We are making decisions with health and safety as our top priority and are closely following the CDC guidelines and recommendations. The data continues to prove the best way to avoid getting severely ill from COVID-19 or transmitting it to others is to get vaccinated; however, at this time vaccinations are not required to attend any of the Charity Classic events. In addition, at this time you will not be required to wear a mask at any of the Charity Classic venues.

We will continue to closely monitor all conditions related to COVID-19 and will adjust our safety protocols, if needed, to keep our attendees safe. As we get closer to Charity Classic, more information will be shared on safety measures you can expect to help you enjoy the event safely.
