MGM Resorts’ Charitable Effort
MGM Resorts International is producing the Chipping All-In in an effort to raise money for MGM Resorts’ Employee Emergency Grant Fund. The charitable organization will support the company’s employees and community partners impacted by COVID-19.
Proceeds from Chipping All-In will go to the MGM Resorts Foundation’s Employee Emergency Grant Fund, which provides employees and their immediate families with short-term relief in making payments or to meet obligations during unexpected hardships and emergencies.
The fund is designed to assist those impacted by the coronavirus, including full-time employees, on-call employees and those facing layoff, separation or furlough.
Lance Evans, senior vice president of Sports and Sponsorships for MGM Resorts, said, “It is in our DNA to offer live entertainment and sports experiences to fans worldwide, even in the toughest of times. ‘Chipping All-In’ will feature some of the world’s top PGA and LPGA players as well as sports and media personalities playing in support of the Employee Emergency Grant Fund.”
