2017 Ellie Mae Classic Presents $50,000 to the Warriors Community Foundation
Events | Erica Harvill | February 15, 2018 |
Golden State Warriors fans – if you watched or attended last Saturday’s game against the Spurs, you likely had the chance to see our very own Jonathan Corr (President and CEO, Ellie Mae) and Trish Gregovich (Tournament Director, Ellie Mae Classic) present $50,000 raised from last year’s Ellie Mae Classic to the tournament’s main charitable beneficiary, the Warriors Community Foundation. Ellie Mae, the PGA Web.com Tour and TPC Stonebrae are proud to have partnered with the foundation as the tournament’s main beneficiary for the second year in a row.
Not only did last year’s Ellie Mae Classic host 156 of the world’s top golfers vying for PGA tour cards, but spectators and fans were also in for a unique opportunity to see Golden State Warriors All-Star Guard Stephen Curry compete amongst them on an unrestricted sponsor exemption. Charity continues to play a key role in every PGA TOUR-sanctioned event, and the $50,000 in funds raised from the 2017 Ellie Mae Classic will go straight to the local community to support education and youth development to promote thriving students, schools and communities.
“Being a part of [the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae] and having such a prominent presence in it…is truly an honor and helps us to be able to showcase a little bit more about who the Warriors are, both on the court and off the court,” says Joanne Pasternack, Executive Director of the Warriors Community Foundation.
