The Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to announce that Price Cutter Supermarkets has exercised its option to continue as the title sponsor in 2017.

Tournament Executive Director Jerald Andrews announced the agreement Wednesday, adding that the tournament and Price Cutter are in talks to extend the sponsorship to 2019, the tournament’s 30th year.

With the new agreement, Price Cutter Supermarkets will be the title or presenting sponsor for a 19th consecutive summer. Andrews also announced tournament dates next year are August 4-14 at Highland Springs Country Club, with the pros playing on Aug. 10-13.

“We are proud to call Price Cutter Supermarkets a true friend. They have played a huge role in making this a premier stop on the PGA’s Web.com Tour,” Andrews said. “More importantly, their strong support has enabled the tournament to reach many critical needs of Ozarks-area children’s charities. I couldn’t be more humbled and yet pleased that Price Cutter is willing to step up and go the extra mile with us.”

The tournament has gifted almost $13 million to Ozarks charities in the past 26 years. This year’s efforts will be distributed to 45 charities during the Celebration of Sharing presented by the McQueary Family, set for 11 a.m. on Nov. 29 at Highland Springs Country Club. That’s usually a tearful day, given directors of charities or the families they assist offer thank-yous to the community.

“Supporting the tournament is worth every penny,” said Rob Marsh, Vice President of Sales and Merchandising for Price Cutter Supermarkets. “I’ve always said Celebration of Sharing day makes everything worth it. I tell everybody they need to attend it in order to realize what the tournament means. If you don’t come out of there feeling good, you are not human. We are very passionate about it.”

The community still has time to support the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.

The Harvest Moon Festival presented by Reinhart Foodservice is at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25 at Highland Springs Country Club. It is a great gathering featuring culinary delights from 10 to 12 internationally trained chefs, the Wings of Swing band, wines and seasonal beers, as well as a live auction.

Additionally, the tournament has team spots available in the inaugural Burrell Children’s Services Poker Run Golf Classic on Friday, Sept. 30 at Silo Ridge Country Club in Bolivar.
