ATD golf tournament raises funds for charities
American Tire Distributors Inc. (ATD) announced it has donated $170,000 to three Charlotte-based charitable organizations thanks to its 25th annual ATD Charity Classic golf tournament.
The event has raised more than $1.3 million in total funds for local and national non-profit organizations. This year’s donations were raised by contributions from vendors participating in the golf tournament and a contribution from ATD.
“We’ve been a member of the Charlotte community for over 75 years and we believe it’s absolutely essential to support groups that help address the important needs of our community,” says Bill Berry, president and chief executive officer of ATD.
ATD donated $56,700 to The Ada Jenkins Center, which supports people in the North Charlotte area to become better educated, healthier and economically self-sufficient. The Center accomplishes this objective through the integrated delivery of health and human services.
ATD also donated $56,700 to Moore Place, a part of Charlotte’s Urban Ministry Center. Moore Place provides housing and supportive services for chronically homeless adults in the community. Moore Place provides these services through private support in a more cost-effective manner than local shelters or other government-funded options.
And ATD also donated $56,700 to Crisis Assistance Ministry, which provides assistance and advocacy for people in financial crisis by helping them move to self-sufficiency
