THE WOODLANDS, TX (Thursday, July 26, 2018) — Interfaith of The Woodlands recently received a generous donation from Waste Connections, Inc., as a beneficiary of their 10th annual Golf Classic for Kids on March 25 and 26 at Golf Trails of The Woodlands. Interfaith received $110,000 that will go toward helping our neighbors in need throughout South Montgomery County.

Interfaith of The Woodlands was honored to be among the 10 charities that benefited from the event, which raised a record-breaking one million dollars. Festivities began the evening before the tournament with a reception featuring improvisational speed painter Dan Dunn. The following morning, players and guests arrived to a picture-perfect day. Special guests Roger Clemens, Johnny Damon, Josh Beckett and Bronson Burgon were on hand to visit with attendees. Throughout the 18 holes of golf, players were treated to a variety of contests and refreshments on the course. Even non-golfers were able to get in on the fun with a VIP Experience that included Erin Ness, professional poker player.

Waste Connections has raised well over three million dollars for charities since this event came to The Woodlands in 2012. “It’s donations like these that keep the doors of Interfaith open,” said Missy Herndon, Interfaith’s President and CEO. “We are grateful for the continued support from Waste Connections that allows us to continue our mission of building a more loving and caring community through service.”
