Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer’s charity golf tournament is once again taking place at the same place that caused the event’s initial cancellation.
Less than a week after the NFL pro-baller announced the a major sponsor and players had dropped out over the charity game’s location at former President Donald Trump’s Florida golf course, he reported that it was back on again.
Poyer revealed that the celebrity studded event had resumed because of a single sponsor’s support.
“The great news is that the tournament is going to happen,” Poyer said during an appearance on Fox News’ “America Reports” Friday.
Jordan Poyer from the Buffalo Bills had to cancel his charity golf tournament because of liberal sponsors pulling out due to it being hosted at Trump Doral.
Well, at @officialpsq, we care about raising money for charity and we're also not a bunch of babies.

“We had the most amount of tremendous support around the country,” he said about the public outcry over the event’s cancellation.
“We had a sponsor — PublicSq — based right out here in Florida … they’re going to sponsor the entire tournament.”
The “Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-Freedom” marketplace connects “freedom-loving American” online shoppers with local “values-aligned businesses.”
PublicSq took over in time to make sure the event could go out without a hitch on it’s originally scheduled date at Blue Monster.
“And the tournament is actually happening July 10 at the same exact place [Trump National],” Poyer told the outlet.
The company’s founder and CEO Michael Seifert told Fox News Digital that they wee “proud” to partner with the NFL star.

“We’re glad to see he’s standing against the cancel-culture mob that tried to shut down this charity event, and we will always support freedom-loving Americans like Jordan whenever there is an opportunity to do so,” he remarked.
Poyer’s representatives, Avalon Sports, confirmed that the Jordan Poyer Celebrity Open had been rescheduled in a statement.
“We are grateful to announce that PublicSq will be our presenting sponsor for this year’s edition,” the company said.
They also acknowledged the tremendous amount of backing that came from across the nation.
“We also want to highlight the outpouring of support that we have received from professional athletes, the general public, businesses and charitable organizations across the country,” they continued.
The identities of the event’s participants had not previously been announced, but that will all change soon.
.@TheBuffaloNews you’re a disgrace. Obviously you guys don’t try and report the news, but prefer to be partisan hacks.
Jordan Poyer tries to give back to Buffalo and you shame him across social media.

“In the next couple of days, we will announce our athlete and celebrity lineup,” the statement confirmed.
PublicSq’s sponsorship offer has clearly come in the eleventh hour, as Poyer’s wife, Rachel Bush, went on an epic Twitter rant about the event’s cancellation.
“Let’s be very clear. Jordan did not cancel his event. We will always stand proudly with our beliefs and hold true to them. Publicly,” she tweeted on Monday.
“And we can easily spend our own money to fund the tournament. It wasn’t about that,” she continued. “Tournament will be at same spot next year. Trump’s course.”
Bush said that she and Poyer were on a family vacation when sponsors and teams alike dropped out over woke “pressure from up top.”
“The event was cancelled due to the arrogance of others, and then backing out last minute leaving us in a difficult spot to make everything happen properly,” Bush explained.
Poyer seemed to be crushed when he announced the tournament’s cancellation, while he was shirtless and clearly poolside last weekend.
Buffalo Bills Safety Jordan Poyer had to cancel his charity event because it was being held at a Trump Golf Course. Only woke elite snobs hate the idea of Making America Great Again.

“I was really excited for this tournament,” he said in an Instagram video.
“It was going to be at one of my favorite courses, the Blue Monster at Trump National in Doral.”
“Unfortunately, there have been a numerous amount of teams up north that have pulled out of the tournament,” he added.
The Bills’ safety pointed out that they went as far as contacting “a big sponsor” to let them know they dropped out, which caused the company to back out as well.
“It’s unfortunate that they have pulled out and decided that they don’t want to take part in my tournament, in which they took part in last year, because of where it’s at, Trump National in Doral,” Poyer said at the time.
