Local Golf Classic raises money for the youth

October 10, 2019

The Rookery South in Milton was the host of the first annual Fore the Youth Golf Classic. Factory Sports and The Jason Anderson Foundation partnered to host the inaugural Classic. The event took place Thursday, September 19 at 9:00 am.

Golfers enjoyed a beautiful day of golf in southern Delaware. The first edition of the Golf Classic featured a tie at the top of the leader board among 2 four-some’s. Congratulations to those teams and thank you again for coming out to support a wonderful cause.

The Jason Anderson Foundation supports youth in need by providing them the opportunity to participate in organized local community sports. The Foundation believes that these children gain valuable life and fitness benefits by participating in community sports.

Founded in 2015 after the tragic loss of their son Jason, the Anderson family started the non-profit Foundation as a way to give back. Sports were an essential part of Jason’s personal and professional life including his time at Syracuse University, the Syracuse Sky Chiefs, the New Orleans Saints, Dover Motor Sports and the Ohio University Sports Administration program. Jason also quietly gave back to his community. He volunteered his time to the Autism Society of Delaware, the Brain Injury Association of Delaware, the Delaware Sports Commission and the Delaware Chamber of Commerce. As a result of his unselfishness and desire to help the community, creating the Foundation was an easy choice.

Factory Sports aims provide the highest quality of coaching for athletes of all ages and abilities that they might compete with enthusiasm, character, and expertise in a safe environment. Founded in 2014, Factory Sports owners Pat Woods and his wife, Brandi, opened the doors on the belief that our youth need guidance in getting from point A to point B, and what better way to provide such guidance than through athletics.

The day could not have been possible without the support of our sponsors; Greater Lewes Foundation, Derek Clifton (Edward Jones), Johnson Orthodontics, Atlantic Millwork, Steve Smyk, Starboard, Dewey Hyatt, ‘47, Rusty Rudder, Mr. P’s Pizza, and may others. Thank you! Your kindness is extremely appreciated.
