Share the Green with Peyton Manning
The Peyton Manning Golf Classic happens every summer in Knoxville, where more than 200 golfers in 4-player teams enjoy a round of golf in the morning or afternoon and spend time with former University of Tennessee quarterback and current Denver Broncos quarterback, Peyton Manning. The PeyBack Foundation, established by Peyton Manning in 1999, promotes the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. All proceeds from this golf tournament will help children in Tennessee. In 2013, the Peyton Manning Golf Classic raised close to $150,000 for East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
Peyton Manning will be present at the tournament and visiting with golfers throughout the day at Fox Den Country Club in Farragut. The day of golf will include breakfast, lunch, a 19th hole reception, photo opportunities with Manning and much more.
"We are so thankful to Peyton Manning for including East Tennessee Children's Hospital as a key recipient of his Golf Classic this year," said Keith Goodwin, President/CEO of Children's Hospital. "It was a great day to play a round and exciting to see golfers who have supported this tournament for many years continue to participate and support Children's Hospital. When you combine a favorite hometown athlete with a golf event that raises money for two worthwhile charities, it's a hole-in-one day for everyone involved."
