YRC Worldwide sends High Hopes out on the road at Annual Golf Tournament

YRC Worldwide sends High Hopes out on the road at Annual Golf Tournament

The 50-foot truck will be unveiled on Monday, May 20, at High Hopes’ 10th Annual Giving on the Green golf tournament at Brentwood Country Club at 11:30am. Supporters will lay eyes on a custom design featuring smiling children and youth with and without special needs, representing the Inclusive Preschool and Pediatric Therapy Clinic at High Hopes. Representatives from YRC will be on hand as golfers view the High Hopes kids displayed on the truck before beginning play at noon. One of the children whose image is displayed will make opening remarks before players tee off. The truck will make a stop at High Hopes Preschool before the unveiling to deliver toys and items donated by YRC. Children will have a chance to take a picture or step inside the truck.

“High Hopes is humbled to have been selected by YRC Worldwide to receive this generous gift and we are delighted to have such broad exposure in the Middle Tennessee area. We anticipate more and more families becoming aware of the services and therapies that High Hopes offers. We are honored to partner with YRC Worldwide and look forward to more opportunities to work together,” said Gail Powell, Executive Director of High Hopes.
