The Volvo Car Open has teamed up with long-time event partner Truist to raise funds and awareness for MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital during its event, April 5th to 11th on Daniel Island. The tournament will be held without fans this year due to the ongoing pandemic.
Truist will sponsor a new fundraising initiative at this year’s Volvo Car Open called ‘Swing For A Cause’. All match winners on Althea Gibson Club Court will have three attempts to hit a target 35 feet up in the air. Each time that a player is successful, $100 will be donated to the children’s hospital. Truist has set a goal to raise $10,000 for the children’s hospital by Sunday, April 11th.
“Truist has been a proud partner of the Volvo Car Open for more than 10 years,” said Bob Moran, Volvo Car Open Tournament Director. “As we unfortunately cannot have fans with us on-site this year, Truist has developed a creative plan to raise funds for our charities by having our players transition from hitting tennis balls into our crowds to hitting a charitable target. We feel fortunate to have a great partner who is wanting to support our local Charleston community through our tournament.”
All of the target contests will be aired live on Tennis Channel, starting April 5th.
“Truist is proud to partner with the Volvo Car Open on the ‘Swing for a Cause’ initiative,” said Mike Brenan, South Carolina Regional President at Truist. “Supporting the Charleston community and the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital is an example of how we deliver on our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities. We are thrilled the Volvo Car Open will be back in action this year and are honored to play a part in bringing women’s tennis to the Charleston area.”
