Eagle Classic picks FeedMore as charity recipient

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - With the call to action "Drive Hunger out of Central Virginia", this year's Eagle Classic has selected FeedMore as the charity it will help to raise money for this August.

FeedMore is the umbrella organization for the Central Virginia Food Bank, Meals on Wheels Serving Central Virginia and the Community Kitchen.

The Eagle Classic is the Symetra professional women's golf tournament taking place the week of August 13th at the Richmond Country Club.

The Eagle Companies selected FeedMore as the tournament charity because "of the tremendous local impact of the organization, which provides comprehensive hunger relief to thousands of children, seniors, and families throughout the region," it announced in a press release.

The Eagle Classic will include an entire week of events which will help raise money for FeedMore, including a "Meet the Pros" party and a silent auction.

Last year, the Eagle Classic raised over $15,000 for last year's charity, the VCU Massey Center.

For the fifth year of the Eagle Classic, more than 144 professional golfers from throughout the United States and 36 countries will travel to Richmond to compete for a $100,000 purse and a card to play in the LPGA.
