|Champions For Charity|
The Greater Hickory Kia Classic at Rock Barn is fully committed to the PGA TOUR's Champions Tour mission of giving back, which is why we consider ourselves true "Champions for Charity". Because philanthropic efforts are at the heart of everything we do, each year our tournament has the great pleasure of donating net proceeds of more than $100,000 to many charities in our community. Since 2003, the GHC has donated in excess of $1 million to local and area charities.
The tournament has traditionally chosen to approach charitable contributions in a different way than most tournaments. Rather than selecting one sole charity, the tournament has opted to spread its donation to several organizations in the Greater Hickory area guaranteeing the continuation of its success beyond just one week.
