$75,000 Raised at the 30th Annual Red Ribbon Classic Golf Tournament


Greenville Family Partnership (GFP) and Chris and Kelly’s HOPE Foundation are pleased to announce that the 30th Annual Southeastern Products Red Ribbon Classic presented by NAI Earle Furman raised $75,000.

Our tournament strives to bring awareness to something that has taken over our country, the opioid epidemic.  Substance use and addiction does not discriminate and we want to continue to empower youth, parents, and community to have open and honest conversations about drugs and alcohol.

Both GFP and Chris & Kelly’s HOPE Foundation are beneficiaries of the tournament proceeds, enabling both organizations to educate, prevent, and support youth in navigating a culture in which drugs are an everyday way of life for many.  The programs and services provided help youth and families make good decisions every day so that they may reach their potential and thrive.

We would both like to extend a heart-felt thank you to all of our sponsors, players, and volunteers who made this event so great.  Also, a special thank you to Green Valley Country Club for providing the beautiful clubhouse and golf course for our tournament.
