Recipients of proceeds from charity golf tournament announced

 The Spinx Charity Classic will be held on Tuesday, May 1st, 2012. The tournament will be hosted at two of Greenville’s finest private greens, Chanticleer and Riverside Courses. To kick-off the tournament there will be a private pairings party, held in Downtown Greenville, the night prior to the tournament.

 “There are so many great non-profit organizations in this area so it was a difficult selection process. These six organizations meet the Spinx mission which focuses on improving the health, education and well-being of children,” said Stewart Spinks, CEO of Spinx. “We’re looking forward to partnering with each of them through the Spinx Charity Classic.”

 The American Red Cross Greenville Chapter is a volunteer humanitarian organization that provides relief to local victims of disasters and emergencies. By providing affordable home ownership opportunities to qualified low-income Greenville residents, Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County aims to eliminate poverty housing. The Julie Valentine Center is focused on preventing sexual assault and child abuse through educational programs while providing healing and recovery services to victims. Junior Achievement Upstate offers hands-on, experimental programs aimed at teaching young people the key concepts to achieve economic success. Greenville’s mobile food rescue organization, Loaves & Fishes, rescues perishable and prepared food and then delivers it to organizations in the area that feed the hungry. The Ronald McDonald House of the Carolinas helps critically ill and injured children and their families cope with the stress and expense of daily living.
