TOURNAMENT BENEFICIARIES

Giving back is at the heart of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic. The Gwinnett Championship Foundation, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to contribute positively to the quality of life in Gwinnett County and provide a positive economic impact to the community.  Net proceeds from our tournament are donated to two primary beneficiaries who are selected annually.

Across three hospitals and multiple neighborhood locations, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is the leader for pediatric healthcare in Georgia. For more than 100 years, our purpose has been the same: making kids better today and healthier tomorrow.

What started in 1915 in two rented cottages with 20 beds has grown into one of the nation’s pre-eminent pediatric healthcare systems with world-class professionals and a leading research program. For more than a century, they have fought to ensure all children have access to the specialized care they need.

Consistently ranked among the top children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, they provide access to more than 2,100 pediatric physicians and allied health practitioners across more than 60 pediatric programs. Their system represents a committed movement of more than 11,500 employees and more than 10,000 volunteers.

For more than 30 years Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett has served children and young adults with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities through a PreK-12 school and Young Adults Learning Life Skills (YALLS) day program.

What began with four preschool students in a converted storage closet has grown to a new school building serving more than 70 school students and 20 young adults.  Dedicated to an individual approach to education and a focus on academic, emotional, and personal growth, combined with on-site therapeutic services, SNS allows students to thrive while creating the foundation for a life filled with joy and purpose.

Uniquely positioned to meet the educational needs of families during the pandemic, they continue to work to set a new standard of educational excellence today while working to grow to meet the demand for all who wish to call SNS home in the future.
