DETROIT - Buick has now raised more than $26 million for local charities through its title-sponsored PGA Tour events.

The Buick Open has generated $5.8 million for Flint area charities since 1982, including a record $554,000 from the 2002 Buick Open. The Buick Invitational (since 1992) has generated more than $4.7 million for local charities in the San Diego area, including a record $877,000 in 2002. The Buick Classic has now raised $13.3 million since 1990- including a record $1.2 million in 2002. Previously sponsored tournaments, including the Buick Challenge (Pine Mountain, Ga.) and the Tampa Bay Classic presented by Buick, donated more than 2.3 million dollars to local charities in those markets.

After all of the bills are paid for each of Buick's PGA Tour events, the remaining proceeds go to charity.

"As one of the leading national contributors to charity, golf gives us the opportunity to give back to the community in our tournament markets and support a number of worthwhile causes," said Larry Peck, golf marketing manager for Buick. "We look forward to continuing to increase our contributions in the years ahead."

Buick's three title-sponsored PGA Tour events are: the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, Calif. (Feb. 10-16); the Buick Classic at Westchester Country Club in Harrison, N.Y. (June 16-22); and the Buick Open at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc, Mich. (July 28-Aug. 3)
