Sponsors, Teams Get Ready for Phil S. Harison Memorial Golf Classic on September 21

Phil S. Harison Golf ClassicFall tradition was started by businessman for businessmen

Sponsors and corporate teams are invited to participate in the 23rd Annual Phil S. Harison Memorial Golf Classic, which takes place Monday, September 21 at West Lake Country Club.

The annual fundraising event—a fall tradition—was started by local businessman Phil S. Harison, chair of the Walton Foundation board (1998-2007), and continues to bring together local business leaders to support the Walton Foundation’s mission of helping people with disabilities in the CSRA live, work and play successfully.

“Through their financial support, sponsors and teams help defray the cost of accessible home modifications such as ramps, assistive technology devices, adaptive sports equipment for our free adaptive sports clinics, and transitional costs from hospital to home, making life more independent for those with disabilities in this area,” said Haley Hamam, Associate Development Officer for Walton Foundation for Independence.

During the golf classic, up to 32 teams of four enjoy a day of golf at West Lake Country Club, lunch and an evening awards banquet. In addition to fun on the course and a goody bag filled with gifts, every golfer receives a choice of Footjoy products, including top-of-the-line golf shoes. Winners are also awarded beautiful gifts of crystal etched with the name of the tournament, date and place.

Opportunities abound for sponsorships, in-kind donations and other ways to support the foundation’s mission. Hole sponsors are encouraged to set up on their holes for a day of fun, sharing business information and treats with the players.

Team spots go quickly, so teams are encouraged to start registering now. To find out more about becoming a sponsor or to register a team, contact Haley Hamam at 706-826-5809 or email haleyh@waltonfoundation.net.
