MOLINE, IL – The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley (BGCMV) announced today that PGA Tour professionals Jordan Spieth and Brian Harman will again appear at its annual golf fundraiser, Tuesday, July 7, at Short Hills Country Club in East Moline, IL.

Spieth was PGA Tour rookie of the year in 2013 and 2013 John Deere Classic (JDC) champion. Harman was the 2014 JDC champion – marking the second year in a row that the eventual JDC champion started the week by appearing at the BGCMV golf event.

“Based on the last two years, it seems that attending the Boys and Girls Clubs golf outing is good luck if you want to win the John Deere Classic,” said Gregg Ontiveros, Group O CEO and BGCMV 2015 Invitational Co-Chair. “We appreciate the support that Jordan and Brian provide for our local kids – and for helping make the Invitational such a special event.”

The BGCMV 2015 Invitational offers attendees a full day of golf and networking, culminating with a mini-pro-am shootout with Spieth and Harman.  Other highlights include:

  • A variety of hospitality stations and music located across the course
  • Amazing silent auction and golfer swag bags
  • An on-the-course after party (open to non-golfers), including music and dinner

    “The Invitational is a fun way that all of us can come together for a great cause – and help kids develop skills for a better future,” said Ontiveros, “Many of last year’s participants told us it was the best golf event they’ve ever attended – and we’re looking to build on that this year.”

    Now in its 14th year, the Invitational has helped raise more than $1.5 million since 2002.  This year’s fundraising goal is $300,000, with all proceeds benefiting the BGCMV. Title sponsors for the 2015 Invitational include US Bank and Group O.
