Jordan Poyer has revealed his annual charity golf event has been canceled due to the withdrawal of funding due to the venue; Trump National in Doral, Florida.
Poyer took to Instagram on Sunday to express his open dismay at the outcome and the wider state of America to inform his followers that golfers and sponsors pulled out “at the last minute” due to “external pressure”.
The All-Pro said Erie County Medical Center — a hospital in Buffalo he described as the “biggest sponsor” — was pulled. ECMC asked buffalo news they have been ‘beneficiaries’.
“The ECMC has decided that they can no longer take the pressure from above, from the people above them, and it probably has nothing to do with the ECMC,” Poyer said in an extended Instagram video.
“I’m very grateful and blessed to have worked with the people I’ve worked with at ECMC over the past two years,” he mentioned earlier than revealing the obvious, underlying actuality of the script.

‘I’m not naive. I take their place on the political spectrum, New York’s place on the political spectrum. Do I agree with many? No, I do not have. I’m sorry, but I don’t.
“I often say the silent part out loud and some of you don’t like it. My mistake. I was still going to put my ego aside and go help those who needed help or needed a laugh.
The Director of ECMC Base Government instructed The News on Saturday; The ECMC Foundation was fortunate enough to benefit Jordan Poyer’s golf match in Florida. While the Foundation was not a sponsor, we have had a wonderful working relationship with Jordan and respect his determination to cancel his game; we hope he will consider supporting us in his future endeavors.
According to the ECMC Foundation’s website, its mission is “to improve higher education for career success among underserved populations through evidence-based innovation.”
Poyer admitted that while he was “a little” upset by the scenario, he is particularly saddened by the state of the United States.
“I’m angry that here we are in America… Our egos seem to get in the way of us being good people,” he continued in an Instagram video. (Not) sharing the love, sharing the conversation, laughing with people who might not think the identical things you do, that’s a huge disadvantage in America.
“I can drop my ego any day of the week to help someone who is white, black, Asian, Puerto Rican, Dominican, believe it, believe it. It helps others. It’s about sharing that experience and being open that we’re not perfect.

Trump’s golf course in Doral Florida was home to the Miami LIV Golf Invitational in October 2022.
‘Nobody’s perfect… The thing is, we need each other. Do we argue about (things) that don’t matter?
Avalon Sports, which represents the All-Pro, issued a press release detailing the merits of this event, which no one will win in 2023.
“The tournament is a charity initiative that Jordan has been working on for the past six months. Our main goal was to raise money for the Buffalo community,” the statement read.
The ‘This Year’ (sic) event took place at one of Jordan’s favorite golf programs in South Florida. The Blue Monster at Trump National in Doral, Florida. This is a PGA course where Tiger Woods won The Doral Open two years in a row in 2005 and 2006.
On May 17, 2022, Poirier based his title on the “mentality of supporting people struggling with mental health and substance abuse of any kind.” Its mission is to ensure that there can be “support and education for individuals and families affected by substance abuse.”
