BI-LO to help raise funds for Grand Strand, Pee Dee charities

Myrtle Beach, SC -

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - It's one of the largest one-day golf tournaments in the nation, and now the BI-LO Charity Classic is asking Grand Strand and Pee Dee residents to help raise money for children's needs, education and hunger relief.

From May 3 through June 12, customers can make donations to BI-LO Charities' fundraising efforts by adding $1 of more to their grocery bill at check-out. The donations made at the cash register will stay in Florence and Myrtle Beach to support local non-profit organizations.

"Our store teams are passionate about getting involved in the communities where they work and live.  This commitment to our neighbors in need has always been part of BI-LO's culture," said BI-LO Charities Executive Director Carol Browning. 

Each local BI-LO location has identified a local charity to support with the funds raised, and the BI-LO stores in Florence and Myrtle Beach areas are supporting North Strand Helping Hand, Coastal South Carolina Chapter of the American Red Cross, South Strand Assembly Food Bank and Helping Hand of Myrtle Beach, among others.

Along with supporting local non-profits through in-store fundraisers, members of the community are also invited to participate in the BI-LO Charity Classic, which will take place in Greenville, S.C., June 6-7, 2010.  Funds from player spots purchased by residents of the Florence and Myrtle Beach areas will be allocated back to non-profit organizations in the player's local community.

Individual player spots are priced at $850 and include 18 holes at a prestigious course as well as tickets for the player and a guest to the auction and pairing party and a post-tournament awards banquet.  Additionally, this year marks the first time tickets can be purchased separately for the Auction and Pairings Party on Sunday, June 6.
