The United Family’s 22nd Annual Jacky Pierce Charity Classic Raises $250,000 For Area United Way Chapters

A charity golf tournament orchestrated by an area supermarket chain has raised funds for area charities.

The 22nd annual Jacky Pierce Charity Classic was held by The United Family and United Supermarkets on August 25th and 26th.

At the event, $250,000 was raised, with more than $88,000 going to the Lubbock Area United Way.

The rest of the funds went to 14 other United Way organizations in Texas. The funds were awarded on a percentage basis according to store sales in the region served by each United Way.

“The United Family is grateful for all the work the Lubbock Area United Way does in our community,” said Matt Bumstead, co-president of the United Family and president of the United Supermarkets Community Foundation.

Bumstead continued, saying “In contributing these resources to United Way, we are supporting their mission of creating long-lasting community change by addressing the underlying causes of the most significant local issues.”

The tournament has now raised more than $2.8 million for local charities since its inception in 1991.

The event was named in honor of Jacky Pierce, The United Family’s longtime produce director, who guided the annual golf tournament until he died of cancer in 2002. The tournament was renamed in his honor in 2003.
