Limited Sponsorship And Team Opportunities Available, Volunteers Needed For 6th Annual Erlanger Children’s Golf Classic

Monday, September 13, 2021
The Sixth Annual Erlanger Children’s Golf Classic announces limited sponsorship opportunities and team slots remain for the charity tournament presented by Miller Industries. The tournament takes place on Oct. 4 at Chattanooga Golf and Country Club. 
 
Erlanger Foundation is taking precautionary measures to limit the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by reducing the number of teams available for purchase as well as in-person sponsorship opportunities. 
 
Erlanger Foundation Vice-Chair Less Lee adds, “To further ensure the safety and health of all who participate in this important annual fundraiser, we will also offer multiple stations providing gourmet food out on the course so that golfers can eat as they compete, as opposed to gathering in a large group to eat after the tournament, as we’ve done in the past.”
 
Mr.
Lee also announced a new title sponsor for the event, Miller Industries. Mr. Lee said, “We are extremely grateful that Miller Industries will support this tournament not just this year, but for the next five years to come. Will Miller and the entire staff at Miller Industries are wonderful partners to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, supporting our region’s only pediatric hospital and trauma center.”  
 
Sponsorship opportunities range from $5,000 to $20,000 and include entry of a four player team. Sponsorship offers will be accepted through Sept. 24 or until the tournament is full. A limited number of individual teams are also available at $2,500 per foursome. As in previous years, this event is expected to sell out early, officials said. 
 
The Erlanger Children’s Golf Classic, presented by Miller Industries, benefits the greatest needs at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. Other sponsors include “19 Hole Sponsor” Acura of Chattanooga; “Birdie Sponsors” Elder’s ACE Hardware and Virtual Procurement Services; “Practice Green Sponsor” Coca-Cola Bottling Co., United; “Hole Sponsors” First Horizon Bank, EnableComp, Yates Towing and Recovery, Chattanooga Times Free Press and Top Golf.  
 
Erlanger Foundation is still in need of volunteers for the annual golf event. Anyone interested can contact the Erlanger Foundation Office at 423-778-6600.
