The Countdown is On! BMW Charity Pro-Am Returns to The Cliffs Next Month

Less than a month remains until the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation returns to The Cliffs with a star-studded tournament benefitting local charities.

We invite you to join us May 17-20 at The Cliffs Valley for the only tournament on the Tour where amateurs and celebrities are grouped with Tour professionals in a four-day better-ball competition — all while giving back to the community!

Not only does the BMW Charity Pro-Am bring 168 competitive Tour professionals, 36 world-renowned celebrities and amateur golfers to the Upstate, the BMW Charity Pro-Am raises money and awareness for South Carolina charities. Since 2001, the tournament has distributed more than $12.7 million to more than 200 charities, and Cliffs Residents Outreach (CRO) been selected among the beneficiaries for 2018.

CRO is a 501(c)3 non-profit, 100% volunteer organization comprised of members from The Cliffs’ six South Carolina communities. CRO is dedicated to enabling Upstate children to succeed by focusing on literacy, nutrition and mentoring for kids in Greenville, Pickens and Oconee counties. In 2017, CRO equipped over 5,000 children from early childhood through college for success by raising over $500,000 and donating 18,000 volunteer hours.

There are a few ways you can join in on the action while benefitting CRO…
