Hullco Heritage Foundation To Present $100,000 To Several Charities

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

For the sixth year, the Hullco Heritage Foundation has raised support for charities that benefit children and families in the Chattanooga area. During the 2017 sixth annual Hullco Heritage Foundation events, $100,000 was raised for the Hunter Worley Foundation, The Believe Campaign, The Pat Summitt Foundation, Restore Place, and The Jason Foundation, Inc.

Since the beginning of the Hullco Heritage Foundation in 2012, over $500,000 has been raised for various charities throughout the region. The $100,000 raised in this year’s events will be divided equally between the benefiting charities. 

“We are thrilled to see another great year of Hullco Heritage Foundation events in the books,” said Matt Hullander, founder of Hullco Heritage Foundation. “Through these events, we are able to raise awareness, support, and best of all, funding for local charities and organizations that depend on outside funds to operate.”

Checks will be presented on Thursday, at 5:30 p.m. at the Sponsor Reception hosted by Chattanooga Auto Square, home of Infiniti of Chattanooga; Jaguar Chattanooga; Land Rover Chattanooga; and, Porsche of Chattanooga. The reception will be held at Landrover Chattanooga, at 7648 Lee Highway, Chattanooga.

“Chattanooga Auto Square was honored to be one of the  sponsors for this year’s Hullco Heritage Classic,” said Steven Sconzo, executive general manager for Chattanooga Auto Square. “Chattanooga is a very giving community. We were proud to partner with others who volunteer their time and funds to organizations that make such a difference in our community.”

The sixth annual Hullco Heritage Classic took place on Oct. 16-17, and included a one-day Golf Tournament held at Council Fire Golf Club and a Concert and Silent Auction, which took place at Coker Tire Classic Auto Museum.
