Presented by

Pilot Flying J logo

The Pellissippi Foundation will host a FREE golf event to raise money and awareness about Foundation Scholarships and tuition-free college through Tennessee Promise.

Mike Krause, Executive Director Drive to 55 and Tennessee Promise, will serve as our luncheon speaker.

Funds raised from the event will support student scholarships and the Greatest Need Fund. With Tennessee Promise, you may be wondering why students still need scholarships.

Guaranteed free teams are first awarded to our generous $1,000 and up sponsors. Sponsor support of less than $1,000 will provide a first round opportunity to register for playing space. We invite you to become a sponsor and secure your space!
