The tournament benefits the WGRG Foundation, which offers fellowships to deserving college students looking to pursue a career in Government Relations. John Rosenthall is the tournament organizer, which was held on the South Course at Andrews Air Force Base.

The WGRG helps foster both professional and social advancement amongst its membership through a variety of regularly scheduled educational programming and events that bring together stakeholders and key leaders from the public and private sectors.

Additionally, the WGRG has a non-profit charitable giving arm, the WGRG Foundation, which, among other efforts, helps fund the Terri Grier Memorial Fellowship Program for African--American students in their final year of undergraduate or graduate study in political science or public/government affairs.
