The BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation is pleased to announce its 20th year of tournament play June 10-13 at Thornblade Club and The Cliffs Valley. In partnership with the PGA TOUR, South Carolina Department of Commerce and DHEC, South Carolina Charities, Inc. (SCCI) has been diligently preparing modified event plans to ensure safe execution of tournament play and tournament week events.
Daily credentials start at $15 and grant ticket holders one-day access to the tournament course of their choice with ticket prices capping out at $150 for access to the Skybox Club Presented by Gibbs Cancer Center. Parking is included with all tickets, and children 18 and under are granted free grounds access to the tournament when accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Complimentary daily grounds admission is also granted for all active duty, retired, reserve military and veterans, along with their dependents; a valid ID is required for entry.
According to SCCI President Bob Nitto, “We are pleased to welcome spectators back to the BMW Charity Pro-Am this year and look forward to delivering a fun, safe and rewarding experience. This tournament is a win-win for the community and the great causes we are able to support year after year.”
Spectators will also enjoy a great celebrity lineup this year, which includes household names such as six-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe nominated actor Anthony Anderson, former Major League Baseball player Roger Clemens, Larry the Cable Guy and Cedric the Entertainer.
New in 2021, SCCI will partner with the YMCA of Greenville to host the YMCA Family Fun Zone, located on property at Thornblade Club. In addition, the tournament will welcome back military and first responders in support of the Upstate Warrior Folds of Honor Palmetto State Chapter. The Birdies for Charity program presented by Michelin North America, Greer CPW, and Capital Corporation continues to raise bonus dollars by enabling individual donors to make a one-time flat donation or pledge one cent or more per birdie during the tournament.
The funds raised from tournament programs, including tickets sales, volunteer hours and Birdies for Charity have allowed the BMW Charity Pro-Am to donate more than $13.7 million in charitable funds to the tournament’s featured beneficiaries and ancillary charities in the Upstate community. 2021 tournament beneficiaries include Mobile Meals of Spartanburg, Roper Mountain Science Center, Cliffs Residents Outreach, Cancer Society of Greenville County, Meyer Center for Special Children and Gibbs Cancer Center and Research Institute.
