Special thank you to the supporters of the 19th Annual Paul W. Smith Golf Classic to benefit children's charities which was held on July 11, 2022 at the Detroit Golf Club.  More than $480,000 was raised to support the needs of children in our community.  

The Paul W. Smith Golf Classic benefits four charities:  Variety the Children's Charity, Detroit PAL, The Children's Center and the Children’s Foundation.

Stay tuned for information on the 2023 outing which will mark 20 years of life-changing support through the Paul W. Smith Golf Classic. 

The tournament has raised more than $5.5 million net to support children's programming.  Since the tournament’s inception in 2004, Paul W.
