DEVILS RIDGE CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC

The Devils Ridge Charity Golf Classic run by the Devils Ridge Men’s Golf Association (MGA) raises funds going directly to support local families dealing with Alzheimer’s. Working with Alzheimer’s of North Carolina the monies are used for research and patient and care giver assistance here within the state. The Devils Ridge MGA has a goal of raising over $40,000 to assist those in need here in our own community of greater Wake County. Past major sponsors, Rex Healthcare, United Airlines, Carolina Hurricanes, John Deere and Edward Jones help provide a foundation for the tournaments goals but more sponsors are needed. The tournament offers a wide array of sponsorship levels including major sponsorship levels, hole sponsorships, special event sponsors and contributions for our silent auction and/or raffle. Alzheimer’s is a disease that impacts over 5 million families, with loved ones often lost to us even though they are still with us. And women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis.

To fight this dreaded disease, the MGA invites you to join us on September 23rd at the Devils Ridge Charity Golf Classic to benefit Alzheimer’s North Carolina, an organization focused on the needs of North Carolina patients and caregivers as they battle this disease.
