Mark Your Calendars!  The 2017 Chi Chi Charity Classic celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Chi Chi and the Bear will be held on November 12th & 13th.  Your generosity has helped change the lives of children who often struggle with low academic achievement and poor personal skills.

Please circle the 2017 date so you can play some golf, have fun and most importantly help the kids in our community on their Journey to Success!

About Chi Chi and the Bear: This was the Foundation’s first capital campaign in conjunction with four Pro Am events featured as our  thank you parties.  Thanks to the Nicklaus family and others such as Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Fuzzy Zoeller, Lee Trevino and many others, the campaign raised over $2.5 million to build the Chi Chi Academy and golf course which opened in November of 1989.
