Tower Family Foundation and Warriors4Wireless Benefit from T-Mobile’s 9th Annual Golf Tourney
Veterans, Tower Technicians & Families are Benefactors of a $2 Million Donation Made Possible through Generosity of the Wireless Industry
(Bellevue, Washington) – T-Mobile recently announced a jaw-dropping $2 million distribution to be shared equally by the Tower Family Foundation (TFF) and Warriors4Wireless (W4W) following the 9th Annual T-Mobile Golf Tournament. With more than 50 corporate sponsors supporting the 2022 event, the two industry non-profit benefactor organizations have now received more than $5.2 million from the annual fundraiser.
“The tournament has been successful every year because the sponsors step up to the plate and out-perform the previous year’s achievements. This is a testament to the industry – and especially a reflection of the valuable work conducted by the Tower Family Foundation and Warriors4Wireless,” said T-Mobile’s Chief Procurement Officer Mike Simpson.
The annual tournament results have increased every single year with proceeds going in equal amounts to TFF and W4W, as follows:
“Through this donation, T-Mobile and the 2022 sponsoring companies continue to raise the bar in their support of the industry’s technician workforce and their families,” said Tower Family Foundation President Jim Tracy. “This year’s contribution is the largest single donation in the history of the Tower Family Foundation and is certainly symbolic of the wireless industry’s track record of philanthropy. As a benefactor, the Tower Family Foundation is committed to being great stewards of this contribution as more than 97 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to industry workers and their families during times of need,” Tracy added.
“The industry-wide visibility T-Mobile and these tournament sponsors provide year-after-year has helped us grow the annual number of veterans assisted by 400%! This year’s effort will mean our support will go to more than 600 veterans,” said Warriors4Wireless President, CEO and Coach Kevin Kennedy. “There is no better career tradecraft for a veteran looking for a place in today’s workplace”
