Welcome to the Panhandle Charitable Open
A Premier Charity Golf Event
As many of you know, the Panhandle Charitable Open was started in memory of my son John Ryan Peacock, who lost his life in a car accident at the age of 17.
John Peacock Chairman PCO
Each year, we hold this charity event not only in his memory but to celebrate gifting to our community in his name.
The Panhandle Charitable Open, a 501c3 non-profit organization, has raised thousands of dollars for local charities thanks to the generous support of businesses and individuals like you. This year is our 13th year bringing this event to the local community.
The Panhandle Charitable Open (PCO) is dedicated to serving the needs of our community with emphasis on elderly care, special needs situations for children and feeding the hungry. The PCO focuses its funding on committed, grass roots organizations that rely strongly on volunteer efforts and where foundation support will make a significant difference. All of the net proceeds from our efforts go directly to local charity.
The success in recent years of the PCO enabled our board to donate over $400,000 to charities such as Child Guardians, Inc., Gulf Coast Kid’s House, Council on Aging of West Florida, ARC Gateway, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida, Independence for the Blind, American Cancer Society, and Covenant Hospice. The primary charities for 2014 are Child Guardians, Inc., Council on Aging of West Florida, and Gulf Coast Kid’s House. Increasing the number of charities which participate highlights a goal of the PCO to continue to expand the impact and reach of our golf tournament. The PCO has continued to grow in popularity and success each year.
We welcome your participation in the 13th Annual Panhandle Charitable Open as we continue to build this event into the premier charity golf tournament on the Florida Panhandle.
Today is Saturday December 20, 2014
