Annual CoreCivic Foundation Charity Golf Classic Raises $550K for 33 Nashville Charities


Event supports charities serving former offenders, victims of crime, and youth

CoreCivic held its annual Charity Golf Classic on Oct. 6 at the Hermitage Golf Course in Old Hickory, Tennessee. The Charity Golf Classic raised $550,000 this year – funds that will go to a group of 33 non-profit organizations supporting formerly incarcerated individuals, victims of crime and abuse, and underserved youth. More than $7 million has been raised for charity since the event’s inception in 1991.

“For more than 30 years, this event has allowed us to make a meaningful difference in our community,” said Tony Grande, CoreCivic Charitable Foundation Chairman. “As we continue to see growth in the Greater Nashville area, our non-profit partners face the ongoing challenge of meeting the needs of such a growing population. We recognize these needs, and it is important that we continue to support these organizations so they can equip our communities with crucial resources and care.”
