Penta Cares raises money for nonprofits

The Penta Building Group’s charitable arm, The Penta Cares Foundation, raised $220,000 for four Southern Nevada nonprofits during its recent 19th Annual Charity Golf Classic at Revere Golf Club. The event welcomed 296 golfers representing 75 companies, vendors and clients.

As a result of the event, Penta Cares donated $55,000 to each of the four nonprofits: NV Childhood Cancer Foundation, Women’s Development Center, NV Military Support Alliance and Opportunity Village. The annual funds raised by Penta Cares helps to support critical services for each organization.

“At Penta, we believe a good company is made up of good people who care about the world around them,” said Penta President John Cannito. “That’s why are proud to host our Charity Golf Classic every year. Since 2005, we’ve partnered with our clients, trade partners, vendors and Penta Cares volunteers to raise nearly $2 million for local nonprofits through this annual event.”

Funds raised from the event will go toward several local noteworthy causes, including the support of chronically ill children and their caregivers, Nevada military veterans and their families, at-risk and homeless families and people with disabilities.

Over the course of more than two decades, Penta Cares has donated more than $10 million to 350 charities companywide, and each year Penta employees and their families volunteer thousands of hours to nonprofit organizations in Las Vegas, Southern California and Phoenix.
