LPGA Marathon Classic – Kurt’s Causes

LPGA Marathon Classic – Kurt’s Causes

LPGA Pro Golfer Lexi Thompson Toledo is all abuzz about the LPGA Marathon Classic this week at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania. Not only does this women’s golf tournament bring notoriety to Toledo, it also brings in millions of dollars into our local economy.  People come from all over the world to the Toledo Area to be a part of this event.

But what I love most about it, is that it raises money for local children’s charities! The very first tournament in 1984 was underwritten by our local McDonald’s Restaurants franchise owners and helped raise money for the Ronald McDonald House of Toledo! They have been a core recipient ever since and one of my favorite charities. This tournament has since raised over ten million dollars that it has given to 170 children’s charities in our area.

As an added feature this year, the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, Sylvania Chamber of Commerce, and Epic Toledo hosted the new Chamber Canteen.
