$15,000 Donated to the Palmer Home for Children

Memphis Fundraiser Palmer Home For Children

June 15, 2018 – Summit Truck Group of Memphis TN held their 16th Annual Golf Tournament in Collierville TN on June 8th. For the second year, Summit offered various sponsorship levels to select suppliers to help fund the tournament, with a percentage of all money raised going to charity. This year, the Memphis team selected the Palmer Home for Children as the recipient of funds raised through the golf tournament. A total of $15,000 was raised for this charity and, recently, several Summit staff presented the check to representatives from the Palmer Home for Children.

The Palmer Home has two campuses — one located in Columbus MS and the other in Hernando MS. Their mission is to provide superior residential care for children and they are committed to serving every aspect of those children’s lives. Children on each campus are placed in a home usually with seven other children and receive guidance and love there from two caregivers.

Donating to such a great cause would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors. This year, Summit received an outpouring of response from these suppliers:  Bendix, BMO, CDK, Commercial Fleet Finance, Compass, Cummins, Delco Remy, Eaton, Fleetguard, Fleetrite, Fontaine, Isuzu, Meritor, Mission Financial, Mobil Delvac, Morgan Corp., Navistar, Premium 2000, Purkey’s Electric, Shepherd Insurance, S&S Sales, Weller Truck Parts, Wells Fargo, and Wilro.

Summit’s annual golf tournament provides a great opportunity for Summit’s employees to interact with customers in a more informal setting, as well as for both Summit sales teams and customers to meet with key suppliers. Summit appreciates our customers, employees, and supplier partners who helped Summit raise money for the Palmer Home for Children this year. We look forward to holding this event again next year.
