The event will benefit the St. Nicholas Orphanage in Medzilaborec, Slovakia and the Holy Cross Orphanage and the Children's Wing of the Uzhgorod Regional Medical Center in Uzhgorod, Ukraine.

The captain and crew golf tournament is scheduled for a shotgun start at 9AM. The cost is $100 per participant or $400 per team. The registration fee includes 18 holes of golf and two carts per team. Beverages will be provided for participants on the course. A dinner will follow at Endwell Greens. Men and Women as well as Mixed teams are encouraged to participate.

Individuals who don't play golf but wish to support the tournament may purchase a $40 dinner ticket. The price includes dinner with the golfers following the competition and entry into the doorprize contest. Tournament golf shirts will be available at a cost of $30.

All net proceeds from this event will be divided between the St. Nicholas Orphanage in Medzilaborce, Slovakia, and the Holy Cross Orphanage and the Children's Wing of the Uzhgorod Regional Medical Center in Uzhgorod, Ukraine.

Prior support for the children of these facilities was initiated with the approval and support of the late +Metropolitan Nicholas. The International Children's Classic tournament was founded in the same spirit of compassion for these children in need.
