Tognum America helps make 7th annual Heroes Jr. Golf Outing a huge success!

The American Red Cross Aiken Area Chapter would like to thank Tognum America for becoming a Super Hero for the American Red Cross.  For the second year in a row, Tognum America graciously offered to be a Presenting Sponsor of the 7th annual Heroes Jr. Golf Outing that was held at Houndslake Country Club on Memorial Day.

With the help of Tognum America, the Aiken Area Chapter raised $41,825 to support Red Cross programs and services!

The annual Heroes Jr. Golf Outing, open to middle and high school-aged players, was coordinated by the local Red Cross Board Chairman, Don Cheeks, and board member, Annie Reagan. During the Outing, kids enjoyed a round of golf, lunch, dinner, Bruster’s Real Ice Cream and an awards ceremony with prizes.

The Red Cross relies on financial donations to support important programs in our community like disaster relief.  After a disaster, the Red Cross meets the immediate needs that families have for temporary shelter, food, clothing and mental health services. Since the beginning of its fiscal year, the Aiken Area Chapter alone has responded to the needs of 95 families, helping 334 adults and children.  On average, it costs $1,250 to assist a family of four following a disaster.

The mission of the Red Cross is made possible through the generosity of our volunteers and financial supporters like Tognum America.  To learn more about how you can support the Red Cross, please visit Redcross.org/Aiken-Area or call the Aiken Area Chapter at (803) 641-4152.
