Sissonville, W.Va. – Even a few brief rain showers couldn’t dampen the fundraising at the Annual AMFM Charity Golf Classic (CGC) at the elegant Edgewood Country Club. The annual golf tournament raised more money for the AMFM Charitable Foundation, which has presented more than half a million dollars to charities, organizations and agencies across West Virginia.
“The funds raised from the tournament are distributed to AMFM’s 16 centers, and then each center selects organizations, charities, and other public efforts for improvement to present those funds to for community enrichment,” said Brandon S. Totten, Community Relations Manager for American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM).
More than $514,000 has been presented to organizations such as volunteer fire departments, food pantries, animal shelters, women’s centers for domestic violence, scholarships for continuing education, and many more recipients across West Virginia.
Most recently, money from the AMFM Charitable Foundation has been donated to efforts in Clay County to help rebuild after the devastating June floods. Clay Health Care Center made a $1,500 donation to Clay County High School athletics, who lost all their equipment in the floods.
“Our sponsors, golfers and volunteers are simply amazing in helping this year’s event a success,” Totten, said. “Not just this year, but for helping some many people over the past several years.”
Top sponsors for the event included Benefit Assistance Corporation, Commercial Insurance, United Bank and the accounting firm of Gray, Griffith & Mays.
AMFM operates 16 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers in Braxton, Cabell, Clay, Boone, Summers, Fayette, Hardy, Webster, Wayne, McDowell, Lincoln, Wyoming, Harrison (Clarksburg and Bridgeport), Marshall and Mercer counties.
AMFM’s mission is “to exemplify excellence in quality care to our customers by providing an environment that enhances personal growth, individuality, dignity and respect.”
