Last August in Splurge!, community and business leaders throughout Wichita shared their favorite memories and experiences of the Air Capital Classic, and called for others to support and solidify the 24-year-old event that has contributed so much to our community. In 2013 alone, the Classic donated over $100,000 to local charities, and had an economic impact of over $4.5 million.

The Air Capital Classic called — our community answered.

The response, Roy Turner says, was “absolutely incredible.” “The response surprised even me, and I have a lot of faith in this community,” says Turner. “We currently have 23 Ambassadors that have signed on for two years and have stabilized our future. The Ambassador Program is a way for community and business leaders to assist in diversifying the sponsorship base. Essentially, rather than having one single title sponsor, the Air Capital Classic has 23 Ambassadors.”

“We’ve been very fortunate,” says Turner, adding the fact that the tournament is still looking for more Ambassadors for the 2014 and 2015 tournaments. One of the most recent Ambassador additions to an already very impressive list has been Volvo of Wichita. “We are very grateful to Scott Davies and Volvo, they really stepped up.”

Are you someone who is proud of the Air Capital Classic and what it has to offer? Are you simply someone who is proud to call Wichita home? “That’s who these people are - they are proud of the community, and proud of the tournament.” Most of the people that come on board to support the tournament do so because they recognize what an incredible community event it is, and see firsthand all of the wonderful things it accomplishes for local charities. This inherent pride in the community is something that goes both ways — the Air Capital Classic is proud of Wichita, too.
