Principal Charity Classic 2022 giving exceeds $8.2M for children’s charities


The Principal Charity Classic announced that its 2022 tournament raised more than $8.2 million in support of Iowa children’s charities, surpassing the event’s previous record of $7.3 million set in 2021. The annual PGA Tour Champions event in Des Moines has now raised more than $45.6 million for Iowa children’s charities since Principal Financial Group became the title sponsor in 2007. “We continue to see overwhelming generosity from our sponsors, volunteers and spectators,” said Dan Houston, chairman, president, and CEO at Principal. “The impact of this year’s tournament will have a lasting effect on young people in Iowa. In addition to world-class golf, my favorite part of the tournament every year is meeting some of the children who benefit from this wonderful community event. I am so proud we have this opportunity to support the efforts of our charity partners.” Tournament proceeds provide support to four Tournament Charity Partners in the Des Moines area: Blank Children’s Hospital, MercyOne Children’s Hospital, the United Way of Central Iowa, and Variety – the Children’s Charity of Iowa. Additionally, the event’s Birdies For Charity program supports nearly 90 nonprofits throughout the state of Iowa. A video recap of the golf tournament can be found at this link.
