The 2010 Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge will be held on the 9th of November in the Rio Secco Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada. This is the only professional golf tournament that actually pits three players from the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours against each other. This tournament has a purse of $1 million up for grabs and the event’s primary beneficiary is the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
The Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge has been going strong for 18 years now and they have raised more than $30 million for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. This foundation was created back in 1992 with a vision that all children should have a permanent home and a loving family to care for them. They focus on increasing foster care adoption awareness and they also support model adoption service programs.
