DALLAS - Trane Residential Systems, a division of American Standard Companies, held its Second Annual Trane Charity Golf Tournament benefiting the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. The golf tournament drew over 80 Trane dealers, associates, and sponsors to the Lantana Golf Club in Flower Mound, Texas.

With this tournament, Trane Residential Systems raised and donated $10,750 to Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, one of the nation’s leading pediatric centers for the treatment of orthopedic conditions, certain related neurological disorders, and learning disorders such as dyslexia. It currently provides ongoing care for more than 16,000 children each year. There is no charge to patient families for treatment at the hospital, and admission is open to Texas children from birth to 18 years of age.

According to the company, Trane Residential Systems and independent Trane dealers are dedicated to giving back to the community. Trane Residential Systems also participates in “The Trains at North Park,” benefiting The Ronald McDonald House, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Race for the Cure, Neiman Marcus Adolphus Children’s Christmas Parade, and many other activities throughout the community.
