Concord, NC (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
ACN Global Reach Charities is hosting their annual golf tournament on May 6, 2013, at Trump National Golf Club in Mooresville, NC. Golfers and celebrities from across the country and Canada have registered to participate in the tournament. While the opportunity to play with celebrities like Dell Curry and Mark Anderson is enticing, it is the opportunity to support a wonderful cause that has led to a sold out tournament.
100% of the funds raised support the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte – a home away from home for families with sick children – which opened its doors in May of 2011.
The annual tournament has been made possible by donations to ACN Global Reach Charities. ACN, Inc. is the primary donor to ACN Global Reach Charities and has long been a supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities and of the House in Charlotte. In 2008, the company chose Ronald McDonald House Charities as its global charity and began collecting donations for the local Ronald McDonald House chapter at each of its quarterly training events held throughout the world and has donated millions of dollars to the charity. This is in addition to ACN’s $2 million pledge to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte.
“At ACN, helping children is very close to our hearts, so it’s an honor to work with an organization whose purpose is to provide families with the care and support they need during their darkest hours. It’s a humbling experience,” said ACN President and Co-Founder Greg Provenzano.
For the participants, sponsors and volunteers who are involved in Monday’s event, it’s about more than playing a round with a celebrity captain – it’s about making a difference at a local level.
