PNC Bank Commits Five Year Sponsorship to the ‘Tournament for PLAY’ Fundraiser Benefitting the Children’s Museum of Atlanta

PNC’s regional president Eddie Meyers selected to chair 10th annual golf tournament

On August 29, golfers will once again hit the green for the Children’s Museum of Atlanta’s 10th Annual ‘Tournament for PLAY.’ To commemorate the anniversary, PNC Bank has pledged a five-year commitment of nearly $300,000 for the fundraiser, which generates financial support for more than 200,000 children and caregiver programs each year. Presented by PNC Bank, the golf tournament benefits the Museum’s educational exhibits and community outreach programs. This year, Eddie Meyers, PNC regional president of Georgia, will chair the tournament held at the renowned Peachtree Golf Club.

“The annual ‘Tournament for PLAY’ is a celebration of relationships that ultimately benefits our community through innovation, education and dynamic children’s programs offered at the Museum and throughout Atlanta,” said Meyers. “At PNC, we are a strong believer in the value of early childhood education and know that what the Children’s Museum offers daily through the arts and sciences will also make a lasting difference in the future.”

The philanthropic sporting event enables golfers to support a world of hands-on exploration and discovery that sparks imagination and inspires learning, while playing the sport they love. The Museum is continuously dedicated to bringing its mission to life, by igniting a sense of discovery and learning through the power of play. Sign-ups for participation and sponsorships for this year’s tournament are now available on the Museum’s website.

“The Tournament for PLAY would not be what it is today without PNC Bank’s continued commitment and extreme generosity,” said Children’s Museum of Atlanta Executive Director Jane Turner. “We are eternally grateful to our kind, supportive previous golfers and sponsors and are excited to announce participant sign ups and sponsorship opportunities are now available. As the tournament sells out annually, it continues to raise impactful funds for the Museum to offer the necessary and engaging educational, yet playful, programs children need to learn and develop.”
