The 2019 Valspar Championship generated $2,274,686 for charity in 2019, marking the fourth straight year the tournament has topped the $2 million mark, according to a statement.
Copperhead Charities has now generated nearly $44 million for charity through the sponsorship of professional golf tournaments in the Tampa Bay area since 1977.
“This is our biggest day of the year,” says General Chairman Jim Eisch. “Both through our Birdies for Tampa Bay Charities program and other donations, we provide support for many different groups – medical charities, youth programs, veterans groups and many others. It is one of our fundamental goals to support the people of the Tampa Bay area.”
The total includes money raised through ticket sales, other tournament proceeds as well as the Birdies for Tampa Bay Charities program.
More than 75 area charities benefited from the tournament.
