GREENSBORO - Fans across the country chose the ten finalists in the Wyndham Championship "Charity of Choice" awareness campaign, and the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Greenville was crowned the big winner Sunday.
"Wishes by Wyndham," a philanthropic
foundation and the official charity of the Wyndham Championship, will
donate one hundred thousand dollars to the charity.
There are 31 Hope Lodges around the
country, and each lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a
free place to stay when their best hope for effective treatment may be
in another city.
"This money is going
to go to refurbish our lodge which is a little over 11 years old and
needs to be refurbished for the benefit and enjoyment of our guests, "
says David Roscoe, manager of the Hope Lodge in Greenville.
This is the third year of the Wyndham Worldwide - Wyndham Championship "Charity of Choice" awareness campaign.
