The Tower Family Foundation reported yesterday that T-Mobile is set to donate $310,000 to the Tower Family Foundation (TFF) resulting from the “Un-carrier’s” 7th Annual Golf Invitational – a record-setting success for 2020 achieved without actually holding a physical event.
This year’s Un-Tourney was sponsored by T-Mobile’s Chief Procurement Officer & Senior Vice President Mike Simpson and his Procurement & Supply team. With 24 wireless industry sponsors for 2020, total proceeds distributed to TFF since 2014 now exceed $900,000.
“My team and our wireless industry corporate sponsors look at the golf tournament as a labor of love,” said Simpson. “Our focus is on TFF and Warriors4Wireless – two non-profit organizations that provide great services to the men and women that build and maintain America’s largest 5G network. With more than $1.8 million provided since 2014, we’re already excited about 2021’s 8th annual tournament.”
“Words alone don’t express how humbled and grateful our organization is in being a benefactor of a contribution this size,” stated Tower Family Foundation President Victor Drouin from Pembroke, NH. “Through these monies, T-Mobile and the Un-Tourney sponsoring companies demonstrated a philanthropic, generous spirit that has become a hallmark of the wireless industry. As a benefactor, the Tower Family Foundation is continuing its great stewardship of these funds as more than 97 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to industry workers and their families during times of need,” Drouin added.
The Tower Family Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that provides financial assistance and scholarships to family members of a severely injured, permanently disabled, or deceased tower worker injured or killed in an accident stemming from working at heights on communication structures.
