READING TO KIDS CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT

The Reading to Kids Charity Golf Tournament will be a fun day of golf and networking. The format is a scramble tournament, making it easy to play for any level of golfer. The tournament will include fun prizes for top foursomes, holes-in-one, a closest-to-the-pin competition, a long-drive contest, and a raffle.

The tournament began as a competition among business schools called the MBA Masters Golf Classic, and it has expanded to become a charity fundraiser for Reading to Kids. Everyone is welcome to put together teams to participate. Or, register as a single, and we'll partner you up!

Not a golfer? Join us for the 19th Hole post tournament reception for dinner, raffle, and comedy.
