Arrowpoint Capital To Sponsor 2016 Community Matters Golf Tournament
ArrowpointCapital will serve as a sponsor for the Third Annual Community Matters Golf Tournament, to be held July 18, 2016, at the Pine Lakes Country Club in Charlotte.
Arrowpoint is one of 30 companies sponsoring the event, which raises money to combat homelessness in the Charlotte, NC, region.
Community Matters was formed in 2011 by a group of insurance and risk management professionals as a means of working together to make a difference in Charlotte by partnering with one or two local charities each year. The organization has raised more than $800,000 since its inception.
“We would never have imagined that our industry would come together like it has to make such a meaningful difference in our community,” said Arrowpoint President & CEO John Tighe, who serves on the Community Matters Board. “And it’s not just the money. Just as important are the volunteer hours our members are contributing – over 40,000 since we began.”
The Third Annual Golf Tournament is one way that Community Matters is raising funds to fight homelessness. 108 golfers from across the insurance industry will take part to benefit the programs and services of the Community Matters’ current charity partners -- Charlotte Family Housing and Crisis Assistance Ministry.
