2017 Beneficiaries

The Mission of the WGEM/Herald Whig TriState Pro-Am is to further Jr. golf in the TriState area. Golf teaches many valuable life lessons, and we find it important to grow the game in the TriState area to help our youth become successful in life. Ultimately this will benefit the TriState community.

The United Way harnesses the caring power of communities to advance the greater good and create opportunities for a better life for all. We have named the United Way of Adams County as a beneficiary to help them on their mission as well.
