Michelin Raises Record $682,000 at Golf Tourney

Michelin North America raised a record $682,000 during its annual charity golf tournament.

Hosted each October at golf courses in Greenville, S.C., the Michelin charity golf tournament is supported by Michelin suppliers and business partners from around the world, the tiremaker said. This is the 26th year Michelin has hosted the tournament, raising $4 million for charities since its inception in 1989.

“The generosity of our suppliers this year was remarkable. We thought last year’s total was tremendous, and now we have collected donations for these charities that exceed 2014 by 27%. We are deeply grateful for their support of our communities,” said Leesa Owens, director of community relations for Michelin North America. “The organizations that will benefit from this generosity have a meaningful and important impact on their local communities. Many lives will be touched by these contributions from our valued suppliers.”

Money collected from this year’s event will go to eight charities serving South Carolina and other communities where Michelin has a manufacturing presence. This year’s charities are:

Homes for Hope  

The Center for Community Services

Military Child Education 

PRIDE (Parents’ Resource Institute for Drug Education)

National Organizations for Youth Safety 

Palmetto Conservation Foundation 

Safe Harbor 

The Walker Foundation
