The Sanctuary Charity Classic is set to take place Saturday, Jan. 26 and The Sanctuary Golf Club invites the public to participate in this charitable golf event. Brunch begins at 10:30 a.m., with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun, followed by awards at 5 p.m.

Proceeds from this season’s Sanctuary Charity Classic will again benefit the Charitable Foundation of the Islands, which was established in 2011 to better serve our community by assisting island non-profit organizations as well as island residents and workers experiencing hardships such as medical or financial emergencies. The mission of the CFI is to promote philanthropy and build a spirit of community to enhance the quality of life for residents and employees of the islands, now and for generations to come.

“The Sanctuary Golf Club’s members overwhelmingly embraced this event, allowing the course to be closed to just this event," said Ken Kouril, Chief Operating Officer of The Sanctuary Golf Club. "They are exceptionally generous and committed to this fundraiser. The fact that this is the 17th year and has raised over $1.6M demonstrates the dedication from the members to make The Sanctuary Charity Classic successful.”
