Once again, Larry H. Miller Dealerships hosted group employees, vendors and business partners on the golf course to support its charitable arm Larry H. Miller Charities on Tuesday.
Not only did 54 foursomes come out to compete, this year’s 2-day LHM Golf Classic tournament raised $400,000 for the dealership group’s charity program.
Following an opening dinner and silent auction held at Salt Lake City’s Tuscany restaurant on Monday evening, LHM invited tournament participants to go head to head at the Hidden Valley Country Club in Sandy, Utah.
“The proceeds from the Larry H. Miller Golf Classic make a monumental difference in allowing us to give back in the communities where we do business,” group executive vice president of corporate affairs and Miller family philanthropy Jay Francis said in a news release. “This fundraiser is about one-third of the giving we will do this year and will allow us to make a real difference in our communities.”
The LHM Charities organization particularly aims to gift funds to groups and programs that support health and education initiatives for women and children in need, LHM explained.
Last year, 90-plus nonprofit organizations located across seven different western states were able to benefit from the $350,000 raised during the 2017 tournament.
Over $1.5 million in funds have been raised since LHM held its inaugural golf tournament for charity in 2012, and LHM Charities has given more than $8 million in support of several nonprofit organizations, according to the dealership group.
