Papa John’s Charity Challenge 2017 & 2018–Over $200,000 raised!
Papa John’s has always strived to support our communities and be a champion for those in need. As part of these efforts, we were very proud to introduce Papa John’s Charity Challenge in 2017.
Our Charity Challenge Founders, Charles Burris and Mike Zimmer wanted to provide a venue that mixes the joy they have for golf and their personal dedication to support the fight to end cancer. The goal of the event is to provide funding for cancer research that creates more cancer survivors. So far, we’ve raised over $200,000 in the first two years of the Charity Challenge. All proceeds of this event will go to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.
The Papa John’s Charity Challenge is a first class day of fun and friendship featuring:
- 18 Holes of Golf
- Gift Package
- Survivor Recognition
- Beverage Stations On Course
- Silent Auction
- Live Auction Experience
- $5,000 Raffle Giveaway at Dinner
- Local Sports Celebrities
We want to give a HUGE THANK YOU, to our sponsors and golfers of last year’s Papa John’s Charity Challenge. With your help and support we raised over $115,000 for The James!
