Travelers Championship Raises $3 Million for Charity
With his victory at the 2023 Travelers Championship June 25, Keegan Bradley capped off a record-setting week at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
But his all-time championship low score of 23 under par wasn’t the only record set this year.
The Travelers Companies, Inc. announced that the 2023 tournament generated a record amount for charity.
The Travelers Championship donates 100% of net proceeds to charity and this year will distribute more than $3 million to over 160 nonprofit organizations.
“History-making moments–both on and off the course–are what this tournament is known for, and as a PGA TOUR designated event, the 2023 Travelers Championship certainly lived up to that reputation,” said Travelers chair and CEO Alan Schnitzer.
The primary beneficiary of this year’s tournament is The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
The Ashford-based nonprofit provides year-round care, programs, and a camp experience for children with serious illnesses and their families throughout the Northeast.
“Thanks to this partnership, we have been able to expand our programming to serve more seriously ill children while also providing deeper levels of care to their families,” said CEO Jimmy Canton.
Other charities and nonprofits support important causes like education, housing, human services, and mental health.
Some of those organizations include the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford, Connecticut Foodshare, and Malta House.
History of Giving
Last year’s tournament raised more than $2.5 million, benefitting more than 130 charities.
Since becoming the title sponsor, Travelers has donated more than $50 million to more than 900 organizations.
“This week was one we will not soon forget,” said Travelers vice president and CAO Andy Bessette.
“We celebrated a number of new tournament records as the community embraced New England’s only PGA TOUR event.”
“Our champion, Keegan Bradley, put on an impressive performance against the best player field in tournament history and in front of one of the largest crowds to line the 18th green,” said Schnitzer.
“That level of excitement keeps fans and players coming back, helping us make important contributions to worthy causes and the local economy.”
The 2024 Travelers Championship will take place June 17-23 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
