By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, the 2021 Travelers Championship has generated more than $2 million for 112 charitable organizations informed the Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV). The insurance provider became the title sponsor in 2007, and the tournament has generated $22.5 million for more than 800 non-profits across the region, since then.

The Travelers Championship donates 100% of its net proceeds to charity, and this year’s primary beneficiary is the Ashford, Connecticut-based organization, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp providing a traditional summer camp experience for children with serious illnesses. The camp also lost four buildings to fire, earlier this year. Travelers and the Travelers Championship helped to rebuild the campus, with $1 million in donations.

“Congratulations to Harris English for his win in an epic, eight-hole playoff, and to the entire field for another outstanding tournament. Such a dramatic finish capped off an unforgettable week that saw the return of fans to TPC River Highlands. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of so many, the level of play on the course was once again matched by the support that this year’s tournament generated for so many worthy causes. From the PGA TOUR, to the State of Connecticut, to all the volunteers and fans whom we welcomed back to Cromwell, we’re grateful to everyone who had a hand in making the 2021 Travelers Championship both memorable and impactful.” stated Alan Schnitzer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Travelers.

“Having fans back with us this week was fantastic and added to the amount we were able to generate for charity, which is what this tournament is all about,”, “Our partnership with this community is something we’re incredibly proud of, and we couldn’t be more thankful for the continued support. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back in 2022.” stated Andy Bessette, Executive Vice President, and Chief Administrative Officer at Travelers.
