2020 Purple Tee Golf Classic 

Good news -- Metro Bethesda Rotary Club will hold our largest fundraiser of the year, the Purple Tee Golf Classic this year! Due to the pandemic, though, this fundraiser will have a slightly different look. We'll still be able to golf in person -- Whiskey Creek Golf Course has given us reassurances that they will do all the recommended COVID precautions. However, we've moved the date from late spring to September. Also, our silent auction will be held online instead of in the Clubhouse.

So off we go! We encourage each and every one of you to participate, either as a golfer, sponsor, volunteer, or all three! Please check out the 2020 Purple Tee event flyer that provides details on the various levels of participation.

Bid on our online Silent Auction Items and purchase Raffle Tickets here. Bidding closes at 1pm on Sept. 30!

Purple Tee Supports Wounded Vets

With the COVID Pandemic, many outpatient mental health programs for veterans are on hold or being held virtually. Some residential mental health facilities have closed. Under these conditions, suicide hotline calls by veterans were up by 12% in March, just a few weeks into the crisis. More than ever, we need to support organizations like SMGA and Team River Runners who directly support our wounded veterans by using golf and kayaking as therapy to improve their mental and physical well being.
