BURKE is pleased to announce it will present A Big Heart Foundation’s Seventh Annual Toys for Tots Golf Tournament as a corporate sponsor, taking place on Monday, September 22th at Cedarwood Country Club in Charlotte, NC.
The Toys for Tots (T4T) Golf Tournament was founded in 2008, and is today supported by A Big Heart Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization that supports children’s charitable endeavors in the Charlotte metropolitan area. Proceeds from the tournament are generated through event sponsorships and collected toys, which are then donated to the United States Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program.
This year, the tournament will be executed by the new director of A Big Heart Foundation, Paulina Valeri. “I am excited to bring new sponsors and vendors to the green this year, and to grow the positive influence A Big Heart Foundation has on children in the Charlotte community, for years to come.” said Valeri.
Jack Burke, BURKE’s CEO and founder of A Big Heart Foundation, is looking forward to taking his non-profit organization to the next level in 2015. “After six successful years, we are excited to continue to grow A Big Heart Foundation,” said Burke. ABH Foundation plans to organize a variety of events, allowing the organization to diversify into other children’s support organizations, in addition to the annual Toys for Tots Golf Tournament. “Our goal is to make this non-profit better, stronger, and capable of improving the lives of even more children in the Charlotte area,” said Burke.
Since its inception, the tournament has donated over $130,000 in toys to the USMC Toys for Tots Program. The program has a mission to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate children in local communities at Christmas. With the simple gift of a new toy, supporters are contributing to the mission of creating better communities made of responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.
