Mark your calendars! Wednesday, October 3rd will be the highly-anticipated Seventh Annual Steve Thompson Classic Chevrolet Golf Tournament. GRACE, along with 11 other charitable organizations, will be the beneficiaries of this premier golf experience. Like the previous years, all donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Susan and Tom Durant.
For several years now, the employees of Classic Chevrolet have been involved with the community on multiple levels and have always been encouraged by owner Tom Durant to expand on that involvement.
Tom and his wife Susan put out the challenge for the employees to “raise as much as they could” for the community, and they would personally match it dollar for dollar. In 2012 a committee was formed by the employees of Classic Chevrolet to take fund raising efforts to the next level, and thus began the annual golf tournament.
In 2014, Classic Chevrolet lost a long time employee and family member, Steve Thompson, who worked as General Sales Manager for the “Thompson Group” Fleet and Commercial Sales department. Renaming the golf tournament “The Steve Thompson – Classic” seemed like an appropriate way to honor their friend who embodied the meaning of giving to others.
This year’s tournament will kick off at 11:00 am at Trophy Club Golf Course. Dinner will be provided by Classic Chevrolet, and players should expect an exciting afternoon for a good cause.
GRACE is so thankful to the team at Classic Chevrolet for supporting our mission year after year!
