Giving to the community through the World Golf Championships - Bridgestone Invitational

Northern Ohio Golf Charities Foundation is part of a volunteer organization that has sponsored professional golf tournaments at Firestone Country Club for over 60 years. Tournaments have provided over $25 million to local charities seeking to improve the quality of life in northeast Ohio. Organizations who benefit from the proceeds of tournaments include Akron Children's Hospital, the American Red Cross, Golden Age Centers of Cleveland, the Regional Food Banks of both Akron-Canton and Cleveland, Metroparks and the Akron Art Museum.

Fun, friendship and charity in the heart of the action

Every year over 1,100 volunteers of all ages come together to enjoy the World of Golf Championships - Bridgestone Invitational from a whole new perspective. Working in many capacities, donating their time and talent to help run the golf tournament, the volunteers take a great deal of pride in hosting this world-class event. They have also found that the tournament is a unique family activity, as well as a great way to make new friends that love golf and enjoy giving to their community.

Thank You!
