Wyndham Championship

Boys and Girls Homes is one of only 10 charities competing to win $100,000 at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro!

Initially, we were selected as one of 22 nonprofits in the state to participate in Wyndham’s “Charity of Choice” campaign based on our mission to improve the lives of children. As of July 27, we are a top-10 finalist in the competition to receive the $100,000 due to the number of online votes we secured! Now that we are a finalist, on-site voting will take place during the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro to determine the winner.

This is where YOU come in! We need you to help us get the word out about this exciting and rare opportunity. We ask that you would please consider:
