Lisa C. Graganella Golf Classic – Monday, March 4, 2019!
Our annual tournament is The Tallahassee Ballet’s largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from this event not only raise the supplemental funds needed to present quality ballet productions annually, but also help to support our many community outreach programs including DanceChance. Through this program, TTB provides tuition-free instruction and dancewear to economically disadvantaged children. Eleven public schools participate in the DanceChance program.
The event is held at the Southwood Golf Club, an upscale 18-hole course designed by PGA professional golfer Fred Couples. Participants enjoy first-class golf and a chance to win one of three top prizes, door prizes and silent auction items donated by TTB’s Board of Directors, dancers and local businesses, ranging from cruises to jewelry and gift certificates.
