Wolfson Golf Tournament

2019 was the 10th year that we have held this golf event at The Palencia Golf Club. Each year it has gotten bigger and better. The Pro Shop handles the administrative duties to put on this charity golf tournament.

The residents of Palencia are very involved and supportive, many make donations even when they are not able to attend. Palencia has always been very gracious and provides a fabulous dinner, in their beautiful facility.

This year, we had 4 new sponsors, the weather was great, there were 97 golfers that played in the tournament and over $23,000.00 was raised to help children and families at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

Chick-fil-A, as always provided great lunches for everyone, and Bonefish Grill, who has donated a dinner for eight, for our silent auction, for several years, went above and beyond. During the event they donated another dinner for eight to be given away. We are so pleased with the support that this event gets from the community and gives to Wolfson Children’s Hospital. 

Brasstown Valley Celebrity Tournament Young Harris, GA - Aug 2nd & 3rd, 2019

It was truly a blessed event raising over $26,000 to support our work at the Atlanta Children’s Hospitals.

Please make plans to join us this year on August 2 & 3 for our 5 th Annual “Swing For The Kids” Celebrity Golf Tournament, featuring Gus Williams, Ed “Too Tall” Jones, George “Heisman Trophy” Rogers, and many other big-hearted celebs.
