More Event Information
We are inviting you to join us on Thursday May 17th, 2018, for the Morehouse Golf Classic Atlanta during the 2018 Commencement Weekend in Atlanta, GA! The purpose of this event is to raise scholarship funds for needy and deserving young men in the face of shrinking financial support and tightening budgets at Historically Black Colleges and Universities such as Morehouse College. The money raised during the tournament enables us to assist even more students in need at Morehouse College. However, this would not have been possible with without the generous support from the community. Since 2011 the Morehouse Golf Classic has raised over $100,000 and helped many students eventually become Morehouse Men. Moving forward, we hope to continue to grow this event as an annual way to support the “Morehouse Legacy.” Therefore, we ask that you strongly consider supporting our mission of developing men with disciplined minds who will lead lives of leadership and service by being a sponsor.
All proceeds from the Morehouse Golf Classic Atlanta will DIRECTLY benefit the Morehouse Golf Team and the Morehouse National Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, as this event is sponsored by the Morehouse National Alumni Association, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization registered in the state of Georgia.
Checks can be forwarded to:
