Truckstop and travel plaza operators and industry suppliers joined together to support The NATSO Foundation at the NATSO Foundation Golf Tournament held during The NATSO Show.
More than 65 golfers took part in the event, which raised funds to support safety initiatives, such as Amber Alerts distributed in conjunction with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and scholarships for travel plaza employees and their families.

The foundation also focuses on industry research and has released a number of studies on the economic contributions of interstate businesses as well as sales and offerings at travel plazas. In addition, the foundation provides resources to help the travel plaza industry better serve customers, such as information on providing healthy food options and complying with new Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.
The tournament took place at The Club at Savannah Harbor, which is also the home to the PGA TOUR’s Champions Tour Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf Championship. The 18-hole course was created and designed by renowned architect Robert Cupp and “Slammin’ Sammy” Snead.
Golf committee volunteers spent hours to ensure the success of the event. Volunteers include Jeff Irwin, Exxon Mobil; Robert Lake, Randall-Reilly Publishing; Bill Mulligan, Pilot Flying J; Don Paddock, KSG Distributing; and Roger Phillips, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions.
The NATSO Foundation would like to thank its sponsors, which include Bridgestone Commercial Solutions, KSG Distributing, Exxon Mobil, Pilot Flying J, Randall-Reilly Publishing, Shell Lubricants and Terra Environmental Technologies (TET), a CF Industries Co.
