Boar's Head Resort Charities and Community
A Dedicated Community Member
As a proud community member with a deep appreciation of Virginia's rich history and a passion for its bright future, Boar's Head makes the majority of our annual contributions to regional organizers. Each of the hundreds of donation requests we receive each year is considered based upon the policies and procedures established by Boar's Head Donations Review Committee
In addition to our annual donations, we participate in a number of local events and organizations, such as:
The mission of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is to eliminate the incurability of Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, and to enhance the care and support for individuals, their families, and caregivers affected by Alzheimer's disease. There are 5.3 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease, and it is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.
Annual Turkey Trot - bringing together approximately 1,300 local Charlottesville residents on Thanksgiving for a unique combination of a 5K road race, costume party, and baby jogger parade. Since its inception, The Boar's Head has proudly raised more than $600,000 to benefit the University of Virginia Children's Hospital.
"This is truly a unique, community-oriented event," said Mark Lorenzoni, Co-Owner of Ragged Mountain Running Store. "It's always inspiring to see the turnout each year, especially when you see multi-generational family members participating together. What brings me back each year, though, is donating my time and help to an event that benefits a charity like the UVA Children's Hospital."
Annual Bill Howard Golf Tournament - Birdwood hosted this event to benefit one of our primary philanthropies, the Alzheimer's Association.
Special Olympics - For many years, this has remained a main philanthropic event for the golf course and sports club at The Boar's Head, which organizes, hosts, and coaches the program.
Boyd Tinsley Foundation - Offering host facilities and sponsorship of the Boyd Tinsley USTA Tennis Championships, as well as offering facilities and instruction for children during our summer program.
Habitat for Humanity - The Boar's Head team contributed time and money to the Habitat for Humanity, our non-profit of choice for 2008.
Annual Motorcycle Ride - In 2009, we held our 4th Annual Motorcycle Ride to benefit one of our primary philanthropies, the Alzheimer's Association.
