This event was the perfect prelude to the Nation's Football Classic, featuring Morehouse College and Howard University renewing a historic rivalry. "A rivalry that is rich in heritage and tradition on and off the field" states Mark Hill, Morehouse Alumni Association's Mid Atlantic Region Vice President.

PGA instructors and volunteers from all walks of life, combine talents to introduce the game of golf and its inherent structure of values (Nine Core Values) to children in their county. The field also includes out-of-towners, Morehouse alums, Howard alums, along other HBCU alums. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to engrave their names on the ultimate prize, the Bennett Trophy, in honor of Bill Bennett, one of the three founding members (along with William "Mac" McCoy and Tommy Johnson) of the original Morehouse Golf Benefit Tournaments that were held in the DC Metropolitan area between 1984 and 2000. During the awards ceremony a plaque was presented to the original founders of the Morehouse tournament.

Through this event, Morehouse Alumni from the Mid Atlantic Region were able to provide Morehouse College with scholarships that will enable more students to benefit from the unique opportunities that Morehouse has afforded African American men since 1867. This is a great investment in our youth and in the future of our great country.
