Concord, NC --- The beautiful greens at Trump National Golf Club are abuzz with activity as preparations get well underway for the 2016 Ronald McDonald House Celebrity Golf Tournament, a yearly tradition that brings celebrities, corporate sponsors, participants and volunteers together for a day of friendly competition in support of a worthy cause.
Hosted by ACN Global Reach Charities, the event will take place on May 9th, with 100% of proceeds going directly to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte – a home-away-from home for families with sick children. This year, thirty foursomes, each led by a celebrity captain, will take to the links to raise much-needed funds, as they enjoy a beautiful day on the golf course. ACN is excited to announce DISH Network as the presenting sponsor of the 6th annual Celebrity Golf Tournament. DISH Network’s invaluable sponsorship will help ACN and the local community make a large and lasting impact on Charlotte’s House and for the families it serves. DISH Network has been a perennial sponsor of the tournament, and ACN is proud to partner with the company once again to make a difference for children and families in need. ACN also thanks all of the following sponsors, without whose generosity the event would not be possible: Titanium ($25,000) Dish Network Platinum ($10,001 - $15,000) XOOM Energy Vivint Red Ventures CAS Group Gold ($5,001 - $10,000) INSYS Group Novant Health Fifth Third Bank Charlotte Hornets Silver ($4,000 - $5,000) Nixon Peabody Zervina Technologiues EDF Trading Success Telispire Chase Anovia Siteworx Dixon Hughes Goodman Charlotte Motor Speedway R&J Investments – McDonald’s CRG NorthEast Foundation Arterra Mobility Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Fern Expositions Bank of America – Merrill Lynch Grant Thornton Rose Chauffeured Transportation JCMR Technology RBC Wealth Management Sponsorship opportunities are still available, and ACN welcomes inquiries from interested organizations.
