Funds from PHI Community Foundation Event to Help Low-Income Families Stay Warm
WASHINGTON, D.C. -Thomas H. Graham, President of the PHI (Pepco Holdings, Inc.) Community Foundation, will present a $75,000 check to the Greater Washington Urban League Tuesday at the Urban League's 14th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament at the Country Club at Woodmore in Mitchellville, Md.
Equal checks ($75,000 each) will be given to the Interfaith Works, Community Ministry of Montgomery County, and United Communities Against Poverty in Prince George's County. The money will help low-income individuals and families in Washington, D.C., Prince George's County and Montgomery County pay their energy bills - gas or electric - so they can stay warm during this winter. The funds were raised during the annual Pepco Golf and Tennis Classic sponsored by the PHI Community Foundation.
"Our theme is 'Help Turn Up the Heat for Deserving Families,'" Graham said. "I want to thank all our business and community partners who made it possible for the PHI Community Foundation to make a substantial contribution to an extremely worthy cause."
The annual PHI Community Foundation fund raiser held Sept. 10 has raised more than $1.5 million over the last seven years through sponsorships from business and community leaders of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Among this year's top business sponsors were Asplundh, ABB, IBM and Utilimap.
