At an event held at The First Tee on Tuesday morning, officials with the Dominion Energy Charity Classic golf tournament announced that last year’s event generated more than $1.2 million for charities in the region.
The tournament, which is entering its fourth year in 2019, brings the PGA Tour Champions to Richmond during the circuit’s playoffs.
The tournament is focused on supporting veterans, and many of the beneficiaries will be organizations that work with military — the Virginia Veterans Services Foundation will oversee that charitable giving.
“As the Dominion Energy Charity Classic continues to grow, so does our pursuit to maximize the charitable impact to the Richmond area,” executive director Steve Schoenfeld said in a press release.
The 2019 event will take place during Oct. 17-20.
