For twenty years, Junior Achievement’s first-class Golf Classic has been held at the prestigious Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York. The classic is played on Winged Foot Golf Club’s East and West Courses which are both included in Golf Digest’s top 40 rated courses in the country and the West Course at Winged Foot will host the 2020 U.S. Open.
Our 2017 Classic will be held on July 17th. After golfing, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in our raffle while enjoying a cocktail hour. Shortly after, the real action will begin with an outstanding reception, a live auction, and awards for the day’s golf achievements.
The goals of the Junior Achievement Golf Classic, benefiting Junior Achievement of Southwest Connecticut, are to raise funds to support our programs in lower Fairfield County, build new relationships with business and community leaders, and generate positive awareness of our organization’s mission within the community and among the corporate sector. To date, this tournament has raised over 2 million dollars, which has enabled us to increase penetration in area schools, and will help us reach over 12,000 students this year in the communities of Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Norwalk, Westport, New Canaan and Weston.
We accomplish these goals by:
- Providing sponsoring companies with a unique, premier customer/client entertainment and networking event that promotes relationship building.
- Designing a fund-raising event that is also a productive business development tool for sponsoring companies, thus encouraging the use of marketing, sales, and promotion budgets.
- Organizing a committee of key business leaders from both inside and outside the organization to seek sponsorships among their colleagues, vendors and friends.
- Striving to make the tournament a first-class event.
