READING TO KIDS CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT

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!
