The Frankie Lemmon Golf Classic, now in its 54th year, is the legacy of Ed Shook and Ralph Lang Sr. who wanted to create a special golf event that would help preschool and kindergarten children with special education needs. All proceeds from the event are used to defray costs of education and therapies provided free of charge by the Frankie Lemmon School to qualifying children who reside in Wake County. Public school system funding covers less than 50% of the actual costs to operate the school, making this golf tournament critical to the education and support of the increasing number of children in our area who have developmental delays.

Please join us in a great day of golf and camaraderie as we come together each fall to support children who need our help to achieve their full potential. Whether as a corporate or private donor, your participation, gifts and financial support allow us to continue to provide life.
