FREDERICK, MD -The Frederick Keys are excited to announce that the 22nd Keys Care Charity Golf Classic presented by Turning Point Financial will take place on Tuesday, July 11. This annual event will be held at Musket Ridge Golf Course. All proceeds from the tournament benefit Frederick Keys Care.
"Each year, Turning Point Financial selects several charity events to support and we are excited to be partnering with the Frederick Keys to support the Joel A. Stephens Memorial Fund this year," said Alexandra Stickelman, Director of Sales and Marketing for Turning Point Financial. "Over the years, we've enjoyed sharing in the tradition of Frederick Keys baseball with our clients, and this year, we are especially grateful for the unique opportunity to partner with the Frederick Keys organization and give back to the community."
Tournament registration begins at 8:00 a.m with a shotgun start at 9:00 a.m. The golf tournament format is captain's choice.

Over the last 21 years, the Keys have raised over $100,000 for the Joel A. Stephens Memorial Fund, better known as Frederick Keys Care. In the fall of 1999, this fund was created to honor Joel Stephens, a compassionate Orioles minor leaguer who passed away suddenly at age 22.
This fund is part of the Community Foundation of Frederick County's Universal Grant application funding program and supports local non-profit organizations that provide direct aid to Frederick County youth and young adults. Recipients of Keys Care grants for this year will be recognized at the awards luncheon following the golf tournament.
