Carolinas PGA Hosts 53rd SignArt NC Open and Aims to Raise $5,000 For Hendrick Family Foundation with Help from Mobipaid
This week, 150+ amateurs and PGA Professionals have gathered at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis, North Carolina for a shot at one of the region’s most prestigious golf tournaments and a unique chance to support The Hendrick Family Foundation – the charitable arm of Hendrick Motorsports and the Hendrick Auto Group. The Foundation helps to fight hunger by supporting the local food bank and works with the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System to identify schools where high risk children are in need of clothing. The Foundation also supports the Be The Match and its bone marrow donor program.
The Carolinas PGA’s 53rd SignArt North Carolina Open offers a unique fundraising opportunity for the Foundation with help from presenting partner, Mobipaid, who supports payments and donations through text messaging and social media. During the event, tournament participants, guests and other attendees will have the opportunity to show their support for the Hendrick Family Foundation with fundraising opportunities on-site and online.
Show your support for the Hendrick Family Foundation by offering a donation!
