fire when I was away for Christmas with my family,” said Tournament Director

degrees out and I had a 5-year-old daughter to take care of. The Red Cross was
there for me when I needed help the most, so I am very grateful that Evans can
give back to such an important and noble organization.”

families,” said Chip Cunningham, President of

had an enormous impact in my hometown of Houston, and as a volunteer I saw
firsthand how much their efforts mean to the families they support. I’ve never
worked with a more worthy charity or seen a staff so dedicated to those they
serve. As they continue to grow, I think it’s awesome that those plans include
our mid-Atlantic region.”
