Market Street and United Supermarkets to present North Texas Area United Way with check for $35,902

WICHITA FALLS, Texas — The United Family has once again raised $500,000 for 28 United Way chapters through its 30th Annual Jacky Pierce Charity Classic (JPCC) golf tournament, which took place in August. The North Texas Area United Way is receiving $35,902 of the total raised.

Since its inception in 1991, the JPCC golf tournament has raised more than $5,000,000 for non-profit organizations across The United Family’s trade areas.

Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family, said this tournament has grown over the last 30 years to include some 500 golfers and a tremendous amount of charitable giving.

“The Jacky Pierce Charity Classic has become an iconic event for our company and its mission of giving back to our communities,” Hopper said. “We cannot underestimate the immense impact these funds have on the thousands of families the United Way helps. The United Way does a phenomenal job making a positive impact across our communities.”

The tournament was named in honor of the longtime produce director for United Supermarkets, Jacky Pierce, who guided the annual golf tournament from its infancy until losing a lengthy battle with cancer.

“This tournament means a lot to us because not only are we supporting an incredible cause, but we are able to do it by collaborating with our awesome vendor partners,” Hopper said. “None of it would be possible without those relationships we have with them. They make this thing go.”
