The Charlotte Knights held their 6th Annual Charity Golf Classic, presented by Duke Energy, on Wednesday, May 22 at the Tega Cay Golf Club. The event was a huge success.

Over 150 golfers arrived on Wednesday eager to get on the course. The weather was beautiful and the competition was fierce -- and it was all for a great cause. 

Registration began at 8:30 a.m. and by 10:00 a.m., the golfers hit the course ready for a full day of fun in the sun. Golfers competed to win some great prizes, but the day was more about raising money for charity.

Knights Community Relations Director Lindsey Roycraft did an outstanding job putting the entire event together.

Wednesday's annual golf classic was set up to help raise money for the Levine Children's Hospital. Each year, the Knights, along with many of their great partners, hold this golf event to raise awareness and money for children and families in need. 100% of the money raised from the golf classic goes directly to Levine Children's Hospital.

After all of the golf, the players made their way back for some delicious food and the award presentation. At that time, Knights Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer Dan Rajkowski, along with Mark Griffith of Levine Children's Hospital, announced the grand total raised. In all, Wednesday's event raised $14,500 surpassing the total raised in 2012. In the six-year span that the Knights have held the tournament, the team has raised over $100,000 for Levine Children's Hospital. 

The Knights would like to take a moment to thank all of the great people who helped make Wednesday's golf classic a success. We look forward to continuing our great relationship with the fine people at Levine Children's Hospital and we can't wait to raise even more money in 2014.
