HARTFORD, Sept. 13, 2022 — The 2022 PGA Travelers Championship golf tournament generated more than $2.5 million for more than 140 local Connecticut charities, the tournament announced. Organizations receiving donations included food banks, animal shelters and this year’s primary beneficiary – the Hole in the Wall Gang camp.
The Travelers Championship donates 100% of its net proceeds to charity. Since Travelers became title sponsor in 2007, the tournament has generated over $25 million for more than 800 nonprofits.
“Celebrating with the charities that benefit from the tournament is always heartwarming” said Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “Helping people in our community continues to be the mission of the Travelers Championship, and thanks to a dedicated title sponsor, our team of tournament staff, Travelers employees, volunteers, and the support we get from our amazing fans and incredible sponsors, we were able to accomplish what we set out to do.”
In a recorded message shown during the charity celebration, 2022 Travelers Championship winner Xander Schauffele said, “The Connecticut fans really came out and supported me during the event, which is obviously a big reason why we all love playing. What’s more important is the tournament makes a big impact on the community, and that really makes me proud.”
Preparations have already begun for the 2023 Travelers Championship, which will take place June 19-25 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. For more information, visit TravelersChampionship.com.
