Marilynn Smith, co-founder of both the LPGA and the LPGA Teaching & Club Professionals, announced the date for the 2010 Marilynn Smith LPGA Charity Golf Classic. The event will be held at Pebble Creek's Tuscany Falls Golf Course in Goodyear, Arizona on September 20, 2010. The Marilynn Smith LPGA Charity Golf Classic is a fundraiser for the Marilynn Smith Scholarship Fund through the LPGA Foundation.
Established in 1999, the Marilynn Smith Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to female high school seniors who have played golf in high school or in their community, have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and community involvement, and plan to continue to play competitive golf at an accredited college or university.
The 2009 Marilynn Smith LPGA Charity Golf Classic raised $25,000 and will award five, five thousand dollar scholarships to young women in 2010.
