Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer announced on Friday that his celebrity charity golf event at Trump National Doral in Florida is back on after facing backlash and being canceled initially. Poyer made the announcement on Fox News’ “America Reports” and expressed gratitude for the tremendous support received nationwide. He mentioned that the tournament will now be sponsored by PublicSq, a Florida-based company, and will take place on July 10 at the same location. Avalon Sports, Poyer’s representatives, released a statement confirming the rescheduling of the tournament and thanking PublicSq for their sponsorship. They also mentioned that the lineup of participating athletes and celebrities will be announced soon. Initially, Avalon Sports had announced the cancellation of the tournament, stating that it would be rescheduled for the next year. However, with PublicSq’s support, the event is now able to proceed. Poyer had taken to Instagram over the weekend to explain the cancellation, attributing it to teams and a sponsor pulling out due to the event’s location at the Trump National in Doral. Michael Seifert, the founder and CEO of PublicSq, expressed support for Poyer’s stand against cancel culture and applauded his decision to continue with the charity event. The ECMC Foundation, which was set to benefit from the tournament, confirmed that it was not a sponsor but was grateful to have been chosen as a beneficiary. They expressed hope that Poyer would consider supporting them in future events. The rescheduled tournament will still benefit the ECMC Foundation, and Poyer’s commitment to the partnership remains unwavering. Poyer has been with the Buffalo Bills since 2017 and recently signed a two-year extension with the team. He has achieved All-Pro first team honors in 2021 and was a Pro Bowler in 2022. In his last season, he recorded 63 tackles and four interceptions.
