What is the Wendy’s Charity Classic?
It’s an annual LPGA Pro-Am featuring the top LPGA Legends players that raises funds for adoption programs. In 16 years, we’ve raised over $2.75 million for foster care adoption programs and funded the addition of several recruiters to the Dave Thomas Foundation’s Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program. These recruiters focus on the toughest cases – kids who’ve been waiting the longest for their forever family. And it’s working. Hundreds have been matched, hundreds of success stories have been told. You can continue to help hundreds more…
The Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program has recruiters in Detroit, Toledo, Lansing and Jackson. In addition to supporting Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Wendy’s Charity Classic funds agencies across the state of Michigan, spanning from Traverse City to Grand Rapids; Saginaw to Detroit.
