August Executives’ Breakfast
Calling all golf enthusiasts! August 17th’s Executives’ Breakfast, featuring Jeff Fitch, is an event you won’t want to miss. Find out what the headlines won’t tell you at this month’s Breakfast with an inside look “behind the scenes” into the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, returning for its second year to the Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course in Henrico County. Thank you to our August sponsor, Henrico EDA, the Henrico Economic Development Authority.
Jeff Fitch serves as a Sales Manager for the PGA TOUR and the Dominion Energy Charity Classic. In this role, he is responsible for building community and corporate support for the PGA TOUR Champions tournament, which will be held in October on The Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course.
Prior to joining the PGA TOUR, Jeff served for 11 years as the Director of Development and Corporate Sponsorship for the Sports Backers. Working alongside his peers at the nationally recognized sports commission, Jeff helped strengthen the sports landscape in the Richmond region by working on events like Dominion Riverrock, the Anthem Richmond Marathon and the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k.
The second-annual PGA TOUR event will be played October 19 – 22, 2017 at the Country Club of Virginia, James River Course. The top 72 players from the regular season will travel to Richmond to compete. Among this year’s returning PGA TOUR golfers are Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, John Daly, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Tom Lehman and Kenny Perry.
In 2016, Scott McCarron birdied the first playoff hole in dramatic fashion to win the inaugural Dominion Energy Charity Classic. We will look for more golf excitement as the PGA returns to Richmond to write golf history.
Enjoy a little breakfast while hearing a “hole” lot about the PGA TOUR event coming to Richmond.
