Tighten The Drag Foundation Charity Golf Classics


Our First Annual Charity Golf Classic was a lot of fun and helped to support #TeamHayden in 2016 by bringing him to Florida for specialized therapy. It was an EYE opener for his family and gave Hayden the gift of HOPE for recovery. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who SPONSORED and PARTICIPATED to make it happen! YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE! SPECIAL THANKS to the East Lake Fire Dept for their help with our GOLF BALL DROP RAFFLE!


If you would like to be invited to our 2017 Golf Classic or would like to Sponsor the event, please contact us at info@tightenthedragfoundation.org
