NOTICE: 16th Annual MADF/G. Wynn Invitational

Updated:  04-21-2020

Due to the ongoing protective measures put in place to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus we have made the difficult decision to cancel  the 16th Annual MADF/G. Wynn Invitational. This is definitely tough.  For the past 15 years, this event has been the staple of our fundraising efforts.  However, the safety and health of our golfers has always been our top priority and as we slowly begin our process of healing, we earnestly believe that hitting the pause button is the right thing to do.

These are certainly unprecedented times and now more than ever, we are dedicated to ensuring all children and youth have an equal opportunity to succeed at achieving their dreams.  As you may know, all proceeds from the MADF/G. Wynn Invitational benefit the Charlotte Lemons Annual Student Scholarship (C.L.A.S.S.) Award which awards $1,000.00 and $5,000.00 educational scholarships to graduating high school seniors throughout Georgia. Despite having to cancel this fundraiser, we are still awarding scholarships and the 2020 scholarship recipients will be announced this week.   

If you are fortunate to be in a position to help us continue to fulfill our mission, you can donate to the C.L.A.S.S. Fund by clicking on the following link C.L.A.S.S Donation.  No amount is too small, and we will continue to be good stewards of your generosity.

The MADF/G. Wynn Invitational will be back stronger than ever in 2021 and we hope to see everyone back on the links.  Thank you for continuing to support our efforts to Make A Difference!


Stay Safe and Healthy!
