Syngenta Donates to Help GCSAA Members Affected by Hurricanes

Syngenta has recently donated $10,000 to the Environmental Institute for Golf Hurricane Disaster Relief Program, which assists members of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) who were affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma during the devastating hurricane season of 2005.

The Environmental Institute for Golf Hurricane Disaster Relief Program distributes funds to help GCSAA members overcome personal losses from Hurricane Katrina and other storms. Donations to the program are tax-deductible. For more information, contact Teri Harris, GCSAA managing director of development, at (800) 472-7878, ext. 4465.

The donation was the latest from Syngenta in an ongoing effort to assist victims of the devastating storms. In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Syngenta donated $250,000 to the American Red Cross to provide food, shelter, water, basic living needs and medical aid to the Gulf Coast.

Besides announcing the donation to the Hurricane Disaster Relief Program, Syngenta also gave $1,500 to the Ken Venturi Research Fund at Loma Linda University Cancer Center in the California, in honor of former PGA golfer and retired CBS Sports golf analyst Ken Venturi.
