big rock charitable giving reaches $6.5 million.

The Big Rock Board of Directors and its Charity Committee have committed to a core group of charities in the community to receive consistent funding from the tournament. The entire process is driven by the fit between Big Rock’s five-point mission statement and the destination of the charitable funds. In addition to these yearly donations, the board also reviews new larger impact community projects. These donations are funded by the success of the tournament, our sponsors and retail sales.
 In 2020 the Big Rock Board was able to contribute $99,500 to their annual core donations and $551,000 to other charities in need.
