Hunter Classic returns to Davenport

The annual golf outing in Davenport helps raise money for the HAVlife foundation.

DAVENPORT, Iowa — The Hunter Classic returns this year on Monday, Oct. 4 at the Crow Valley Golf Club with the goal to raise money for the nonprofit HAVlife foundation.

The Quad Cities chapter of the foundation stated its mission is to prevent lost potential in children between ages 10-15 through involving them in activities they may otherwise miss out on, like art, music and athletics.

Last year, the golfing event raised over $40,000 for the foundation.

"Every dollar raised will be going to the mission of prevention of loss potential here in the Quad Cities through HAVlife," Founder Mike Vondran said. "So, what we are hoping for through the day is that we raise a few dollars for the mission and everyone has a great time. it looks like the weather is going to be awesome we have a great field of golfers."

"HAV" stands for Hunter Aaron Vondran, the founder's son. Hunter lost his life at just thirteen in a water park accident. 

Registration for the event starts at 11 a.m., and golf starts at noon following a shotgun start.
