Travelers Championship Generates $1.35 Million For Charity

Travelers today announced that the 2014 Travelers Championship generated in excess of $1.3 million for charity. Great weather and a player field that included some of the best golfers in the world drew large crowds and engagement from the entire community. The week-long event delivered record-breaking support for non-profit organizations across New England, such as The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, an organization that provides a summer camp experience for children suffering from serious illnesses.

“I want to thank everyone who helped make the 2014 Travelers Championship an overwhelming success,” said Jay Fishman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Travelers. “As a hometown company, we are proud to be part of an event that has a tremendous impact on the local economy and benefits so many charities across the region.”

The tournament provides 100 percent of its net proceeds to charity and offers programs that allow charities to use the tournament to raise funds. In addition to the more than 1,200 Travelers employees who volunteer at the event, the company’s employees participate each year in Birdies for Charity, a program that collects pledges for every birdie made during the Travelers Championship to raise additional funds for the tournament’s charities.

Fishman added, “Tournament Director Nathan Grube and his entire staff worked tirelessly and did an exceptional job this week to put on a world-class golf event. The competition was outstanding, and Kevin Streelman is a great champion. We look forward to another exciting tournament next year and the opportunity to continue giving back to the community.”

The 2015 Travelers Championship will be held June 22 - 28 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn.
