A Big Heart Foundation, Inc., A 501(c)(3) organization will accept the 2014 Communitas Award for Community Partnership. Founded in 2008, the Toys for Tots (T4T) Golf Tournament supports children’s charitable endeavors in Charlotte, including The Arby’s Foundation, Servants with a Heart, Classroom Central, Hope Haven, Inc., and the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation.“On behalf of all of the participants of this year’s tournament, I would like to express my gratitude to the AMCP for awarding the 7th Annual T4T Golf Tournament with the Communitas Award for Community Partnership,” said Jack Burke, Founder of A Big Heart Foundation and the T4T Golf Tournament.
Communitas Awards are an international effort to recognize the spirit of communitas—people helping people. They recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals for excellence in community service and corporate social responsibility. Winners unselfishly give of themselves and their resources, and are changing the way they do business to benefit their communities.
Since its inception, the T4T Tournament has donated over $160,000. The Toys for Tots program’s mission, to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate children at Christmas, is reflected in the spirit of each of the tournament’s sponsors, players and volunteers. With the simple gift of a new toy, supporters are contributing to the creation of better communities made of responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.
On Friday December 5, 2014, ABH volunteers will meet at Toys and Co. in Cotswold Village for the “A Big Heart Foundation Toys 4 Tots Shopping Event.” Proceeds from the 7th Annual T4T Golf Tournament will be used to purchase toys for local families.
