In light of the recent devastation to the Islands of the Bahamas as a result of Hurricane Dorian, and the family’s significant ties to the island nation, The Thompson Family Foundation has decided to dedicate 100% of the 2nd Annual Thompson Family Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament proceeds to ongoing relief efforts throughout the Bahamas. Additionally, the Foundation will match all of the proceeds raised from the event.
“I am extremely saddened by the destruction of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. When my family and I started this foundation, a main goal was to support my father’s home country, a place that has many lasting memories for us. Now, they need our help more than ever. We will be focused on not only the short-term, but also the long-term relief, while working with local personnel to provide impactful support to the area and people in need.” – Klay Thompson
The Foundation is sending representatives to the area to support the relief efforts and will continue to provide updates on ways to contribute to the recovery.
