Thank you for your interest in the Annual Ray Kaligian III Charity Golf Tournament!
This event is sponsored by the Remembering Ray Kaligian III NFP charity and has been granted 501c(3) status with the IRS.
MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of the Remembering Ray Kaligian III NFP charity is to provide financial aid to other non‐profit organizations that celebrate the betterment of animals and mankind.
The 2018 Remembering Ray Kaligian III Memorial Golf Tournament has unfortunately been canceled. Our “home” golf course, Mill Creek will be under renovation this year and is not expected to re-open until sometime in the fall.
When we learned of this we searched for a new venue but could not find one that fit all the needs of our tournament and guests for cost, location and amenities. Although there are other locations that may have met some of our needs, the cost exceeded what our Tournament and guests have come to expect.
We will continue to accept donations and we will be donating to the Anderson Animal Shelter and Habitat for Humanity.
It is the wish of the Board of Directors to continue this charity for the foreseeable future. We will continue to monitor the renovation of the Mill Creek Golf Course and work with their management team to schedule our tournament for 2019.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Michael McCormick, Ray & Bobbie Kaligian, Jeff Shaw and Bryan C. Knapp.
