Dates set for Sunrise Classic Series in Louisville, Lexington

Sunrise supporters who love golf will have the opportunity to play first-class courses this year in the ninth annual Sunrise Classic Series while teeing off for a great cause to aid Kentucky’s most precious resource – our children. This year’s charity golf tournaments will take place Monday, June 19, at University Club of Kentucky’s Big Blue Course in Lexington, and Monday, July 10, at Hurstbourne Country Club in Louisville.

All proceeds from these events go to Sunrise Children’s Services to enhance critical programs that provide care and therapy for Kentucky’s hurting children and their families.

Both golf events will include one flight with a tee time at 8:30 a.m. ET for Lexington and 10 a.m. ET for Louisville. Registration opens an hour before tee off. Registration fees include the following perks for participants:

  • Meals
  • Special contests and multiple chances to win prizes
  • Team photos
  • Awards ceremony and reception

“While we’re looking forward to two great days of golf and fellowship on these beautiful courses, the abused children we’re playing for will be heavy on our hearts,” said Christi Moffett, Sunrise’s senior director of marketing. “For many years, these golf events have helped provide us with the means of sheltering and protecting hundreds of abused and neglected children each day.”

“It’s wonderful that we can bring together so many of Sunrise’s corporate partners through these fundraisers, and it’s through their support that we’re able to continue helping young people find a path to healing during their time of crisis,” said Dale Suttles, president of Sunrise Children’s Services.

Corporate, individual, and team sponsorship opportunities are still available. Donations are also welcomed and appreciated. To register a team or become a tournament sponsor, please visit
