Charity Golf Tournament Raises $102,075

Airport Community Partnerships, supported by Charlotte Douglas International Airport, raised a record $102,075 for Habitat for Humanity of the Charlotte Region’s planned neighborhood revitalization at the Meadows at Plato Price.

Over 30 companies, including American Airlines, Aviation Consulting Engineers, HMSHost, Paradies Lagardère, Edison Foard Construction, TYLin International and HNTB, sponsored the 2022 golf tournament, held May 2 at Ballantyne Country Club. The City of Charlotte Aviation Department served as an in-kind sponsor, providing staff support to the planning committee.

Airport Community Partnerships (ACP) is comprised of companies that operate out of, are based in, or have business with Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The Airport and its business partners come together through the ACP to make a difference in the community.

The Meadows at Plato Price is a nine-acre property on Morris Field Drive less than a mile from the Airport. Over the next three years, 40 new homes will be constructed by Habitat for Humanity staff and volunteers to provide affordable homeownership opportunities for hard-working families in the Charlotte region. The project will revitalize a historic Black neighborhood in West Charlotte and help address a critical shortage in affordable housing in the metro area.

The CLT Charity Golf Tournament has raised nearly $240,000 for local nonprofit organizations since it first teed off in 2019.
