Walk the Course Against Domestic Violence Returns to Quail Hollow Championship

For the second year, the Quail Hollow Championship, the PGA TOUR Wives Association and the Avon Foundation for Women will make Tuesday a very special day at Quail Hollow Club.

On the evening of Tuesday, April 27, the Quail Hollow Club will be the venue for Walk the Course Against Domestic Violenceóa community effort whose goal is to raise critical funds and awareness and money to help end the cycle of domestic violence in North Carolina.

Last year marked the first time the tournament hosted the event and $100,000 was raised and awarded to help Charlotte-area domestic violence agencies continue their life-saving work. More than 900 Walkers and Volunteers contributed to the eventís success.

"The Quail Hollow Championship is excited to once again partner with the PGA TOUR Wives Association and the Avon Foundation for Women to help everyone recognize the seriousness of domestic violence in our communities," said Executive Director Kym Hougham. "Last year the Charlotte community and the surrounding area showed tremendous enthusiasm for this worthy cause. We look forward to the same excitement and energy this year."

Walk the Course is a non-competitive, family-friendly event. Patrons can participate solo or as a part of a team in the 18-hole walk (approximately five miles). To register, visit WalktheCourseAgainstDV.org and click on "Participate." All participants will receive one-time admission to the Quail Hollow Championship so they can participate and top fundraisers will be eligible for great prizes!

Once again, 100% of the proceeds from this event will be awarded to deserving local agencies including The Shelter of Gaston County, United Family Services Shelter for Battered Women, Turning Point of Union County, and the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence to support education, prevention and direct service programs for those in need. Help us change the course of domestic violence in North Carolina by registering to walk, volunteer or donate today!
