Consumer tech distributor Petra Industries celebrated two milestones last week at its 20th Annual Hope In One Charity Golf Tournament.

The first was turning 20; the second was the cumulative $1 million in donations raised over that time.

“I am humbled to see the success of Hope in One through the years,” said Petra president Tate Morgan. “I’d like to thank our vendors for their generous support not only in regards to this event, but throughout the entirety of the year. Petra would not be where it is today without such outstanding vendor partners.”

This year’s golf outing, held at the Oak Tree Country Club in Petra’s headquarters town of Edmond, Okla., drew 180 participants and raised a record $120,000 — a far cry from the $1,500 donated in the tournament’s first year.

The funds will be shared by Whiz Kids of Oklahoma, a one-on-one volunteer tutoring/mentoring program for disadvantaged grade schoolers, and Mercy Multiplied, an international faith-based nonprofit that helps women ages 13 to 28 turn their lives around.

Founded in 1985, Petra supplies name-brand tech accessories to tens of thousands of retailers and e-tailers around the country from its 525,000-square-foot distribution center in Edmond.
