9th Annual Torch Golf Tournament Raises $50K for Village of Promise
Torch Technologies hosted its 9th annual golf tournament on Friday, September 20 at the RTJ Golf Trail at Hampton Cove. The golf tournament hosted 240 players (max capacity) who played on both the River Course and the Highlands Course this year. All proceeds from the event benefited the Village of Promise and its mission to eradicate generational poverty one neighborhood at a time. The Village of Promise helps children of all ages receive support to help them achieve educational success from early childhood in their Infant University program to college and beyond.
The tournament began with an 8:30 shotgun start at the RTJ Golf Trail at Hampton Cove. 60 teams participated in the tournament, enjoying a beautiful day of golf while helping children of all ages receive support to help them achieve educational success- from early childhood in their Infant University program to college and beyond. Through the donations of the players, sponsors, and a contribution from Torch, Torch was pleased to present Cofounder Bobbie Bradley and Executive Director Dr. Rachel Ballard with a check for $50,000 to benefit Village of Promise programs.
President John Watson stated, “We believe in giving back to the communities where our employee-owners live and work. By investing in the future of the children in our community, we aim to raise the standard of living for everyone. We are so grateful to our sponsors, participants, and volunteers for sharing that vision with us. We were excited to be able to grow last year’s donation of $37,500 that is going to Village of Promise programs. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Village of Promise in support of their invaluable programs.”
