CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 11, 2014) — Griffin Brothers Tires, Wheels & Auto Repair raised more than $85,000 for charity at its sixth annual “Chip’n for Children” golf tournament held recently at Pine Island Country Club in Charlotte.
More than 100 golfers from various organizations and civic groups participated in the tournament, Cornelius, N.C.-based Griffin Brothers said.
All proceeds from this year’s tournament stayed in the community to help support the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte (BBBSGC) and related facilities. BBBSGC is 100-percent community funded, according to Griffin Brothers. It costs $1,000 to match and support one child with an adult mentor for one year.
The dealership began the Chip’n for Children tournament in 2009 to help raise money for local charities and organizations. This is the third year Griffin Brothers partnered with the BBBSGC, an affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
The company also partners with the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, donating money, goods and service time throughout the year.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
