Through the generosity of our sponsors and donors, the Ag World Golf Classic has donated $234,480 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest over the past four years. The tournament is part of Ag World's campaign to make a difference by supporting the Ronald McDonald House's mission to strengthen local families and promote children’s health. By participating in the Ag World Golf Classic, golfers and sponsors are able to join the Ronald McDonald House in helping critically ill, chronically ill, and seriously injured children and their families stay together during their medical care.
The Ag World Golf Classic is an 18-hole scramble which includes great food and fun with barbeques along the course, a cart for ease of play, all followed by an ice cream bar social. Registration begins at 11:00am with a shot gun start at 11:45am.
In addition to joining the Ag World Golf Classic as a golfer, you can also consider being a sponsor. There are several levels of sponsorships, all providing exposure to potential business partners at the same time supporting a great cause.

Area agriculture producers, processors, and industry businesses rose to the challenge and set a new event record by raising $73,492 to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the Inland Northwest at the 4th Annual Ag World Golf Classic held on Wednesday, June 14th at Canyon Lakes Golf Course in Kennewick, Washington. Through the generosity of 118 Sponsors/Donors and 144 golfers this year’s event was a huge success!
The Ag World Golf Classic presented this $73,492 check to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Inland Northwest last month after finalizing all donations. This donation was made possible through the incredible generosity of sponsors, donors, and golfers.
Ag World Golf Classic was born out of a vision to help families with children who have severe medical needs. Warren Henninger, Founder/Chairman of Ag World Support Systems, caught the vision to host a Columbia Basin event to support the Ronald McDonald House Inland Northwest in Spokane, Washington. Having a grandson born with many medical needs heightened his desire to help families in similar situations. After several years participating in golf tournaments in the province of Manitoba, Canada for the Ronald McDonald House Canada, Warren decided to host a similar event here in the Inland Northwest. This vision is called the Ag World Golf Classic.
Through the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and golfers, the Ag World Golf Classic has donated $233,480 over the past four years to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest. The tournament is part of Ag World Support System’s campaign to make a difference in the community by supporting the Ronald McDonald House's mission to strengthen local families and promote children’s health. This year, Ag World Support Systems was joined by co-hosts Simplot, Lamb Weston, McCain Foods, and Potato Growers of Washington to help make this event even greater than past events.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities Inland Northwest provides temporary lodging, comfort, and support for families with children receiving medical services in Spokane, Washington and supports related efforts to improve children’s health in the region.
Mike Forness, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest in Spokane, Washington said, “Throughout the past 30 years the Ag World Golf Classic is the most significant community fund raiser we have ever seen. On behalf of the families and children that stay at the Ronald McDonald House we say ‘Thank you Ag World’! We see your family values, work values, and church values as major reasons this fundraiser is so successful.”
The excitement of the tournament’s success still lingers in the minds of those who worked tirelessly to see this event happen. Warren Henninger, Founder/Chairman of Ag World Support Systems, and Founder of the Ag World Golf Classic said, “The tournament was again blessed with great weather, attendance and generous participation! We are grateful to our hosts, sponsors, donors, many golfers and supporters who made this event such a huge success. Ag World is honored to support this worthy cause! To God Be The Glory!”
Next year’s event is set for June 13, 2018, at Canyon Lakes Golf Course, in Kennewick, WA. Mark your calendars for an even bigger event!
