Record-Breaking Field at 2022 Orphanos Classic

Spring Creek Ranch  /  Memphis, TN

You may or may not be a golfer, so let me just describe to you what a good weather day on the golf course sounds like:

  • More shady clouds than hot sun
  • No rain
  • Little to no wind
  • Mild temperatures

Well, the Lord sure provided an amazing weather day during our annual Orphanos Classic on Monday, May 23, allowing our record-breaking 34 teams tee off and enjoy a fabulous day.

We were back at the serene Spring Creek Ranch course, where our teams swung through 18 holes, enjoying great prizes, savoring wonderful food and claiming some sweet-looking SWAG. In the end, the day was filled with great sponsors, participants and competition. Thanks to all who were involved!

The biggest news about each year’s Classic is how it helps raise support to further our organization’s mission. This one-day tournament raised about 20% of our annual operating budget.

A strong involvement at the golf tournament combined with a fruitful Double December campaign allows Orphanos to pass 100% of your gifts directly to the partner of your choice. The organization’s success in the future is dependent on these events each year.

Many of you give money to our partners but don’t know the full extent of what Orphanos provides. I would encourage you to take two minutes and read the What We Do page on our website (click the big purple button below) to get a better grasp of the organization’s impact.

In 2021, our 39 partners reached over 25,600 kids in 27 countries! All praise to God for allowing a fun day of golf in Memphis, TN benefit vulnerable children across the globe! Thanks to all who participated and we hope many more will return, Lord willing, for the 2023 Orphanos Classic.

Grace & Peace,
