On October 19th, the MAX4Kids Foundation hosted its 17th Annual MAX4Kids Charity Golf Tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Prattville.
With 206 golfers and 109 dedicated event sponsors, the fundraising event was a huge success and netted over $36,000! MAX4Kids hit a milestone, reaching the $1 million mark in contributions to local children's charities and the MAX4Kids scholarship fund.
"Over my career, being able to work at a job that not only allows, but also encourages purposeful work like the MAX4Kids Foundation Golf Tournament has been a blessing," said Chief Retail Officer and the MAX4Kids Foundation President Wayne Blackwell. "Having the opportunity to do this with a group of people such as the MAX team members that truly have a heart for their communities and do it for the right reason is incredibly rewarding."
Funds raised at the tournament are used to benefit children's charities in the River Region and East Alabama, as well as the MAX4Kids Scholarship Program.
About the MAX4Kids Foundation
The MAX4Kids Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created in 2001 by MAX associates as a way to give back to the communities MAX serves. Throughout the year, MAX volunteers hold fundraisers that include the MAX4Kids Annual Charity Golf Tournament, blue jean days, cookbook sales, candy bar sales and other events to raise money. We appreciate the efforts of all associates for MAX4Kids, as well as the many services provided by the receiving charities.
At MAX, we believe investing in the future of local students is also investing in the future of the communities we serve.
