The 30th annual Brookshire’s Benefit Golf Tournament April 30 – May 1 raised a record-breaking $575,000 for charities, with more than 600 golfers competing on three Tyler golf courses. Brookshire Grocery Co. donates tournament proceeds each year to more than 100 nonprofit organizations in the 150 communities served by Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods and Spring Market stores. The Company focuses its charitable giving on hunger relief, education, family wellbeing, and military/first responders.
Participants were primarily representatives from more than 200 vendor companies, along with BGC leaders and other business associates. Course locations were The Cascades, Eagles Bluff and Hollytree. BGC also hosted a dinner and charity auction Monday evening at the Harvey Convention Center in Tyler.
“We are very excited to be celebrating 30 years of giving back through the Brookshire’s Benefit Golf Tournament,” said Brad Brookshire, Chairman and CEO for Brookshire Grocery Co. “Our Company is committed to making a difference in the communities we serve, and the proceeds from this event will help us support organizations that do a lot of good and enhance lives.”
This year’s donation brings the total funds raised to more than $5.5 million since the tournament’s inception in 1988.
