South Carolina Charities Inc. announced on July 20 that the 2020 BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation raised $118,152 for Upstate charities. The tournament was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The charitable funds were raised through donations from this year’s tournament participants, including sponsors, volunteers and ticket holders, as well as the Tournament Week of Giving online auction and charity donations through Birdies for Charity.
“This pandemic has had an unimaginable impact on the charities that lean on our support year-to-year,” said South Carolina Charities president Bob Nitto. “We are truly grateful to our community and tournament participants, volunteers and sponsors for stepping up in this extraordinary time of need to continue to support these charities that make a daily impact on the Upstate of South Carolina. This final total is something we should all be proud to stand behind.”
The following charities will receive proceeds from the 2020 fundraising efforts:
- Mobile Meals of Spartanburg
- Prisma Health Children’s Hospital – Upstate
- Roper Mountain Science Center
- The Cliffs Residents Outreach
- Cancer Society of Greenville County
