Due to the Flood, the Greenbrier Classic is Cancelled; However the Greenbrier Offers Assistance to Flood Victims

Real Estate Agent with Perry Wellington Realty, Adam Conrad, Broker WV0026375

PGA TOUR and The Greenbrier officials announced that The Greenbrier Classic, scheduled for July 7-10, has been canceled due to the devastating flooding caused by record rainfalls throughout West Virginia.  Greenbrier County, where The Greenbrier is located, has been particularly hard-hit by torrential rains. The Old White TPC, host course for the tournament, suffered extensive damage from the flooding and is beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament TOUR officials said. Below photos show the before (bottom), and the flooding.

Due to the increased need for medical attention as a result of the flooding throughout Greenbrier County and beyond, The Greenbrier will keep Greenbrier Care and The Greenbrier Clinic open throughout the weekend for anybody who needs medical care.


Greenbrier Care, located on Kate's Mountain Road, across the street from The Greenbrier's main entrance, will opened June 25 and will  be open on Sunday, June 26 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Normal 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. hours will resume on Monday.


The Greenbrier Clinic physicians will also come to Greenbrier Care, ensuring that at least three doctors are available to see patients at all times. Greenbrier Care will have at least 100 tetanus vaccines by 6 p.m., Saturday and more will be coming Sunday morning. TO CONTACT GREENBRIER CARE, CALL 304-536-4870

THE GREENBRIER IS OPENING ITS DOOR TO PROVIDE SHELTER TO THOSE IN NEED. In its continued efforts to help those impacted by the heavy flooding throughout West Virginia, The Greenbrier is offering a limited number of guest rooms and meals to those who have been impacted by the flood waters and have no other place to stay. The rooms are being offered to anyone who does not have a place to sleep during this tragedy and will be available as long as The Greenbrier is closed for business. These rooms will be offered on a complimentary basis and on a first-come, first served basis.


"Due to all of the damage we received from the storm, we aren't able to provide The Greenbrier experience that our guests expect," said Jim Justice, Owner and CEO, The Greenbrier. "But we can certainly provide a comfortable room for those who are hurting and need a place to go."


At this time, The Greenbrier remains without hot water, but flood victims who come to stay will be provided with a room, as well as food from The Depot, The Greenbrier's Team Member cafeteria.  


"We just hope that by providing a good meal and a comfortable and safe place to spend the night that we can help ease the pain just a little to those who are suffering so much from this unbelievable disaster," said Justice.


Those wishing to stay in these accommodations must meet eligibility requirements and must call The Greenbrier's Emergency Housing Hotline at 304-536-1110.


Thanks so much to Jim Justice for helping the families that have lost their homes, possessions and even loved ones. The outpouring of support from the Greebrier, churches, organizations, and neighbors from all over has been incredible.  However there is so much more to be done. This area really needs your support.


The Greenbrier’s Neighbors Loving Neighbors campaign is collecting both food and cash to help the flood’s victims get back on their feet. Anyone interested in helping with this initiative is asked to contact the Greenbrier County Emergency Shelter at 304-645-6999 or mail monetary donations to 3584 Davis Stuart Road, Lewisburg, WV, 24901. Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at The Greenbrier at The Greenbrier Sports Performance Center, just across the street from the main property on Kate's Mountain Road.
Donations can also be made online at www.therhemalife.com, or by texting the amount you wish to give and the word "neighbor" to 501-697-4362.

As of this morning, there have been 24 fatalities.

Our thoughts are with the people of West Virginia. One of the things I like most about professional golf, is the money raised for charity each tournament. So sad this event had to be canceled, but again they are doing the right thing.
