Join us for the Chili Open Golf Classic!



Join New Avenues to Independence at the Chili Open Golf Classic on February 22nd from 9am to 4pm at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds hosted by the Rotary Club of Strongsville! New Avenues has been selected by the Rotary Club to be a recipient of the proceeds from the outing. We also are looking for volunteers to assist with the event.


It's more than a refreshing game of winter golf...

The Chili Open Golf Classic is a full day of fun, including:

  • Golf
  • Celebrity auction
  • Grand Prize Raffle - this year try for a dugout loge for 10 at an Indians game
  • Hourly 50/50 drawings
  • All the great food you can eat, including Wendy's chili
  • Beer
  • Contests, games and prizes
  • And it's all for charity

With the generous support of area businesses like title sponsor Blaster Chemical the Chili Open Golf Classic, organized by the Rotary Club of Strongsville, has raised more than $2 million for charity since 1992.

The all-volunteer event has become a February tradition in Northeastern Ohio, drawing nearly 1,000 golfers who tee off into blasts of frigid air, putt across frosty greens and warm up in a hall full of hot food and sizzling activities, like the action-packed celebrity auction.
