The 2020 BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation officially launches the Tournament Week of Giving this morning at 10 AM with an online auction and a special check presentation. The BMW Charity Pro-Am Breakfast with Champions event featuring PGA Tour Champion Jay Haas and former Major League Baseball player Roger Clemens was originally scheduled to take place today but was cancelled along with the tournament. The event would have benefitted the Meyer Center and Cancer Society of Greenville County and many of the event sponsors wanted their funds to be reallocated to a direct donation to the two organizations.

“I was very much looking forward to being a part of this year’s BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation and the Breakfast with Champions event,” said Haas. “While this event unfortunately ended before it truly began, I am pleased we are still able to support these two wonderful organizations and look forward to participating in the event next year.”

The Tournament Week of Giving will continue with the online auction that launched this morning. It includes various local and regional experiences, exclusive trips, autographed sport memorabilia and much more. Items are available for bidding through Sunday, June 7, with some special items raffled during the week. Anyone wishing to participate in the online auction can find the link for the auction website by visiting or through the tournament social media channels on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Proceeds from the auction will benefit the six featured charities of the 20th anniversary tournament:
· Mobile Meals of Spartanburg
· Prisma Health Children’s Hospital – Upstate
· Roper Mountain Science Center
· The Cliffs Residents Outreach
· Cancer Society of Greenville County
· Meyer Center for Special Children
