RENO, Nev. (AP) — A nonprofit group that serves Nevada children and families is cashing in on its recognition as the PGA Tour's 2012 "Charity of the Year."

Andy Pazder, the tour's chief of operations, presented a $30,000 grant on Thursday to the Children's Cabinet's executive director, Mike Pomi.

His visit to an economic conference in Reno was organized by Jana Smoley, executive director of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

The Children's Cabinet helps low-income families with child care, violence prevention and other services. The grant will be used to fund tutoring and other after-school programming for students in downtown Reno.

The PGA tournament at Montreux Golf & Country Club between Reno and Lake Tahoe has donated more than $2.5 million to nonprofits and schools in northern Nevada since it began in 1999.
