As all-around successful charity golf events go, the Appleseed Charity Golf Classic in Potomac, Md., is hard to beat. Chock-full of fun activations such as on-course contests and wager games, a silent auction with amazing prizes, and a pre-round trick-shot show by famed long-drive champion and golf entertainer Dan Boever, the tournament once again left participants raving about how much fun they'd had at this year's installment, which was held at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm on September 25. But even more importantly, the Appleseed Classic is also a successful fundraising platform that brings in valuable donations for the Appleseed Network, whose charity centers around the country and in Mexico City support children's health, safety and wellness in critical ways.
Ninety-six players played the 18-hole shamble tournament at TPC Potomac's recently redesigned course, and the team made up of Carl Nichols, Todd Steggerda, Bryan Judd and Maurice Darbyshire from the WilmerHale Law Firm walked away with the winners' trophy.
The Appleseed Charity Golf Classic is one of 34 amateur golf events across America that are part of the Genesis Invitational series in 2017, which means players were treated to Genesis-sponsored experiences throughout the day, including a chance to win a brand-new Genesis G90 luxury sedan with a hole-in-one on TPC Potomac's par-3 9th hole. Two of the event's winners also earned an all-expenses-paid trip to the Genesis Invitational at Florida's Streamsong Resort in October.
