The Travelers Championship is proud to be a PGA TOUR event, which donates 100 percent of net proceeds to charity every year. Since 1952, the tournament has generated more than $33 million for charity and in 2015, the Travelers Championship generated $1.565 million for more than 140 charities throughout the region.
The primary beneficiary for the 2016 tournament will be the ALS Clinic at the Hospital for Special Care (HSC) in New Britain, Connecticut. Each year, HSC cares for more than 250 Connecticut residents with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive disorder that affects the function of nerves and muscle. HSC is the only facility in Connecticut that is part of the ALS Association’s national network of Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence and is certified by the Muscular Dystrophy Association for ALS care. It also runs one of the largest research and clinical trial programs for ALS in New England. If you would like to make a donation to support HSC’s dedication to ALS, please click here.
In addition to supporting HSC, the Travelers Championship will host a fundraising dinner on Friday, August 5, to support the Bruce Edwards Foundation for ALS Research. The dinner will feature legendary golfer Tom Watson, award-winning sports columnist John Feinstein and Travelers Chairman Jay Fishman. Feinstein and Watson founded the Bruce Edwards Foundation in honor of Watson’s longtime caddy and Wethersfield native, Bruce Edwards, who eventually lost his battle with ALS. More information on the Bruce Edwards Foundation Benefit Dinner or to purchase a table, please click here.
