At the end of this year’s Wegmans LPGA Championship, the United Way’s Children’s Success Fund received a check for $1-million from the tournament.
"We are so proud to have been part of this world-class event," says Colleen Wegman, president. "We thank our people who worked so hard to make this possible, along with our partner suppliers, the volunteers, and our entire community. They came together to make this a memorable and meaningful event for the youth in Rochester."
Officials tell us 100-percent of the proceeds from the Wegmans LPGA Championship Tournament have been invested to help kids to graduate from high school.
Since the start of the tournament, more than $11-million has been donated to programs in the Rochester community.
