Event recap: 7th Annual Vanderbilt MBA Golf Classic

Jun 12, 2018

In May, Youth Villages Middle Tennessee hosted the seventh annual Vanderbilt MBA Golf Classic in partnership with the Owen Golf Club, an association of the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University, at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tennessee.

We had our most successful year yet, raising more than $56,000 for the YVLifeSet program, which supports youth aging out of foster care make a successful transition into adulthood. We had perfect weather for this sold-out event engaging 32 corporate sponsored and MBA student teams to raise money and awareness for the YVLifeSet program.

The highlight of the event was hearing the stories of our YVLIfeSet participants, who shared their personal success with the YVLifeSet program and how it has impacted their lives. Brandy, one of our YVLifeSet participants, even learned how to hit a golf ball from the Long Drive professional.

A very special thank you to our title sponsor, Megan Smithwick from Parks Realty. Also, thank you to our Golf Sponsors: Dell Nashville, Piedmont Natural Gas, and Helen and Rod Roudi.
