Mad Anthonys team with event for pro-ams

The Mad Anthonys charity events will run with Hotel Fitness Championship

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - 9:23 am

The Mad Anthonys will host a pair of pro-am golf tournaments as part of the 2014 Hotel Fitness Championships at Sycamore Hills this fall.

The Mad Anthonys Pro-Ams at the Hotel Fitness Championship will be Aug. 25 and 27 and will feature amateur golfers teaming up with members of the Tour Finals event. The pro-ams will benefit Mad Anthonys Children's Hope House, which provides temporary housing for families with children receiving critical care at local hospitals and also the Evans Scholars Foundation, which awards college scholarships to caddies.

The Western Golf Association and the Mad Anthonys will work together on the event.

“We're excited to extend our relationship with Mad Anthonys and offer two Pro-Am events during tournament week that will benefit important local causes,” Hotel Fitness Championship tournament director Duke Butler IV said in a release. “Mad Anthonys was a great partner in our inaugural year, and we look forward to even better things to come in 2014.”

The Hotel Fitness Championship is Aug. 25-31 at Sycamore Hills. It is one of four Tour Finals events that determine which players earn cards for the 2014-15 PGA Tour.

The Mad Anthonys will hold their annual Red Coat Dinner on Aug. 26.

“Being a part of the Hotel Fitness Championship is a continuation of our long-standing tradition of providing a premier Pro-Am charity golf event while increasing support of the Mad Anthonys Children's Hope House and other important causes for children in our region,” Mad Anthonys board president Don Banowetz said in a release.

“We're happy to continue our organization's distinguished tradition of service to the Fort Wayne community.”
