In 2014, Brookshire Grocery Company designed an exceptional fitness event hosted by our FRESH by Brookshire’s store in Tyler, TX. The event draws runners from surrounding states and showcases the beauty of Tyler on foot for 15K, 5K and 1K (kids) runners. We are proud to say that one hundred percent of the funds raised during the race are distributed to deserving national and local charities.
Brookshire’s Benefit Golf Tournament
One day each spring, over 600 golfers gather on multiple courses in the Tyler area to play for organizations with missions supporting education, health, hunger relief, veteran services and the wellbeing of children and their families. This fundraising event is supported by friends of Brookshire Grocery Company, our suppliers and many other generous organizations working hard to make a difference in communities in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. The tournament raised over $500,000 in 2015.
Heroes Flight for Veterans
In May 2010, Brookshire Grocery Company took the first group of veterans on a three day tour of Washington D.C. in what has become the company’s signature event honoring veterans of WWII and the Korean War. Since then, eleven additional groups of veterans have been honored through the program. The trip is fully funded and coordinated by Brookshire’s, at no cost to the veterans.
