Michelin Golf Tourney Raises $110,000

Michelin North America’s recent annual charity golf outing raised $110,000 for six charities in its hometown Greenville County, S.C.

The Michelin Pro-Am Charity tournament, now in its 20th year, is hosted annually by Michelin for its suppliers from across the country and around the world. All told, the event has raised some $2 million for South Carolina charities.

“Michelin remains committed to supporting the Upstate community, an area we have called home for nearly 35 years,” said Herb Johnson, MNA’s director of community relations. “Our suppliers understand and support this commitment, which allows this tournament to support organizations that are making a significant impact on the children and youth in our community.”

The six charities that benefited from the 2009 tournament were Clement’s Kindness Fund for the Children, Communities in Schools, Hispanic American Women’s Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, Lapsits for Early Literacy and the Upstate Fatherhood Coalition.
