When not leading Mission Pharmacal Company and its subsidiaries, Terrell Herring serves on the board of directors for Bridging the Gap Africa, a nonprofit organization that builds footbridges across dangerous rivers in rural Kenya. Through efforts like those of Terrell Herring, Kenyans receive safer access to important social services such as health care and education.
One of the programs that helps Bridging the Gap Africa meet its fundraising goals and improve the lives of people in eastern Africa is its golf tournament series. The organization hosts two major golf events in September and October. The first is the BtGA Golf Classic, which is set at the Jericho National Golf Club in the greater Philadelphia area. The second, three weeks later, is the BtGA Charity Golf Classic, set at Cumming, Georgia’s Polo Golf & Country Club. Sponsored by several pharmaceutical, energy, and food companies, these events include the use of practice facilities, meals, beverages, door prizes, and the round of golf.
