NW Ark. Food Bank To Receive Charitable Donation from the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship

Today at 2:30 p.m. at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G, the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank will receive over 1.5 tons of Kraft food and a $10,000 cash donation on behalf of Kraft and the Tournament. 
 
The event will be of special significance to the official LPGA Tour event as the food truck picking up the Kraft products from Pinnacle Country Club was purchased from charitable donations the tournament has made two years ago. LPGA Tour professionals Jennifer Johnson and Amanda Blumenhurst will be attending the event and will lead the loading of Kraft products into the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank truck.
 
Throughout tournament week, charitable contributions and product donations totaling $135,000 have been made to numerous organizations throughout Northwest Arkansas, increasing the charitable impact the tournament has made in the community. Local organizations that will be benefitting from the tournament this year include: the Cancer Challenge, the Benton County and Fayetteville Boys & Girls Clubs, the Mercy Foundation, and the South Central Golf Foundation.  In addition to these organizations, the Walmart Foundation as part of LPGA week made a $25,000 grant to Dress for Success to establish a local affiliate here, and also made an additional $475,000 grant to Dress for Success to fund 15 Dress for Success Career Centers across the U.S.  
 
Today’s donation to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank will help celebrate several memorable events that have been made in the days leading up to Friday’s opening round which is being played at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers.
 
When: 2:30 pm Thursday, June 20
 
Where: Pinnacle Country Club in front of the clubhouse
 
Representatives from the tournament, the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank and Kraft will be available for interviews and photos. The event is open to the media and media are encouraged to attend. For more information contact: Mallory.Beck@octagon.com, 919-561-0575.
