With the Valero Texas Open returning to San Antonio this coming April, most will focus on the big names that will be heading down south, like Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. However, as the only PGA Tour Stop in Texas, the Valero Texas Open goes big when it comes to charity. In 2015, the stop became the fourth ever to reach a goal of raising $100 million, and in 2018, it surpassed that by raising a whopping $138 million. The course will also be decorated to showcase the numerous charities that the tournament will be supporting, specifically the entrance on the 17th fairway.
Some of these charities include Arms of Hope, Military Warriors Support Foundation, and San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind & Vision Impaired to name a few. To see the full list of charities that the tournament supports, visit the Valero Texas Open website at www.valerotexasopen.com.
