On Monday, October 1, 2018, The Congressional Award Foundation will hold its Twenty-Fourth Annual Golf Classic at the acclaimed TPC Potomac Golf Course at Avenel Farm, in Potomac, Maryland.
This charity tournament brings together current and former Members of Congress, as well as prominent guests like professional athletes and business and civic leaders, to raise vital funds and awareness for the Foundation. Special guests have included Pro Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith, NBA stars Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, Jeff Green, and MLB pitching legend Roger Clemens.Proceeds from this year’s Golf Classic will support initiatives to stoke passion for STEM in America’s youth.
The Congressional Award exposes students to STEM-related concepts as well as STEM in everyday life – helping to make science, technology, engineering, and math more approachable. Through collaborations between educators, congressional offices, national and grassroots partners, and corporate sponsors, the program is delivered to a diverse population of young people, representing all corners of the country, of every race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, and religious belief.
By offering encouragement, engagement, and opportunities, together we can drive diversity in STEM fields, and beyond.
As The Congressional Award is a public-private partnership, the Foundation raises its own operating budget entirely through private sector donations. Sponsoring the Golf Classic is a great way to support America’s youth and raise visibility for your company’s mission.
