about the classic

Join us for a day full of golf and music, indulging in the things we love, all in support of the international non-profit OneWorld Health.

In 2013, the Commonwealth Cares Foundation partnered with NEEDTOBREATHE on the foundation's annual charity golf tournament with hopes of creating something very special. The focus was to develop an event that not only raised valuable funds but also increased awareness of the mission of OneWorld Health.

This collaborative effort has created a unique, first-class event that combines the best of golf, music and giving. Sponsors enjoy an exclusive opportunity that includes a day of golf on Daniel Island, followed by a stellar concert and VIP After Party. The concert and party feature a celebrity line-up inclusive of athletes, musicians, actors and PGA players that have joined their friends at NEEDTOBREATHE to make this a one-of-a-kind experience.

Participants are invited to choose a celebrity golf experience or a simple standard foursome to join the mission!  All golf sponsorship packages include access to the Can't Miss Concert of the Year. Sponsor opportunities are available at all levels and we invite you to join the fun and help us make a difference with OneWorld Health.


About The Classic

2018 NTB Classic


Behind the Tournament


OneWorld Health, a non-profit organization based in Charleston, SC, is revolutionizing the approach to medical intervention in the developing world by moving beyond relief to achieve long-term improvements in health. In a world where nearly half the population lives on less than $2 per day (Source: UN, 2013), socialized healthcare systems are overcrowded, poorly equipped, and underfunded. 

OWH is bridging the gap between ineffective, socialized care and unaffordable, private care. By creating sustainable medical centers that offer low-cost services, OWH is able to increase accessibility to high-quality healthcare and empower communities for a healthy tomorrow.
