The Dr. Henry E. Holloway Memorial Golf Tournament was first held in September 2010. The inaugural tournament was played at Mystery Valley Golf Course in Stone Mountain, Georgia. The tournament is name in honor of Dr. Henry E. Holloway, Jr., an emergency room physician who died in April 2010. Dr. Holloway was an active member of Project Uplift and worked tirelessly with students throughout DeKalb County. In honor of his contributions, the foundation started this event so that his work with students can be carried on through the years.
Since the tournament’s inception in 2010, Project Uplift has raised over $350,000 to contribute to young students in DeKalb and Rockdale Counties. In support of Dr. Holloway’s vision, Project Uplift presents its premier scholarship award to a male student committed to attending medical school and advancing to becoming a physician. This effort exemplifies Project Uplift’s goal of community support and empowerment.
Our annual tournament will be played on Friday, September 22nd, 2023 at Sugar Creek Golf Course. You can register up until 9am, the day of the tournament. The tournament has a shotgun start of 10am.
The in-person registration for play at Sugar Creek is $125 per golfer. If you choose not to play but want to make a donation, we are requesting $50.00 or whatever you deem appropriate. We are hoping that your contribution of $50.00, and the recruitment of other likeminded golfers and contributors will help us to continue to sponsor young men toward their academic aspirations.
Your support truly makes the difference in the lives of our young scholars.
