Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center announced that the Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Golf Classic is returning to Ellendale Country Club in 2020.  

The tournament will take place the week of March 30 – April 4, 2020.  

The schedule of the week is as follows: Pro-Am Tournament, Tuesday March 31st, Glow Ball Tournament and Par-Tee Friday, April 3rd and Professional Tournament Wednesday – Saturday, April 1-4th. 

This is the only Pro AM tournament in our region, and gives local golfers the opportunity to play with future PGA stars.  

Throughout the week, the event will feature food and drinks from local vendors and amazing prizes for participants. 

In the past, the tournament has been successful due to its support from the community.  

Every net dollar from the tournament benefits Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center at helping to take the fight against cancer forward through prevention, innovation, research, survivorship, teamwork and patient assistance. 

“It is due to the tremendous support of our community members that the Golf Classic has helped touch the lives of hundreds patients undergoing treatment right here at home,” said Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO of TGMC. “The funds raised have allowed our Cancer Center to host numerous free screenings when they may not otherwise have had the opportunity.”
