About The Thomas H. Redmiles Foundation
To date, the Thomas H. Redmiles Foundation has raised over $160,000 through eight sold out golf tournaments. In 2020, we will host the 10th Annual T-Red Memorial Golf Classic at Renditions Golf Course, a course Tommy helped open and worked at for many years! We are a small group of volunteers bonded together in memory of Thomas “Tommy” Redmiles. If you were lucky enough to meet Tommy Redmiles, you can be sure you were his friend. He could always be counted on for a laugh, a huge smile and an uplifting spirit. Tommy passed away at age 26 on March 14, 2011, from complications due to Crohn’s Disease. He was the nicest, bravest and caring man many people will ever know.
Tommy was a star soccer player during his youth and when his diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease at age 13 sidelined him from the sport, he focused on tennis where he’d go on to be Varsity Team Captain. He also played baseball and basketball. Tommy later focused his athletic abilities on golf which became a favorite hobby. Tommy graduated from South River High School and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Salisbury University. He was pursuing an entrepreneurial venture in the restaurant industry.
Tommy was a passionate person and the object of much of his passion was the Washington Redskins. He even had contact with his personal hero and spiritual mentor, Joe Gibbs in the months before he passed. Aside from the Redskins, Tommy enjoyed reading mysteries, traveling and most of all, spending time with family and friends. He was a member of Lighthouse Baptist Church in Pasadena. Tommy is remembered for his humor, strength, kindness and loving soul.
Supporting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation was important to Tommy and he led his family in several Crohn’s and Colitis fundraisers. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation is dedicated to finding the cure for Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis. The foundation funds studies at major medical institutions and seeks to improve the life of children and adults living with digestive diseases. They provide a variety of programs and support to those living with these illnesses and to their families.
The Thomas H. Redmiles Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. All donations are fully tax deductible.
The Thomas H. Redmiles Foundation donates proceeds from the T-Red Memorial Golf Classic to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Additionally, the foundation established a scholarship for students in good standing at the Perdue School of Business at Salisbury University, Tommy’s alma mater. Seven students have received the scholarship to date.
