The Reason Behind Foundation’s Golf Tournament Record
Tournament sees outpouring of support.
The outpouring of support for the 2021 CAP COM Cares Foundation annual charity golf tournament says a lot about the sponsors and their passion to help.
More than 60 sponsors and 180 golfers helped the Foundation raise $146,500, a new record for the tournament, which was held June 7 at Saratoga National Golf Course. The last in-person tournament was in 2019 when the Foundation raised $125,000. Funds are distributed to dozens of local nonprofits through grants and other signature programs throughout the year.
“Sponsors have choices, and they’ve chosen to support the Foundation,” said CAP COM’s Community Impact Manager Paige Rueckert. “By sponsoring the tournament, they are making a collective impact on the community, and we thank them for their generous contributions.”
The Foundation’s community mission is to nurture our community by supporting large and small local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of families in New York’s Capital Region. Based on the current needs in our community, the Foundation is prioritizing areas of giving to entities that support:
Hunger & Food Insecurity
Mental & Behavioral Health
Financial Literacy & Workforce Readiness
“The CAP COM Cares Foundation offers our sincere gratitude to this year’s sponsors and golfers, for their commitment to the nonprofits CAP COM supports in our community,” stated Chris McKenna, CAP COM’s President and CEO. “Without our partners, our passion to serve thousands of children, families and those who are under-resourced in our region would not be sustainable.”
