Cannonball Golf Tourney Features Senior Tour Pros
The invitational pro/am event at Creighton Farms in Aldie doubles as charitable fundraiser.
Organizers of the Cannonball Invitational Pro/Am at Creighton Farms recently announced the names of confirmed participants in this weekend’s event in Aldie. The two-day event benefits the Piedmont Community Foundation and features professionals golfers from the Sunbelt Senior Tour (SST), which is recognized as the top tour in the world for players 45 and over, and attracts proven players from the PGA, Nationwide, and Champions tours as well as the European and European Senior tours.
“The Piedmont Community Foundation is a good fit for the Cannonball’s charitable partnership,” said Rick Bechtold founder and director of the Cannonball. “This is a group that builds local grantmaking endowment, so this event will help those in need in the Piedmont region for generations to come.”
The winning amateur teams will be honored with their own winner’s “purse” with a $10,000 permanent endowment fund held at PCF. They will name the fund and decide the grant-making focus of the fund, creating a legacy of grants in their honor and with their vision in perpetuity.
PCF will apply additional charitable proceeds from the event toward its overall grant-making and community development work.
