Be The Change Golf tournament is a charitable event intended to bring people together who might not otherwise cross paths for a round of golf as a way to spark a conversation and get to know each other. We believe this is a crucial step on the journey to building strong relationships with members of the Black community. Be The Change is particularly focused on supporting the young people in our communities and the organizations that are doing great work to facilitate their success.
The tournament will be played at Theodore Wirth Golf Club, a community treasure bordering North Minneapolis. The idea, initiated by Houston White and John Baker, is to bring people to the neighborhood around their shared passion for golf and their desire to help local youth organizations that rely heavily on donations.
Proceeds from Be The Change tournament will be directed to organizations that provide life skills, positive youth development and educational opportunities in the community.
