$1.8 Million Raised For Charity at 2018 Travelers Championship Golf Tournament
Dow 30 component, The Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV) is an insurance provider of property casualty insurance for home, auto, and business.
The 2018 Travelers Championship, a golf tournament that gives 100% of its net proceeds to nonprofits, brought in $1.8 million. The funding from this year’s tournament will help support nearly 130 organizations. The Travelers Championship has raised over $16 million since 2007 when Travelers became the title sponsor of the tournament.
The main beneficiary of the event is The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a camp experience for children facing serious illnesses that were founded by Paul Newman in 1988. Tyler Backus, Carly Demartino, and Jeremy Brown, all campers, served as the Honorary Co-Chairs for this year’s Travelers Championship. Their mission was to help raise awareness about the importance of camp in the lives of over 20,000 children each year.
Besides the ticket sales, events such as the Women’s Day Breakfast, the Travelers Celebrity Pro-Am, and the Liberty Bank Concert Series also contributed to the tournament’s charitable focus.
Alan Schnitzer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Travelers stated, “We work hard to make the Travelers Championship a world-class event — attracting top players, thousands of dedicated fans and, ultimately, raising a significant amount of money for so many worthy causes. Congratulations to our 2018 champion, Bubba Watson, for his impressive win against the world’s best golfers. We’re grateful for everyone’s support in helping to make this another unforgettable week.”
The 2019 Travelers Championship is scheduled for June 17-23 at the TPC River Highlands in the town of Cromwell, Connecticut. More information can be found at http://travelerschampionship.com/.
