The Jimmie Johnson Foundation announced Wednesday that it has raised nine hundred thousand dollars through its annual golf tournament and related
events held this week at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California. Tuesday night’s dinner and auction preceded Wednesday’s golf outing. In nine years, the tournament has raised more than five-point-six million dollars for the “Champion’s Grant” program – a partnership between Johnson’s foundation and long-time NASCAR sponsor Lowe’s.
Grants range from twenty-five thousand to one hundred thousand dollars and are distributed to public schools in Chandra and Jimmie Johnson’s respective hometowns in Oklahoma and California, in addition to North Carolina – where they currently reside.
