About the Tournament

In 2013, the Commonwealth Cares Foundation partnered with South Carolina-based band NEEDTOBREATHE on the foundation’s annual charity golf tournament. By joining forces, they were able to bring even more awareness to an organization close to their hearts.

The result was a golf tournament that raised $80,000 for Palmetto Medical Initiative while giving participants an unforgettable experience of world-class golf, access to music and sports celebrities and an after-party concert unlike any other. We thought the inaugural year was pretty incredible. 

Wonderful sponsors and supporters joined again in 2014 for our second annual event. Through the partnerships and energy of incredibly giving folks, the first benchmark was exceeded. The 2015 Needtobreathe Classic donated an astounding $110,000 for PMI. We gather in 2016 to raise that bar again.

Join us on March 21, 2016 for the fourth annual NEEDTOBREATHE Classic benefiting Palmetto Medical Initiative. Players will tee it up for a day of fun on the challenging Daniel Island Ralston Creek and Beresford Courses developed by renowned golf architects Rees Jones and Tom Fazio. Players will have a chance to pair with celebrity guests from the NFL and MLB, as well as the music industry. All players will be treated to a generous gift bag including signed CDs and other gifts.

After the tournament, VIP guests will enjoy an evening with NEEDTOBREATHE and friends.
