For Immediate Release

 Charlotte, NC, October 10, 2018— On behalf of Champions for Education, the Wells Fargo Championship announced today a donation of $100,000 to Foundation For The Carolinas to assist with hurricane recovery efforts in the Carolinas.

Champions for Education is the non-profit arm of Charlotte’s PGA TOUR event, which has donated over $20 million to local and regional charities since 2003.

The Wells Fargo Championship was conducted in Wilmington, NC in 2017 at Eagle Point Golf Club while its annual host golf course, Quail Hollow Club, prepared for the PGA Championship that year.

“The communities in the eastern part of the Carolinas have been very supportive of our event before, during and after our 2016 tournament,” Wells Fargo Championship Tournament Director Gary Sobba said. “We also have volunteers and fans living across this region who have supported us through the years both in Charlotte and Wilmington. We are grateful we can assist them and others through the efforts of FFTC.”

Foundation For The Carolinas is celebrating its 60th year. FFTC is the sixth-largest community foundation in the country, serving donors and a broad range of charitable purposes in North and South Carolina. With assets of $2.5 billion, the organization’s mission is to inspire philanthropy and empower individuals to create a better community.
