Donation Feeds Hungry

The Northwest Arkansas Food Bank received a $10,000 joint donation from the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G and Kraft Foods, and 2 tons of food Thursday.

The tournament has donated $500,000 to the Food Bank over the years, said Marge Wolf, president and chief executive officer.

Kraft employees handed her an envelope with $250 in it when she arrived at the golf course, Wolf said.

Dean General, president of the Walmart sales team at Kraft Foods, said an employee contest netted two tons of Kraft Foods product to donate, including peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, Velveeta dinners and Capri Sun drinks.

Part of the ticket price for admission to The Club presented by MasterCard went to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. The $275 Club hospitality option offers a three-day ticket and catering overlooking the 17th hole.
