The Annual East Utica Classic Charity Golf Tournament was started in 2011 by residents in East Utica.

The tournament has grown in size since and has been able to donate thousands of dollars to local families in need. This year all proceeds will go to the Demkowitch Family for the medical needs of their newborn inflicted with Spina Bifida. The speed in which this event has grown and the way the area has embraced our goal of giving back to the community that has given us so much is awe inspiring.

The tournament itself is quickly becoming a “can’t miss” annual event for one reason only. Not because of the great food and drinks. Not because of the golf or the great atmosphere. It isn’t any of those things, although they are all present and accounted for every year. It’s because the event embodies all the best of East Utica. East Utica’s generosity is there. Our respect and loyalty to our community permeates through the room. The spirit of Utica comes alive the minute you walk into the event. We encourage everyone to join us on August 24th. Sponsor a hole. Buy a ticket for dinner. Come by that day and support a family in need and let them know that Utica is there for them just like Utica has been there for all of us.
