Pepsi-Cola of Selma always finds ways to enlist other corporate partners  in efforts to benefit the local community. 

This year, Pepsi-Cola teamed with Winn-Dixie for breast cancer awareness through its charity annual golf tournament at the Valley Grande Golf Course. Tournament proceeds will go toward helping breast cancer in Selma and Dallas County.

Doug Horton, a supervisor at Pepsi-Cola of Selma, said the company’s great relationship with Winn-Dixie made them the right company.

“Winn-Dixie has been raising money for breast cancer for several years,” Horton said.

Steve Smitherman, who owns the Valley Grande Golf Course, said that Selma and Dallas County are full of businesses with charitable hearts.

We’re always glad to see local businesses help out with charity events. To us, these efforts show class and grace whenever someone needs a helping hand.

We applaud Pepsi-Cola of Selma and Winn-Dixie for teaming up for a worthy cause.
