The Eddie Yeatts Memorial Foundation (a 501 c 3 charity), founded and directed by Blacksburg’s Chadd Yeatts, recently made charitable donations to three worthy endeavors following its primary fundraiser, a golf tournament. The tournament is supported by over 100 golfers throughout the Commonwealth and enjoys title sponsorships from many great companies, including Schnabel.
This year, over $12,000 was raised. Donations were made to Micah’s Closest (a clothing initiative for school age children), the Montgomery County Christmas Store (provides a dignified holiday shopping experience for qualifying families), and to the New River Valley Community College. The latter completes the endowment set up in Chadd’s father Eddie’s name. Each year, a worthy student receives tuition to pursue either a two-year associate degree or a vocational degree.
