altPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida (PGA Tour) — At a celebration tonight honoring Northeast Florida charities supported by THE PLAYERS Championship, PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem announced that $7.5 million was generated for local charities from the 2014 tournament, surpassing last year's record-breaking total of $7.1 million. The money generated by THE PLAYERS each year benefits more than 300 charities throughout Northeast Florida, totaling approximately $67.5 million in charitable giving since the event moved to Ponte Vedra Beach in 1977. The substantial increases over the past few years are attributed to a growing, dedicated fan base; support from the event's Proud Partner – PwC; and the tireless and selfless efforts of the tournament's volunteer force.
