Fluor Celebrates 25 Years of Golf for Greenville

IRVING, Texas & GREENVILLE, S.C. --(Business Wire)--

Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) today marked the 25-year anniversary of its Golf for Greenville charitable golf tournament that has raised more than $3.5 million to assist local community organizations.

Today's event at Fluor's Greenville, S.C., campus included representatives from the local charitable organizations that have benefitted from the golf tournament over the past 25 years along with Fluor executives and local elected officials.

Golf for Greenville was developed and founded by Fluor employee volunteers in 1989 with the first tournament held in 1990. Countless volunteer hours go into organizing the tournament and soliciting donations. Recently, Golf for Greenville events have had overwhelming support from Fluor employees and suppliers and frequently include sell-out tournaments. The record turnouts have encouraged Fluor to raise its fundraising goals each year as support continues to grow. The event is chaired and co-chaired by Fluor professionals as a leadership enrichment opportunity for those employees.
