Over the last 60 years, Mad Anthonys Charity Classic has been one of the country’s premier charity golf events in the country, raising millions of dollars for charitable organizations in Fort Wayne. We’ve hosted some of the brightest stars in golf and entertainment. Pros like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Sam Snead, Lee Trevino, Ben Hogan, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Curtis Strange, Cathy Gerring, Fred Couples, Juli Inkster, Tom Lehman and Fuzzy Zoeller, to name just a few.
On the evening before the Charity Classic, the Mad Anthonys host the annual Red Coat Dinner. In addition to celebrating of the accomplishments of the Foundation, the Mad Anthonys bestow the traditional Red Coat Recipient honor upon those individuals who have made a significant difference in our region. Our Red Coat Recipients include nationally known Neil Armstrong, Bob Griese, Peyton Manning and Vice President Mike Pence.
All proceeds from the Mad Anthonys Charity Classic and Red Coat Dinner will go to the Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House.
