DEAN & DELUCA Invitational Shatters Previous Record

Detail Image

The DEAN & DELUCA Invitational generated a record-breaking $11 million in charity this past year. This ranked our event among the top 5 on the PGA TOUR.

The tournament has generated cash and services for more than 150 different organizations in the last two decades totaling $90 million. The breadth of donations focus on children and support a variety of programs, including camp scholarships for disabled, special needs or low-income children, residency programs/services for abused, neglected and at-risk children, cultural programs/field trips for underserved students, college scholarships, educational mentoring programs, medical diagnostic and treatment services for disabled and low-income children, after-school programs, support services for homeless families and more.

Every year since 1998 the tournament has surpassed the million dollar mark in annual charitable contributions.

The professionals make around 1,200 birdies during the tournament. A one-cent pledge would equal a $12 donation. On top of the money raised by the 25 organizations, the tournament will add to collected pledges by 20% on the first $20,000 raised by each charity. The second $20,000 raised by each charity will receive an additional 10% match from the tournament.

"We are thrilled to be part of such a generously philanthropic community," noted Colonial Tournament Chairman Rob Hood. "To be able to leverage the brand of our golf championship in the name of community service is very gratifying. We are so thankful to the many individuals and businesses who support our efforts."P>
