Wyndham Championship Makes $100,000 Charitable Donation

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Wyndham Championship has made its second annual contribution to Randleman, North Carolina-based Victory Junction Gang Camp. Wyndham Worldwide, the tournament’s title sponsor, presented a check for $100,000 to camp executives at the Opening Ceremony as a part the company’s multi-year sponsorship of the Wyndham Championship. The official charity of the Wyndham Championship, Victory Junction Gang Camp enriches the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun, and empowering, in a safe and medically-sound environment.

“We are extremely excited and honored to again make a significant donation to the Victory Junction Gang Camp and continue our tradition of supporting local charities in the Piedmont Triad,” said Mark Brazil, Wyndham Championship tournament director. “There is a long history of support for the Camp that makes an extraordinary impact for our community but also for the thousands of families who they serve each year.”

Victory Junction Gang provides life-changing camp experiences to children with health issues, such as cancer, arthritis, hemophilia, diabetes and physical disabilities. Campers can enjoy fun and exciting activities like fishing, swimming, Wyndham Championship mini golf, arts & crafts and more, all within a medically-sound environment. The Camp was opened in 2004 by Pattie and Kyle Petty in honor of their late son Adam.

“It is such a privilege to receive another donation from the Wyndham Championship because it not only helps us expand our programs but it also highlights our services to a national audience,” said Pattie Petty, chairman and co-founder of the Victory Junction Gang. “The support from the tournament, our local community as well as from Wyndham Worldwide ensures we continue serving as many children as possible in addition to acquiring new supporters and volunteers who are essential to our operations.”
Wyndham Worldwide, through its multi-year commitment as title sponsor of the Wyndham Championship, has a long-term commitment to the Camp and maintains a strong relationship with the Victory Junction Gang Camp. “Our involvement with Victory Junction Gang Camp has been a tremendously rewarding experience for us at Wyndham Worldwide,” said Stephen Holmes, chairman and CEO of Wyndham Worldwide. “We remain committed to the Camp and the families its serves, as well as to the Greensboro community.” In addition to the company’s ties to the Camp it also has an affiliation with the Petty family, including the co-development of Richard Petty Race Vacations and an associate sponsor of Petty Enterprises #43 Cheerios/Betty Crocker Dodge.
