The H-E-B Tournament of Champions was established in 1986 when Decker Food Company asked H-E-B Grocery Co. to invite a few of their market vendors to play in a golf tournament and donate the proceeds to Special Olympics Texas. The President of Decker Foods was the Chairman of the Board for Special Olympics Texas at that time. The event raised $38,500. The following year the event raised $78,000 and in 2016 $8.4 million – a new record!
Over the past 31 years, this event has raised over $90 million dollars benefiting Special Olympics Texas and other worthwhile organizations that focus on children, youth and education throughout the State of Texas.
In 2003 the H-E-B Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust was established and the event became a 501(c)3 tax exempt private foundation under the Internal Revenue codes.
Thank you H-E-B Tournament of Champions for your ongoing support - since 2009! - for the students and families at Literacy Advance!
