Radiology and physical therapy equipment tagged for purchase with funds from The Lake Wylie Classic Golf Tournament

In 2018, The Lake Wylie Classic Golf Tournament surpassed the $695,000 mark in collective funds donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Greenville as they presented a check for $135,000 from the annual tournament. This year, funds raised during the April 26 event sent the all-time total to a new record, surpassing an original goal of $100,000 and resulting in a check totaling $160,000.

“This is an incredibly important fundraiser for our hospital, and the money we receive is used for the most noble cause I can imagine: providing children with life-changing care,” said Paul Finelli, director, donor development.

The tournament raises proceeds not only through the tournament played at River Hills Country Club in Lake Wylie, South Carolina, but also through a live and silent auction held the evening before tournament play. Additionally, generous sponsorships – from $100 for a hole sponsorship to $2500 for an underwriting sponsorship – help ensure success.
