Each May, over 100 decision makers and business professionals enjoy a day away from the office by participating in the TGBCC's Annual Revere Bank Golf Classic.  This year's event will be held on Monday, May 6 at Whiskey Creek Golf Club

This day of networking and competitive fun is a much anticipated event each year. Many non-golfers also attend the awards banquet to celebrate the day's winners and enjoy the presentation to the year's chosen non-profit recipient. We are pleased that each year a portion of the proceeds benefit a Chamber member non-profit as designated by Revere Bank. We hope you will join us on May 6 as a sponsor and /or player and be a part of this year's Revere Bank Golf Classic.
