Back in 2010 Terry Cavanaugh, President of Erie Insurance, started the Erie Insurance Charity Golf Classic. This week at a modified classic tournament Terry said thank you to all the businesses that have supported this effort in the past. In doing so he indicated that the program had raised $500,000 for local Charities. Toward this effort Builders Hardware and McBrier Properties lead by Jim McBrier have played for 4 years in support of the Erie Yacht Club Foundation. Yesterday Erie Insurance said thank you to everyone by presenting checks for $3,000 each to over 20 charities that have been supported by local business in this matching challenge. Thank you Erie Insurance and Terry Cavanaugh for making this possible and your contributions of over $5,000 in the past years to the Needs Based Scholarship Fund of the Erie Yacht Club Foundation from this Challenge.
