The 2010 Principal Charity Classic donated $90,000 to United Way of Central Iowa, a record contribution from the community’s premier charitable sports event.
United Way is one of five “Fore Our Kids” Charities to benefit each year from the proceeds from the annual PGA Champions Tour tournament. The Principal Charity Classic is sponsored by the Principal Financial Group® and presented by Wells Fargo.
United Way uses Principal Charity Classic proceeds to fund literacy initiatives to improve reading skills for thousands of central Iowa elementary school students.
“The 2010 Principal Charity Classic was a tremendous success, attracting a record crowd of 74,000. We’re thrilled with this level of support for children’s charities, and we look forward to taking this charitable event to new levels in 2011,” said Larry Zimpleman, chairman, president and CEO of The Principal Financial Group.
