The event will also feature a silent auction as well as an awards luncheon following the completion of the tournament, which has as its lead sponsor Wespath Institutional Investments, the pensions agency of the United Methodist Church.

“Westpath’s support, along with the move to a premier South Carolina golf course and the efforts of a new organizing team, is taking the event to a new level,” said James H. "Jim" Salley, Africa University’s chief advance officer. “Westpath’s business is the church and they have chosen to invest in scholarships, apportionments and the $50 million Campaign for Africa University.”
