Spinx Hosts 17th Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament
Spinx has chosen five charities that will benefit from its 17th Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held on Wednesday, May 10th. The beneficiaries are the American Red Cross of the Upstate, American Red Cross of the Lowcountry, Safe Harbor, Ronald McDonald House of the Carolinas and Harvest Hope Food Bank.
The tournament will take place at the Cliffs at Mountain Park and Cliffs Valley courses. Since 2000, Spinx has raised nearly one million dollars for local charities with proceeds from the tournament. Spinx chose beneficiaries that are aligned with its corporate charitable mission, “Spinx & Kids: Mind, Body, Spirit. Growing healthy kids where we live, work and play.”
“17% of our fellow South Carolinians live in poverty,” said Jane Daniel, Director of Donor Relations at Harvest Hope Food Bank. “This gracious donation from Spinx can help us fight off hunger, which affects the twenty counties we serve in the state of South Carolina and we look forward to another successful event this year.”
“We are so grateful for Spinx’s support and partnership. These funds will assist us in providing services for children and families who have been affected by domestic violence” stated Becky Callaham, Executive Director for Safe Harbor. “Investing in these children will not only provide them with safety and healing now, but will provide prevention for potential domestic violence in their own future relationships.”
