The 13th Annual PSWR Golf Classic, better known as the Don Shelton Memorial Golf Classic, is around the corner and we are seeking sponsors for this year's event on September 18. With the help of our sponsors, last year’s golf tournament generated gifts in the amount of $3,500 for each of the six participating ministries, All Peoples Community Center, Disciples Seminary Foundation, DOC Students Program, Chapman University, Eastmont Community Center, Project IMPACT and the Camp and Conference Scholarship Fund of the PSW Regional Church.
2016 was our best year ever, and we hope to make 2017’s event even more successful.

The PSWR golf tournament has always been filled with great fellowship and lots of fun. I’m happy to see that it continues into 2017. These tournaments always serve as a bit of a reunion for me as I get to reconnect with those I have not seen for a long time.
