The Virginia Peninsula Association of Realtor’s Charitable Foundation is very excited to invite you to our VPAR Charitable Foundation Icon. We are expecting another sellout crowd for golfers.

The tournament will take place on June 19th at Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort. Registration will start at 9:30 with a shotgun start at 11:00AM. The Golf Club has been purchased by the Kiln Creek Home Owners Association and has new management. They have done several course upgrades including new bunkers.

The VPAR Charitable Foundation has been using all the proceeds from this tournament to support the following local charities: HELP, Hampton/Newport News Community Services Board, LINK, Menchville House, Natasha House, Operation Breakthrough and Transitions. We are a 501-C3 nonprofit organization and all profits are returned to the local community.

Attached are both our team registration and sponsorship forms. As I said, this tourney usually sells out, so early registration will secure your team a tee off.
