The Frankie Lemmon Golf Classic, now in its 56th year, is the legacy of Ed Shook and Ralph Lang Sr. who wanted to create a special golf event to help preschool and kindergarten children with special education needs.
As a result of Ed and Ralph’s initiative and the continued commitment of those who follow in their footsteps, this tournament has become the area’s longest-running one-day golf event. All proceeds from the Frankie Lemmon Golf Classic help defray the cost of education and therapies provided free of charge to Frankie Lemmon students. Public school system funding covers only one-third of the actual costs to operate the school, making this golf tournament and other fundraising efforts critical to the education and support of the increasing number of children in our area with developmental delays.
