Seniors Wonderful World of Golf Senior Tour (SWWG) annual ‘Give Back’ Campaign

The Seniors Wonder World of Golf presented checks to three local non-profit agencies last week in their Annual “Give Back” Campaign. This year’s recipients of checks were Ronald McDonald House, Trellis Support Care, and Clemmons Food Pantry.  SWWG, during its 16-event golf season from April through October, collects donations from players in addition to a portion of player tournament entry fees being earmarked for charities. Traditionally at the end of year, SWWG presents these donations to various charities. Because of the pandemic, SWWG was unable to have its annual member breakfast event to present these checks to charities which totaled $4,500.
