2023 LEXUS CHAMPIONS FOR CHARITY NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Those with a passion for golf can appreciate the qualities of balance, grace, and precision – words that aptly describe Lexus automobiles. Those who play the game also appreciate the virtues of competition, generosity, and charity all of which can be found in the Lexus Champions for Charity Program. Beginning with 63 events in 1989, Lexus Champions for Charity has helped raise over $500 million for worthy causes throughout the country. This year, the program will assist charitable organizations at over 100 events nationwide. Lexus Champions for Charity pairs great golf with philanthropy, as amateur golfers participate in tournaments held at the finest golf and country clubs throughout the United States. Lexus supports the local tournaments by making a donation to each associated charity, while offering competitors the opportunity to win a Lexus and represent their charity in the annual Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship at Pebble Beach Resorts in December. The charities represented by the Top 3 Net Division and Top 3 Gross Division teams will divide a $60,000 purse, with the winning net and gross team claiming $15,000 for its hometown charity.
