We're excited to continue our relationship with The Greenbrier Classic and embark upon this philanthropic development.
The Greenbrier, WV (PRWEB) April 20, 2011
RememberTheMiners.org (RTM) is pleased to announce a new partnership with The Greenbrier Classic's Badges for Charity. This philanthropic program benefits over 150 non-profit organizations, passing 30% of all proceeds from badge sales of the PGA Tour FedExCup Series to local, state, and national charities.
This is not the first time RememberTheMiners.org has partnered with the famed golfing community. In July 2010, RememberTheMiners.org attended the inaugural Greenbrier Classic. “We're excited to continue our relationship with The Greenbrier Classic and embark upon this philanthropic development,” said Todd Mercer, Program Manager for RememberTheMiners.org, “it is an honor to be recognized as a charitable organization by such a marquee event.”
Formed in 2010, RememberTheMiners.org was formed to raise money for the WV Coal Foundation and other industry scholarships, support miner related issues through advocacy content and event sponsorship, and produce digital media, earned media, and collateral to promote, educate, and rebrand the coal and mining industry by putting the miners first.
Funds passed through Badges for Charity are generated by the purchase of badges for The Greenbrier Classic, to be held July 25-31. All badges include weekly access to the tournament grounds, complimentary parking and concert tickets, including performances by Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, and Miranda Lambert.
Tickets can be purchased here. For more information regarding ticket purchases, please contact Todd Mercer at 703.766.5715 or at todd(at)remembertheminers(dot)org.
In 2010, Badges for Charity raised over $150,000 to participating charities. RememberTheMiners.org hopes to help this program exceed this donation in 2011.
RememberTheMiners.org (RTM) is a public awareness campaign dedicated to honoring the legacy of all miners and the mining industry, bringing the human element to the forefront of the energy debate, and remembering the miners who have fallen. RTM also raises awareness about the sacrifices that miners and their families make for our country. http://www.remembertheminers.org.
