American Red Cross & Front & Back 9 Golf
During Sickle Cell Awareness Month in September, the American Red Cross and Front and Back 9 Golf are excited to bring you the Front & Back 9 Annual Golf Classic scheduled for Saturday, September 9, 2023, at Lochmere Golf Club, 2511 Kildaire Farm Rd, Cary, NC 27511, benefitting American Red Cross and Front and Back 9 Junior Golf Academy.
The American Red Cross emphasizes the importance of a diverse blood supply to help meet the needs of those with sickle cell disease – the most common inherited blood disorder in the U.S. To help ensure patients have the blood products they need, the American Red Cross is working with Front and Back 9 Junior Golf Academy to grow the number of blood donors who are Black through the sickle cell initiative. Our partnership is in alignment with the American Red Cross ‘Joined by Blood’ Campaign.
Front and Back 9 Junior Golf Academy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community organization that was created to expose youth ages 6-18 to the various aspects of the sport and to increase the pipeline of minority golfers. Front and Back 9 Junior Golf Academy is innovative and different from other athletic programs in that it promotes the game of golf, leadership, and entrepreneurship. Serving Raleigh, N.C., and surrounding areas, Front & Back 9 Junior Golf Academy provides athlete training/golf lessons and hosts junior golf tournaments.
