Taylor Enterprises held it's annual golf tournament on October 31st and this year the company decided to do something a little bit different. Due to some very generous gift and prize donations to our golf tournament from Shell, Peterbilt, SunTrust and others, we were able to conduct our first tournament raffle with the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish of South Carolina.
Through the extraordinary participation of practically everyone that played that day, we were able to raise $1,250 from our raffle! The awesome generosity did not stop there as TEI President and CEO, Eric Taylor, pledged to match the amount that was raised from the raffle, bringing the total donation to $2,500!!
Make-A-Wish Corporate Development Manager, Kea Wade, represented MAW at the golf tournament that day. She was extremely excited with the success of the tournament and the surprise of TEI matching the amount raised. Kea wrote to TEI, "Thank you for including Make-A-Wish in your golf tournament and becoming a wish granting partner. It's because of kind folks like you that we are able to grant over 200 wishes a year to local children facing a critical illness. Thank you for your support!"
