Foundation Golf Tourney Raises $235K
Over 150 broadcasters and celebrities helped the Broadcasters Foundation of America raise $235,000 to help broadcasters in need at the 2013 Celebrity Golf Tournament on Monday at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, NJ. The tournament is one of the Foundation’s biggest annual fundraisers. The Foundation is expecting to grant more than $850,000 in aid over the next year.
The Broadcasters Foundation of America has distributed millions of dollars in aid to hundreds of broadcasters who lost their livelihood through a catastrophic event, debilitating disease, or unforeseen family tragedy. Individual membership is only $150 a year and can make a difference in the life of a colleague who has fallen on desperate times. Donations can be made as a personal gift to the Foundation’s Guardian Fund and corporate contributions are accepted through the Angel Initiative.
