Children's Hospital named single beneficiary of Regions Classic

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A special announcement comes from Regions Bank on Tuesday. For the first time, the bank has tapped just one organization to benefit from its annual golf classic: Children's Hospital.

In the past, several organizations shared the proceeds from the tournament, but this year, the bank decided choosing Children's Hospital would help them focus their resources.

"Children's, just like Regions, we operate out of the state of Alabama and it's a way to give back to the community and make life better and also do that through our children," says Bill Horton with Regions.

Other charities will still benefit from the classic through other related events like "birdies for charity" and a poster competition.
