Commitment to the Community
The SAS Championship presented by Bloomberg Businessweek has benefited charitable causes in the Triangle for the past 13 years. In 2014, the SAS Championship will support the YMCA of the Triangle's WeBuildPeople campaign through Y Learning, YMCA of the Triangle's standardized tutorial program.
2014 Y Learning Information
Y Learning, the YMCA of the Triangle’s standardized tutorial program, serves students in grades K – 8 who struggle to reach school system benchmarks. Most Y Learning students lack financial and educational support at home. Students participate in Y Learning at no cost, thanks to community support and donations to the YMCA of the Triangle's annual WeBuildPeople campaign.
Today, more than 1,000 students in Wake, Durham, Johnston, Lee and Pamlico Counties participate in Y Learning. The cost for one child to participate in Y Learning is $1,432 per year.
In addition to providing competitive opportunities for its membership, TOUR events also generate significant funds for local charities. In fact, the three Tours have surpassed the $2 billion mark in overall charitable contributions. The PGA TOUR's web site address is www.pgatour.com and the company is headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
