PGA REACH Carolinas Sees Success at First Annual Charity Pro-am

Raises $250,000 for it's Foundation

The first annual Carolinas PGA REACH Charity Pro-am took place on Monday, June 12, 2017 at Quail Hollow Club. Teams of five joined early that morning for breakfast, photos with the Wanamaker Trophy and a 10AM shotgun start on the prestigious PGA Championship course. Key attendees included US Senator, Richard Burr and NASCAR driver, Kevin Harvick, among many other PGA Professionals, CPGA Officers and Board Members, and members of PGA REACH, PGA HOPE and the PGA Championship.

The purpose of the event was to raise money for the PGA REACH Carolinas Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and the philanthropic arm of the Carolinas PGA Section, committed to serving communities and growing the game of golf through three pillars – Youth, Military, and Diversity & Inclusion. Over 20 teams, whom each contributed $5,000 to play, participated in the day of play, with several others signing up for silent auction items throughout the afternoon.

The day concluded with a celebration of the efforts made by attending guests and participants. The event initially reached a donation total of $220,000 until a very generous last minute donation was made by PGA Professional, Perry Green of Wescott Plantation on behalf of his PGA HOPE Chapter, for $30,000. This bumped up the final day’s charitable donation amount for the Foundation to $250,000.

Heimbach was scheduled to speak at the event, which attracted supporters from white supremacist, “alt-right” and neo-Nazi groups.
