Join us, Monday, June 19th at Fox Chapel Golf Club for the 17th Annual Woodlands Golf Classic to support The Woodlands’ mission of enriching the lives of children and adults with disability and chronic illness. As one of The Woodlands’ key events, the Golf Classic provides a day of friendly, competitive play on one of the region’s premier golf courses.

Unique to the event is The Spirit of Golf Award, which is presented annually to an individual who has demonstrated an extraordinary level of personal, professional and philanthropic excellence both on and off the golf course. The award was created to capture the essence of the great legacy of giving that is associated with the sport of golf.

We are delighted to announce the 2017 Spirit of Golf Awardee is Mr. Patrick A. Gallagher, Chief Executive Officer of PGT Trucking, Inc. Mr. Gallagher founded PGT Trucking, Inc. in 1981 with one tractor and two employees. Since that time, he has grown his business into a full-service transportation firm offering flatbed, international, and specialized hauling services. PGT Trucking, Inc. is headquartered in Aliquippa, PA, and has terminals throughout the United States and Mexico.

In recognition of Mr. Gallagher’s generosity to the Pittsburgh area community, The Woodlands is honored to acknowledge his charitable efforts through the presentation of The Spirit of Golf Award at the Golf Classic on June 19th.
