Zach Johnson Foundation Classic

The 8th Annual Zach Johnson Foundation Classic will take place on July 9th at Elmcrest Country Club.

The Zach Johnson Foundation Classic is a two-part event: a fundraiser gala and auction for sponsors and participants and a Pro-Am charity golf tournament.

Last year's golf tournament drew a crowd of approxmately 6,000 at Elmcrest Country Club and brought many big names, both on and off the golf course.

The dollars raised support Kids on Course, a program at Grant, Harrison, Van Buren Elementary Schools and Roosevelt and Wilson Middle Schools. The Zach Johnson Foundation fully funds the program and developed it in coordination with the Cedar Rapids Community School District. Kids on Course inspires in students the confidence to realize their academic and individual potential by providing creative and inventive opportunities that connect students and families to community and school.


For more information about playing groups and sponsorships in the ZJF Classic, contact Tracey Myers, Executive Director of the ZJF. Sponsorships are available, starting at $1,500.
