The Children’s Museum of Atlanta’s 10th annual Tournament for PLAY, sponsored by PNC Bank, raised $274,000, with the proceeds benefiting the museum’s educational exhibits and quarterly Family Free Days. So far, more than 200,000 children and families have experienced the museum at no cost. More than 120 golfers participated at the tournament, which took place at the Peachtree Golf Club.
“PNC Bank is celebrating its 10th anniversary in the market, and we have seen every ‘Tournament for Play’ of the Children’s Museum exceed the last,” said Eddie Meyers, regional president for PNC Bank in Georgia and chair of the tournament. “Although it’s a wonderful day of networking and playing golf at a great course, this fundraiser ultimately benefits the next generation of leaders through the exposure to innovative, educational and dynamic hands-on children’s programs offered at the Museum. It’s a win-win, because at PNC, we know through the arts and sciences we will make a lasting difference in the future.”
