GVTC Golf Classic Raises $172,000 for Local Charities

GVTC Foundation’s 17th Annual GVTC Charitable Golf Classic raised more than $172,000 for local grants, scholarships and charities. More than 200 golfers and employee volunteers participated in the event.

The proceeds from the tournament, which was held this year at the TPC San Antonio JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa, will be used for nonprofit grants and help fund GVTC Foundation’s scholarships totaling up to $45,000 for graduating high schoolers.

“Every year we are blown away by the support and love of our community leaders, business partners and vendors,” said Ritchie T. Sorrells, CEO and president who founded the GVTC Foundation in 2006. “The philanthropy’s mission is to profoundly enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve, through charitable contributions and volunteer service in support of our program goals, and the turnout for this one cause was incredible.”

Since its inception in 2006, the GVTC Foundation has raised and donated $4.7 million in support of area nonprofits and in scholarships. This event is the only fundraiser held by GVTC Foundation.

GVTC is a fiber-optics communications provider delivering high-speed Internet, digital cable TV, phone and interactive home security monitoring to residential and business customers in far north San Antonio, the Texas Hill Country and South-Central Texas.
