift cards from local retail stores & restaurants to use in our usually donated raffle baskets. We want to support our local businesses as they reopen to the public.

Take a look at our available Sponsorships or contact Courtney DeLucia for more information.
