CYPRESS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Elevator and Escalator Division of Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., headquartered in Cypress, California, hosted its second charity golf tournament on Wednesday, November 10, benefitting Folds of Honor and Warrior Dog Foundation.
The tournament hosted nearly 150 Mitsubishi Electric US business partners, vendors and employee volunteers at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, California. The event raised $60,000 from sponsorship opportunities, player registrations, donations, and matching grant funding from the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation.
“In 2019, with everyone’s help and contributions we were able to support wounded veterans,” says Jarrad Jones, Southern California branch manager for the Elevator and Escalator Division. “We had to skip 2020 due to pandemic restrictions and we are very excited to be able to pick up where we left off. We are grateful to all who have contributed to two amazing nonprofits, Folds of Honor and Warrior Dog Foundation.”
Folds of Honor, which will receive $30,000 from the event, provides educational scholarships to the families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the United States Armed Forces. Support for Folds of Honor helps children in grades K-12 with private educational tuition and tutoring, as well as higher education assistance for spouses and dependents.
The Warrior Dog Foundation, which will also receive $30,000 from the event, offers the highest level of retirement care to military working dogs who have dedicated their lives to serving the country and community. By providing mental and physical rehabilitation, these K9s, that would otherwise be euthanized, are rehomed. Mitsubishi Electric US is a proud supporter of both nonprofit organizations.
