19th Annual Meineke Tournament of Champions Golf Recap

19th Annual Meineke Tournament of Champions Golf Recap

September 27, 2017

We were so glad to see new and old faces this year at our 19th Annual Meineke Tournament of Champions Golf Outing at The Golf Club at Ballantyne. It was a beautiful day for a round of golf. We hosted over 150 attendees who came to support Meineke and the Driven Brands Charitable Foundation.

A great breakfast in the morning led to some great golfing. For a fall Carolina day, temperatures reached 88°. For those that traveled from afar, we’re sure you weren’t expecting this hot & sunny weather! As teams made their way back, lunch was served and attendees were given the chance to register for the silent auction, participate in the 50/50 raffle and purchase raffle tickets for some exciting gift baskets. Overall…

We raised over $80,000 this year for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!

In the final efforts to reach our goal, we were able to pull $3,000 through the generous support of those onsite. The picture below of Alex Santos is a great representation of how much fun was had on the course. Alex is a part of the Driven Brands family and has been treated at a local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. To have him out on the course is a great reminder of why we do what we do!
