As a testament to a lifelong devotion to golf, family, friends, and building strong communities, Jack founded this Klassic to help teenagers continue their education by providing scholarships. As an inductee of the National Black Golf Hall of Fame, Jack used golf to make a difference. This Klassic honors his legacy.
Going on 21 years, the golf tournament is our major fundraiser for the Guide Right Program. Our goal this year is to raise over $30,000. We depend on the generosity of up to 144 golf participants, many returning and new sponsors to achieve this goal. By participating and providing sponsorships in the Artis “Jack” Hall Golf Klassic, you and your company will have the following impact:
- Provide the funding to award up to a $3,000 scholarship to each qualified high school graduating seniors who participates in our Guide Right program.
- Help relieve the burden of college tuition, educational fees, books and supplies, as well as on-campus boarding expenses.
- Provide the seed funding for the operation of the Guide Right Program for the following year.
We also depend on over two dozen volunteers who assist us on the day of the golf tournament for which we are very thankful.
