Golf participants have the opportunity to compete in two hole-in-one contests for a chance to win a car from Smythe Volvo and Madison Honda and a cash prize. Closest to the Line and a putting contest is also slated.

The Y encourages the community to come out and support the Charity Golf Classic by attending the reception, which includes cocktails and dinner, starting at 5p.m. Live and silent auctions will take place during the reception. Dinner reservations are available for $125 per person; tables of eight for $900.

Each year, 100% of the golf tournament proceeds make summer camp a reality for area children whose families are unable to fully afford the cost—the 2013 Golf event’s mission is to provide financial assistance for 200 weeks of camp. Since 1998, the Charity Golf Classic is the single most important fundraising event for the Madison Area YMCA’s Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund enables hundreds of children and families to participate in Y membership, programs and services including child care, early childhood education and summer camps at the Madison Area Y’s Family Center and renowned F.M. Kirby Children’s Center. The Annual Charity Golf Classic is one of the ways that allows the Madison Area Y to provide assistance to anyone who resides or works within its local service area. Support is provided based on demonstrated need, with the goal that no one be turned away from membership regardless of income or background.
