HILTON HEAD, S.C. (WTOC) - The Heritage Classic Foundation announced the 2022 RBC raised 1.6 million dollars spread across their nearly 80 charitable partners, one of them being at The Children’s Center.

“The money that we get from them we put toward tuition assistance.”

The leader of the Foundation behind almost 50 million dollars over the last few decades says getting to help organizations like this The Children’s Center is what it’s all about.

“That’s why we do and the Heritage Classic Foundation does what we do is for the bottom line and giving back to charity and there’s been a couple lean years,” Heritage Classic Foundation President Steve Wilmot said.

“We’re just not a golf tournament in April, we have programs throughout the course of the year that we support.”
