Wear White Open

April 24, 2017

We are excited to introduce a new golf event to the Hamot Health Foundation community on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Kahkwa Club — the Wear White Open.

The golf game at this special event will be limited to 20 foursomes, each competing to increase the amount of tournament proceeds allocated to their favorite fund at the Foundation.

Participation in the tournament will include lunch, gifts for each player, 18 holes of golf, a forecaddie for your foursome, and use of the practice facilities and locker room. Enjoy win-place-show wagering on the participating teams, and course concierge service during play.

The Kahkwa Club, designed by the famed golf course architect Donald Ross, has hosted many of our country’s most prestigious championships. Come play and enjoy! At the conclusion of the tournament, golfers may invite a guest to join in the evening dinner and celebration of the many important funds at Hamot Health Foundation.

As you enjoy another sunny golf season in Erie, you can look forward to wearing your brightest whites and bringing your best game to the Kahkwa Club on Sept. 16, all in support of Hamot Health Foundation’s Promise 21 campaign.
