The 2021 Tournament, along with the Pro-Am Party and Pro-Am Tournament, brought in sponsor revenue of $110,000, with net proceeds of more than $45,000.
Beginning with the inaugural tournament in 2017, net proceeds from the tournament for distribution to local Bella Vista charities have increased year-overyear. Over the 5-year history of this event, charitable distributions over $160,000 have been awarded to the Bella Vista Animal Shelter, Bella Vista Courtesy Van, BV Community TV and the Rotary Club of Bella Vista (to share with their charities). Many sponsorship opportunities are available for 2022, as noted on the attached. Thanks to many donors, our Silent Auction in 2021 generated proceeds of more than $18,000 and we are soliciting donations of auction items for 2022 to hopefully meet or beat that amount.
WAPT – Results, June 26, 2021 The final round of the 2021 Bella Vista Charity Classic has concluded, and it went down to the wire. Jessica Porvasnik (Hinckley, OH) who held the lead since round one went wire to wire to secure the victory. Coming into the last 2 holes Porvasnik was down by two shots. Kenzie Wright (McKinney, TX) had the round of the day heading into the 17th hole. An errant second shot in the trees resulted in a bogey. Jessica was able to hit the par 5 in two shots giving her an eagle putt. The two-putt birdie was good enough to get into a tie. Coming down 18 both players had putts for birdie but could not convert. On the first playoff hole Wright hit it left into the trees but was able to get it to the front of the green with a punch out. Meanwhile Porvasnik hit the fairway, then the green, and two putted for par to secure the 2021 Bella Vista Charity Classic victory.
APT – Results, June 26, 2021 Our Bella Vista Charity Classic has concluded and what a great week it was. From the largest Pro-Am of the year, to the 260+ volunteers, to crowning a champion, it will be a week that we will never forget. We want to say thank you to every person who made this week possible. We crowned a champion today at (-20) after playing one round at The Highlands and three at Bella Vista Country Club. Sam Triplett (Paradise Valley, AZ) secured his first APT win here in the great state of Arkansas. His scores this week were 70 | 66 | 66 | 63. This was not Sam’s first professional win but he said it was his biggest.
