Nov. 26, 2014—ABRA Auto Body & Glass announced Tuesday it helped raise $10,000 during the Pine Island Country Club Golf Tournament in Charlotte, N.C., on Oct. 22 to benefit The Sandbox.
The Sandbox, which is based in Charlotte, serves families whose children have cancer or a life-altering illness. Their goal is to help families during the most challenging times so they can focus on what’s most important—the believing in and healing of their child.
Over 100 golfers and guests gathered for the event at the Pine Island Country Club to show their support and encouragement.
“Our gratitude to ABRA Auto Body & Glass, participating golfers, and the Charlotte community is truly overwhelming,” Mara Campolungo, executive director of The Sandbox said in a release. “The donation from the ABRA Auto Body & Glass Golf tournament will exponentially help our organization provide basic, day-to-day needs to families facing cancer or a life-altering illness of their child well into 2015. It also allows us to sponsor the Holiday Wish Lists of additional families to ensure they’re able to receive gifts and warm winter clothing.”
