Mill Creek MetroParks Announces New $100,000.00 Title Sponsor for the American Junior Golf Association’s (AJGA) Junior All Star Tournament at Mill Creek Golf Course
Mill Creek MetroParks is excited to announce a multi-year title sponsorship agreement with the Mercy Health Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, Farmers Trust and the Howard and Jeanne Karr Charitable Foundation and Meridian Healthcare and other organizations for the 7th Annual AJGA Junior All Star Golf Tournament to be held at Mill Creek Golf Course. The four-year sponsorship agreement includes $25,000.00 per year and succeeds the Mahoning Valley Hospital Foundation who held the 2018 – 2021 tournament sponsor title. Since the events inception, the AJGA Junior All Star Tournament has had a financial impact of around $2,000,000.00 in hotel stays, dining, shopping, and included over $70,000.00+ towards local charities.
“We’re excited to have this partnership which collaborates to support this wonderful event that does so much financially for the Mahoning Valley. The local community has enthusiastically embraced the event since its inception in 2016. This event continues to showcase the MetroParks on a national level,” says Brian Tolnar, PGA Golf & Recreation Director.
The 2022 tournament will take place on Mill Creek’s South Golf Course from June 19 – 24 and will consist of a two-part tournament series (Pre-Season Tournament & All Start Tournament). An AJGA Junior Amateur Tournament will be held on Monday, June 20, 2022, for those wishing to play with one of the top junior golfers from around the world.
