Giving to the community through the World Golf Championships - Bridgestone Invitational
Northern Ohio Golf Charities Foundation is part of a volunteer organization that has sponsored professional golf tournaments at Firestone Country Club for over 60 years. Tournaments have provided over $23 million to local charities seeking to improve the quality of life in northeast Ohio. Organizations who benefit from the proceeds of tournaments include Akron Children's Hospital, the American Red Cross, Golden Age Centers of Cleveland, the Regional Food Banks of both Akron-Canton and Cleveland, Metroparks and the Akron Art Museum.
Fun, friendship and charity in the heart of the action
Every year over 1,000 volunteers of all ages come together to enjoy the World of Golf Championships - Bridgestone Invitational from a whole new perspective. Working in many capacities, donating their time and talent to help run the golf tournament, the volunteers take a great deal of pride in hosting this world-class event. They have also found that the tournament is a unique family activity, as well as a great way to make new friends that love golf and enjoy giving to their community.
On behalf of Northern Ohio Golf Charities, our title sponsor Bridgestone and the PGA TOUR, we THANK YOU, our volunteers, for making the 2014 Bridgestone Invitational the best-run event on the PGA TOUR. We look forward to seeing you next year.
