Essence Charity Golf Open Returns to Minneapolis

Essence will host the second annual Essence Charity Golf Open at The Wilds golf course in Lake Prior, MN on Tuesday, August 13th. 

The Open brings together some of the biggest brands in technology, advertising, and media, along with local business leaders to give back to Minnesota. The winning team will select a Minnesota nonprofit organization to receive a corporate donation of more than $40,000 made possible by sponsors and supporting partners. Last year, 14 teams competed at the event with the winners selecting Minnesota Education nonprofit Adopt A Classroom’s “Teachers First Fund” as recipients of the $29,500 donation.

Jason Harrison, President and Client Partner, commented: “We’re thrilled to be bringing the Essence Charity Open back to Minneapolis this year and to be able to do it in a way that is even more impactful. We’re proud to be part of the Minneapolis business community and to provide a way for so many industry leaders in tech, media, and advertising to give back to Minnesota.”
