For 2019, each of the 5 designated charities: Bella Vista Sunrise Rotary Club, Boys & Girls Club of Benton County, Bella Vista Animal Shelter, Bella Vista Courtesy Van and Village House, contributed items for the Silent Auction and recruited Pro-Am Tournament Teams. The charities collectively received $4,615 for these efforts. The designated charities also received a distribution of tournament net proceeds of $30,000 ($6,000 each). The Foundation will retain a reserve of a portion of the net proceeds for future events.
Charlie Teal, president of the Bella Vista Foundation praised the volunteers who welcomed the APT players to the tournament in Bella Vista, saying: “We have an amazing group of enthusiastic volunteers who donated their time to ensure that the APT players experience a first-class event. This third year of the tournament was our best yet.”
