The Cabbage Patch Invitational Golf Tournament Benefits At-Risk Children on July 13
On Monday, July 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., The Cabbage Patch Settlement House will host its annual invitational golf tournament benefiting Louisville’s at-risk children and families. The fundraiser takes place at the scenic Valhalla Golf Club, rated #1 in Kentucky and listed among the top “100 Greatest Courses in America” by Golf Digest.
This year’s event will feature a premium bourbon tasting immediately following the tournament. Player fees for the tournament range from $1,625 for one player to $6,500 for a team of four, and dinner and a cocktail reception are included. $1,125 of the per-player fee paid is a tax deductible donation that supports the at-risk children served by The Patch. Players can sign up at http://cabbagepatch.org/special-events/golf/.
Proceeds from the event will benefit The Patch’s Educational Opportunities and Recreation/Youth Development Programs where at-risk children receive:
Structured educational programs designed to help students achieve their highest academic potential.
Supervised Homework Helper, tutoring, computer training, scholarships and college visits.
Athletics, camps and dozens of other recreational programs, year-round.
Valhalla Golf Club, located approximately 20 miles east of downtown Louisville at 15503 Shelbyville Rd, opened its doors in 1986. Named one of the top three new private golf courses in the U.S. in 1987, the first year it was eligible, Valhalla Golf Club remains the No. 1-ranked course in Kentucky and one of "America's 100 Greatest Courses", according to Golf Digest (2005). Newly renovated in 2012, the 18-hole, 7,496-yard, Par 71 private course hosted the 2014 PGA Championship.
