The Mitsubishi Electric Classic is an official event of the PGA Tour that allows golfers from around the area to raise money for local charities like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett. It is a yearly fundraising event in Duluth, Georgia that took place this year on April 9th through the 15th.

This year, a total of $231,000 was raised, breaking the $2 million mark in total funds raised since the tournament’s start in 2013. “The Mitsubishi Electric Classic is proud of its well-established history of charitable giving in Gwinnett County and beyond,” said Stan Hall, executive director of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic. “Philanthropy has been a driving force of this community-focused event from its beginning, and we are thrilled that the tournament has been successful in growing its commitment to charity, especially to its primary beneficiaries, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett.”

The tournament consists of 54 holes and features 78 PGA Tour Champions professionals. The tournament’s considerable growth in charitable giving since 2016 is a product of several charity-focused events conducted by the Mitsubishi Electric Classic, including Birdies for Charity, Matt Ryan Celebrity-Am Classic, Georgia United Credit Union Executive Women’s Day and the Colorguard Celebrity Challenge. Overall, the tournament is another testament to the impact that the Gwinnett County community can have when we come together for a good cause.
