NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — The American Red Cross of the Lowcountry received a check in July as one of the beneficiaries of the 15th Annual Spinx Charity Classic Golf Tournament, held in Greenville, S.C., in May.
During an event at one of its convenience stores in Greenville, Spinx president Stan Storti presented a check for $10,000 to representatives of the Red Cross of the Lowcountry.
“With our expansion into the Charleston market, we felt it was important to share our passion for giving back to the community with our new friends and neighbors in the Lowcountry,” Storti said.
Since its inception in 2001, the Spinx Charity Classic has donated nearly $1 million to local charities aligned with the Spinx corporate charitable mission, “Spinx & Kids! Mind, Body, Spirit. Growing healthy kids where we live, work and play!”
Spinx partners with nonprofit organizations in South Carolina who focus on improving children’s education, health, wellness and moral growth.
The American Red Cross-Upstate, Greenville Tech Foundation, Harvest Hope Food Bank and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas were the other 2015 charitable beneficiaries.
Based in Greenville, Spinx operates 79 convenience stores throughout South Carolina. Stewart Spinks founded the company in 1972.
