SIOUX FALLS, SD (October 23rd, 2017) – The GreatLIFE Cares Foundation is proud to announce that $91,000 was raised during the LPGA Symetra Tour Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge tournament for the Houston Relief Fund and local first responders from Team Rubicon, and their efforts to aid in the recovery from Hurricane Harvey.
What started as a single pledge during the Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge by Houston-native, and LPGA Symetra Tour player Shannon Fish, inspired an extremely successful match funding initiative by the GreatLIFE Cares Foundation.
The GreatLIFE Cares Foundation would like to thank the Symetra players for participating, and everyone in the community for supporting this extremely important endeavor, as well as all the participating businesses that helped collect pledges, including Great Western Bank, the Luxury Auto Mall of Sioux Falls and all GreatLIFE locations. Participants could pick a player to back during the tournament and pledge a dollar amount per par, birdie or eagle made by that player, or they could also pledge a flat amount to the relief efforts. The GreatLIFE Cares Foundation then matched those pledges.
“I’m thrilled at the support our Sioux Falls community showed to our friends in the Houston community,” says GreatLIFE Chairman/CEO Thomas P. Walsh Sr. “In times of crisis, we come together and do all we can to help those going through tough times.”
The GreatLIFE Cares Foundation is committed to provide support and leadership for programs and efforts benefitting children, families and organizations involving golf, fitness and healthy lifestyles. Learn more at http://joingreatlife.com/great-life-cares-foundation/
