Charity spotlight: White River Valley Electric Trust Foundation


White River Valley Electric Trust Foundation has awarded more than $1.4 million in scholarships in the past 11 years to students in the cooperative’s service area of Christian, Douglas, Ozark, Taney and Stone counties.

“As part of our commitment to community, we are honored to be able to help area students in their efforts to earn a higher degree,” White River Valley Electric Cooperative’s CEO Chris Hamon said.  “It is thanks to our member-owners that we are able to provide this support.”

That generosity of spirit is why the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper (PCCC) is pleased to partner with the foundation again this August at the co-op’s Education and Energy Pro-Am at Ledgestone Country Club in Branson. The event is set for Sunday, August 7.

The PCCC is part of the PGA Tour’s annual Tour stop in Springfield.  The non-profit has gifted more than $13 million for children’s charities in the past 26 years.  If you would like to assist the PCCC, here are some great ways to do so:


  • BUSINESS SPONSORSHIPS: Businesses also can support the PCCC through various sponsorships, such as the skyboxes on the 9th and 18th greens (with food badges), on-course signage and events such as a dozen Pro-Ams.
