BFA golf tournament raises a quarter mil.



Over 150 broadcasters and notables came out for the Broadcasters Foundation of America Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Briarcliff Manor, NY last week, raising $250,000 to fund grants to help broadcasters in need. Cases in point: The Foundation has already distributed $50,000 collectively to 50 broadcasters impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and is preparing to distribute $100,000 in emergency grants for those affected by Hurricane Irma. According to Foundation Chairman Dan Mason, “The funds come at a time when more broadcasters than ever are in need of emergency assistance.” Foundation President Jim Thompson said, “We are pacing to distribute more than $1 million in monthly and emergency grants over the next 12 months.”
