It was straightforward to see how all of the factors related in Greenwood’s community of community-minded organizations at Thursday’s luncheon devoted to celebrating these groups.
Representatives from 10 native groups gathered at Bermuda’s at Stoney Point for a luncheon and verify presentation — distributing to every group a portion of the $250,000 raised from the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women’s Health Classic golf event.
“Not only does the tournament bring attention and awareness to the sport and Greenwood,” stated Jim Medford, president of The Links at Stoney Point, “but the proceeds go back to support the local organizations that our representatives are here to celebrate today.”
Representatives stood to obtain their checks, with funds going to the Greenwood Pathway House, Burton Center, Bowers-Rodgers Children’s Home, Piedmont Technical College Foundation, The Salvation Army, the Greenwood YMCA, Beyond Abuse, the Greenwood Promise, Community Initiatives and Project Hope.
Each group’s consultant gave a quick rationalization of what their group does, many groups intersecting in a method or one other.
This is the fourth yr donating cash from the golf event to native groups, and thru all of it Medford stated greater than $1.1 million have been given again to the community.
“It’s why Denise and I decided to do this in the first place,” he stated. “At the end of the day, this is really why we take all that on.”
