CCA, America's leader in partnership corrections, today announced the record-breaking results of its 23rd Annual Chairman's Charity Golf Classic. On Thursday, more than 300 golfers gathered at the Hermitage Golf Course in Old Hickory for the annual charity tournament to compete, raise donations and increase awareness for more than 30 Middle Tennessee charities. The event generated more than $400,000 in proceeds, marking the fifth consecutive year the event has raised record-setting contributions to local charities.
"The CCA Chairman's Charity Golf Classic has grown from humble beginnings more than two decades ago to an annual event that benefits scores of Nashville-area charities," said Tony Grande, CCA Chief Development Officer. "Thanks to the generosity of our friends and colleagues who continue to give more each year, we can support agencies that are making profound impacts in our communities."
Through the CCA Charitable Fund, in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, proceeds from the Golf Classic will help support 30 regional non-profits.
