Working For Every Person in Every Community

United Way of Fort Smith Area staff and Board of Directors are excited to host the 2022 United Way Classic Golf Tournament, presented by Cherokee Casino and Hotel Roland and Legends Resort and Casino Arkansas.  This year’s tournament will be held June 6th – 11th at Hardscrabble Country Club in Fort Smith, and feature over 150 PGA hopefuls. United Way was selected and given an opportunity to host the All Pro Tour (APT) beginning in 2020.  Since then, the United Way Classic has raised over $145,000 for local non-profit partner agencies of United Way!
