The 2016 SVEM Charity Golf Classic was held at Timber Banks Golf Club in Baldwinsville, NY on May 9th 2016.
The 2016 SVEM Golf Classic was the first time the Sport Venue & Event Management graduate program hosted the event. The charity golf tournament benefited Vera House; a comprehensive domestic and sexual violence service agency providing shelter, advocacy, education, and counseling services for women, children, and men.
In it's inaugural year the golf tournament was a tremendous success and raised over $15,000 for the Vera House. The main purpose of the event was not only to raise money to support those affected by domestic and sexual violence in the local community, but also to raise awareness about Vera House.
The funds raised benefited the Vera House by providing support to the counseling, advocacy, shelter, and education services. Planning the tournament was, and still is, provided as a learning experience for the graduate students as they work to create a successful and exciting tournament for future years to come.
