PRESS RELEASE: DALLAS, TEXAS (October 8, 2013) – Starpower Home Entertainment Systems, Inc. (“Starpower”) hosted the 12th Annual VIP Invitational Charity Golf Tournament at Gentle Creek Golf Club, Prosper, Texas, on September 16, 2013. Attendees included executives from top electronics, appliances and flooring companies, as well as celebrity athletes such as Michael Finley, Mark Aguirre and honorary guest Daryl, “Moose” Johnston, former Dallas Cowboys fullback and current NFL Analyst, to mention a few. Each year the honorary guest selects the charity to benefit.
On hole 15, Steven Pidgeon, CEO of StarFloors, Inc., shot a hole-in-one and was awarded $10,000 and another $10,000 was a matched award to the North Texas Food Bank. Tony Dorsett, former Dallas Cowboys’ Running Back and Pro Football Hall of Famer, was a witness to the hole in one. As one of the most proactive non-profits in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, The North Texas Food Bank provides nutrition relief across 13 counties, with almost 175,000 meals prepared for children, families and seniors each day.
“I took one swing— no practice swing—and it hit before the hole and rolled right in,” said Steven Pidgeon. “Tony Dorsett was my witness along with others.”
Steven and Leslie Pidgeon have graciously donated their prize money in its entirety to the North Texas Food Bank as well, bringing the non-profit’s donation to $20,000. “Leslie and I are proud to support the North Texas Food Bank and are excited to be able to donate this money to such a great cause.”
The $20,000 donation will be able to provide the North Texas Food Bank with 60,000 meals. “This donation comes at an opportune time as the food bank attempts to keep up with the great demand for meals across 13 counties. This gift will make a brighter day possible for many right here in our own neighborhoods,” said Jan Pruitt, President and CEO of North Texas Food Bank.
The Pidgeons and Daryl Johnston will present the check to North Texas Food Bank on Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. at the North Dallas Starpower Showroom at 15340 Dallas Parkway, Ste. 1000 Dallas, TX 75248. The media is invited to attend.
