The 2016 Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships
The Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships were held Saturday June 25, 2016! We had a great time partnering with Clarke Capital Partners for this 2016 Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships Tennis Tournament which hosted amateur golf and tennis events with members of our beautiful community. Thank you to all who participated!
Among the most meaningful aspects of our Championships is its charitable component. In the inaugural year, the program raised $150,000 nationwide for charity. These funds support many worthwhile charitable organizations and many are located within dealers’ communities. This year we supported The Dyslexia Center of Utah.
The Dyslexia Center of Utah is a non-profit tutoring center for students who are challenged with the most prominent language-processing disorder: Dyslexia.
10-15% of the US population has dyslexia, but only five out of every hundred dyslexics receive assistance. Without the proper diagnosis and help, many dyslexics are only functionally literate and part of the 44 million adults with only the lowest level of literacy, limiting their ability to find jobs to function independently within their communities. — Dyslexia Research Institute
The Dyslexia Center of Utah’s vision is to provide every dyslexic child the chance to excel. The Dyslexia Center of Utah is determined to give all children, regardless of income, the gift of literacy and an opportunity for a bright future by offering scholarships to families of dyslexic students.
We’d like to thank Clarke Capital Partners, our Presenting Sponsor for the Tournament! Clarke Capital is a family office investment firm focused on alternative assets, hedge funds, early-stage university-licensed/acquired technologies, and growth equity.
