The BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation, and all related events scheduled June 1-7, 2020 at Thornblade Club, The Cliffs Valley and other sites throughout the Upstate, have been cancelled, organizers said.
“As disappointing as this is for everyone involved, our number one priority is the health and safety of the community-at-large as well as the fans, volunteers, players and sponsors of the tournament,” said Bob Nitto, president of South Carolina Charities, Inc. “Despite the cancellation, the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation remains focused on its mission to raise money and awareness for South Carolina charities and will be working to determine new ways to continue to make a positive impact on the Upstate.”
The South Carolina Charities board of directors and tournament staff said in a statement they appreciate all of the sponsors, volunteers, participants and fans "for their continued support as everyone in the community continues to navigate through these unchartered territories."
Information regarding opportunities to rollover sponsorships, playing opportunities and volunteer positions to 2021 will be detailed later, organizers said.
South Carolina Charities, Inc., the non-profit foundation of the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation, was created to showcase the Upstate and raise money and awareness for South Carolina charities.
Since 2001, the tournament has distributed $13.6 million to numerous Upstate SC non-profit organizations, part of the PGA TOUR’s $3 billion raised for charity.
The Cliffs is a collection of seven private, luxury residential mountain and lake club communities located in the Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains.
Thornblade Club in Greenville is a private, full-service, family-oriented golf and country club.
