My love for West Virginia and its hardworking people is why I got involved with Remember The Miners, to continue giving back to a state and community that has given so much to us.

Remember The Miners is excited to announce Honorary Chairman Coach Bob Huggins will be attending the Greenbrier Classic, to be held July 1-7th. Coach Huggins will be supporting the efforts of Remember The Miners, which is attending the Greenbrier Classic as a partner in the Badges for Charity program.
Badges for Charity is the Greenbrier’s philanthropic program that benefits non-profit organizations. The program passes a percentage of all proceeds from badge sales to local, state, and national charities. Funds passed through Badges for Charity are generated by the purchase of badges for The Greenbrier Classic, and all badges include weekly access to the tournament grounds, complimentary parking and concert tickets. There is no additional cost associated with designating your badge to Remember The Miners.

“What the Greenbrier has done, both with the resort itself and with the PGA Tour, really invigorates West Virginians, and shows the country that we do in this state is world-class,” began Coach Huggins, adding, “My love for West Virginia and its hardworking people is why I got involved with Remember The Miners, to continue giving back to a state and community that has given so much to us.”
Proceeds from Badges for Charity will benefit the Remember The Miners Scholars Program. The Scholars Program was created in partnership with the West Virginia Coal Foundation to support families of the West Virginia mining community. Awardees of the scholarship are miners, dependents of miners, or students pursuing higher education in the mining industry. Since 2011, Remember The Miners has awarded $75,000 in scholarships through the Scholars Program.
