2023 Charity Golf Tournament to Benefit Gwyneth's Gift

Golf 1

Each year the members of Fredericksburg put on a golf tournament to benefit Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation. The 18-hole, shotgun-start tournament will boast several hole prizes, raffles, a steak dinner, awards, and a whole lotta golf. Here is a chance to come out and show your stuff on the course while supporting a great cause. This is also a great opportunity to play against other businesses and organizations, all while networking and having some fun.

Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation’s hope is that through our work, we can serve as a catalyst for increasing the survival rate of those suffering from sudden cardiac arrest because they received immediate help through Hands-Only CPR and AED use. We strive to create a world where everyone can save a life.

Proceeds will be used towards training and educating the community on the importance of Hands-Only CPR and the use of an AED.
