Dear Current and Future Charity Challenge Sponsors,

We would like to invite you to become a sponsor for The 26th Annual Charity Challenge of Champions Tennis and Golf Event. This year’s event will be held September 14-18, 2017, with both our tennis and golf tournaments being held at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Arkansas.

We are excited to have Mr. Ashley Buchanan, Chief Merchandising Officer for Sam’s Club and Mr. Jeff Evans, Senior Vice President of Walmart Apparel as our 2017 Honorary Co-Chairs. In addition, our Thursday Night VIP Sponsor and Tennis Pro Recognition Event (Title, Signature, Platinum, and Diamond Sponsors only) will be held at the home of Jeff and Krista Evans, Senior Vice President of Walmart Apparel.

Over the past 25 years, The Charity Challenge of Champions has raised over $4 million, and, last year, over $200,000 for the Arkansas Crisis Center. During this period, we have helped to provide a $1 million endowment to support the continued work of the Crisis Center for years to come.

After assessing the needs of the community, we have decided to transition our support to the NWA Women’s Shelter (NWAWS). NWAWS helps families in Northwest Arkansas that are in crisis due to domestic abuse or sexual abuse. Each year, NWAWS provides hope to over 2000 victims of violence through its crisis hot line, safe shelter and advocacy to over 500 people (women, children, and men), and ongoing support to over 200 survivors.

This spectacular event encompasses a pro clinic, a VIP sponsor recognition event, a 2-day tennis tournament featuring world-renowned celebrity pros, two exciting social events, a 5K Reflection Run, and a 1-day golf tournament. Our intimate Live Auction and Dinner will again be held at Pinnacle Country Club’s Clubhouse on Saturday, as The Grand Finale to this fabulous event.

Our casual Sponsor Party will now be held Friday evening, under the tent and courtside. This will include live entertainment, along with dinner, dancing, silent auction and optional tennis through the evening.

We would be honored if you choose to be a sponsor of this event. Please complete and return the attached Sponsor Commitment Form to confirm your participation in this year’s event! If your company would like to donate items for our goody bags (distribution to over 500), please note this on your Commitment Form. Should you have any questions, please contact us by email at nwacharitychallenge@gmail.com.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support of the Charity Challenge of Champions and the NWA Women’s Shelter!
Sincerely,
Angie Brandenburg
Executive Director
Charity Challenge of Champions
