Augusta, GA, May 30, 2012 – The inaugural United Way Charity Classic presented by Club Car raised more than $73,000 for health and human service programs supported by United Way of the CSRA.
The event, which was held on May 14 at Champions Retreat Golf Club in Evans, attracted 128 players, including a number of Club Car suppliers.
The funds from the tournament will go toward United Way’s 2012 fundraising campaign, which supports 42 health and human service programs in Augusta and the surrounding area.
“United Way would not be able to meet the growing needs of our community without the generous support of partners like Club Car,” said Rina Powell, United Way’s senior director of resource development. “The impact of an event like this on our community is tremendous.”
Club Car, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is a longtime supporter of United Way of the CSRA.
“Club Car is delighted to continue our support for United Way and the work it does to help address the needs of local residents and organizations,” said Jason Goldberg, Club Car’s vice president of Aftermarket Parts and Services and the company’s United Way representative. “We also appreciate the participation of so many of our suppliers who helped make the first Charity Classic a success.”
