The BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by TD SYNNEX has big goals for sustainability! In 2021 it became a zero-waste event, diverting 100% of all waste from landfills. They were able to set baselines in many other areas as well, such as WtE, carbon footprint, water consumption and more.

    Even more, is happening in 2022. The tournament is working on becoming a carbon-neutral event. Thanks to the support of Milliken & Co., Rabble Wine Co., and IAC Group the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by TD SYNNEX has partnered with TreesUpstate to do multiple tree giveaways throughout the year.

    The first Tree Giveaway in honor of Arbor Day:

    • Date: Saturday, April 30
    • Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm
    • Location: Roger Milliken Center – 920 Milliken Road, Spartanburg, SC

    The tournament has also partnered with the Hispanic Alliance, so you will see some changes in signage and social media this year. We are working on becoming an inclusive event and ensuring everyone feels welcomed. There will be bilingual volunteers, updates to the website featuring a Spanish section, and the signage at the tournament will be in Spanish and English.

    We are also working with One Acorn to ensure outreach in the community! They want to reach ALL communities and ensure access to everyone that is interested.

    There are many other great things happening before the tournament as well.

    In partnership with Keep OneSpartanburg Beautiful, we will be hosting a litter cleanup. Last year the tournament was able to help clean up 2260 pounds of litter!

    In honor of Earth Day, we will be cleaning up a section of roadway in Spartanburg.
