MANCHESTER, Conn. - More than $400,000 was raised July 19 as hundreds of participants joined the Bob's Discount Furniture Charitable Foundation, along with partner Planned Furniture Promotions, for a golf event and dinner assisting children's charities and other service organizations throughout the region.
The 24th annual Bob's Golf Outing at the Tunxis Plantation Country Club in Farmington, Conn., was followed by a dinner event, awards ceremony and auctions at The Farmington Club.
"This has become an annual tradition, and we're so pleased with the turnout by our business partners and friends because the nonprofit organizations that will be helped by the event need it more than ever," said Gene Rosenberg, co-founder of Planned Furniture Promotions and Bob's Discount Furniture. "We're truly gratified by the generosity of all of those supporting this year's event."
Based here, Bob's, which operates 42 stores in the New England region and in New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Virginia, and its employees have supported hundreds of nonprofit organizations with sponsorships and charitable contributions over the years.
