This year will be the sixth edition, and the net proceeds will benefit Christ Central Ministries' GED Program and The First Tee of Aiken.

Lunch will be provided by Chick-fil-A, and Fatz Café will provide a light dinner after the tournament. The event is open to all golfers at a cost of $100 per player, with four players per team (Captain's Choice format.)
