NEWS: Jimmie Johnson Foundation Golf Tournament presented by Lowe's Raises an Event Record $900,000

June 24, 2015

SAN DIEGO –  The Jimmie Johnson Foundation announced today that its annual Jimmie Johnson Foundation Golf Tournament and Dinner raised $900,000, an event record.

“This is such a great event,” said Johnson. “Chani (wife) and I are so thankful to everyone that supports us and to sponsors like Lowe’s, that believe in supporting the vision of the Foundation. We are excited that the Foundation can continue funding projects that address critical needs in K-12 public schools.”

Johnson, a six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, hosted more than 125 golfers at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California for Wednesday’s golf tournament. The night before the tournament, the Johnsons hosted approximately 200 guests at a special dinner and auction, with live music from Darius Rucker at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. 

The tournament, which in nine years has raised more than $5.6 million, benefits the Champions Grants program, a partnership between the Jimmie Johnson Foundation and Lowe’s Toolbox for Education. The grants range from $25,000-$100,000 and are distributed to K-12 public schools in Chandra and Jimmie Johnson’s hometowns in California and Oklahoma, and where they currently reside in North Carolina.
