The inaugural Tony Barnhart Golf Classic presented by The Vinson Group was a tremendous success! Many thanks to everyone who participated, volunteered, and sponsored the event. It was a beautiful day for golf and an even better day for our mission in Honduras and Nicaragua.
Over a dozen celebrity athletes and more than 100 golfers gathered at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, GA to raise money for HOI’s ministry in Central America. As the players enjoyed a warm, sunny day on the links, conversations about HOI’s ongoing work abounded. Notable sports figures like Coach Vince Dooley and former Chicago Bear, Patrick Mannelly shared stories of their time in Honduras. They spoke of how the experience changed their lives and how blessed they were to touch the lives of others. Tony Barnhart and his wife, Maria, shared how much they enjoyed working with HOI and the HAVE Foundation in making a difference through education.
Thanks to a generous show of support, we exceeded our fundraising goal! Thank you to our wonderful hosts, celebrities for participating, and all of the players who came out to support the people of Honduras and Nicaragua. We’d also like to extend special thanks to our incredible sponsors: Becky Vinson and the Vinson Group, Truitt Health, and Smoke Rise Baptist Church.
