Dear Friends & Golf Enthusiasts:

We are thrilled to announce that 2015 marks the 13th Anniversary of our HoopTee Celebrity Golf Classic! This year we are hosting our special event again at the Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge in Charlotte, North Carolina from July 22nd - 24th, 2015. Your generous support provides scholarships for underprivileged kids to attend Achievements Unlimited (AU) Basketball School and supports numerous other youth-based programs throughout the Carolinas.

HoopTee Charities, Inc. is a North Carolina non-profit corporation whose mission is to support and create positive opportunities for as many of today’s youth as possible. Our mission, over the years, has known no borders as we have made this dream a reality for more than 1,000 children from the Carolinas, Washington, DC and even the Middle East. I am grateful for your contribution to our success and our commitment to the children remains steadfast.

This summer, HoopTee will again offer a fun and competitive atmosphere for returning golfers or new attendees. Our three-hole championship shootout will return this year and is sure to create high-level excitement and anticipation for the tournament’s outcome. Our HoopTee family and friends will all contribute to an outstanding two-day event that supports inspiring and productive opportunities for today’s youth in the Carolinas and beyond.

It is indeed a great pleasure to invite you to join me and many of my celebrity friends July 22nd - 24th at the 13th Annual HoopTee Celebrity Golf Classic. The Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge is Charlotte’s only Forbes Four Star and AAA Four Diamond honored hotel with resort-style amenities. There’s no doubt that the Golf Club at Ballantyne will provide a challenging and exciting atmosphere. Thank you for your ongoing support. I look forward to seeing you in July at our 13th Anniversary of HoopTee!
