The 7th Annual Ag World Golf Classic hosted in August
The vision grows to TWO locations for 2020
Ag World Golf Classic was born out of a vision to help families with children who have severe medical needs. The late Warren Henninger, Founder/Chairman of Ag World Support Systems, caught the vision to host a Columbia Basin event to support the Ronald McDonald House Inland Northwest in Spokane, Washington. Having a grandson born with many medical needs heightened his desire to help families in similar situations. After several years participating in golf tournaments in the province of Manitoba, Canada for the Ronald McDonald House Canada, Warren Henninger decided to host a similar event here in the Inland Northwest. This vision is called the Ag World Golf Classic.
The 7th Annual Ag World Golf Classic will host TWO LOCATIONS
August 11 in Kennewick, WA, at Canyon Lakes Golf Course
August 13 In Moses Lake, WA, at The Links at Moses Pointe

Through the generosity of sponsors, donors, and golfers, the Ag World Golf Classic has donated $425,647 over the past five years to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest. The tournament is part of Ag World Support System’s campaign to make a difference in the community by supporting the Ronald McDonald House's mission to strengthen local families and promote children’s health.
Please visit the Ronald McDonald House website HERE for more information about how they provide a home away from home for our families when needed.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities Inland Northwest provides temporary lodging, comfort, and support for families with children receiving medical services in Spokane, Washington, and supports related efforts to improve children’s health in the region. When children are experiencing a medical crisis and hospitalized in Spokane, their families are provided a home away from home at the Ronald McDonald House free of charge.
RMHC is also branching out to provide mobile medical facilities as well as setting up micro stations in area hospital lounges to help out families and patients. This year, RMHC is building a new facility just across the street from its current location to serve even more families.
Just the local Spokane facility has provided over 2500 nights of lodging and meals. Up to 27% of its beneficiaries are from the Columbia Basin area. This gives it a naturally home-based reason that the late Warren Henninger and his family have made this an annual event, as there is a huge core group of farmers and families that know what giving to those in need entails.
Mike Forness, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House Inland Northwest in Spokane, Washington said, “We are able to support so many families because of the help of generous donors from the Ag World Golf Classic! On behalf of the families and children that stay at the Ronald McDonald House, we say ‘Thank you Ag World’! We see your family values, work values, and church values as major reasons this fundraiser is so successful.”
This year, Ag World Support Systems is again joined by co-hosts Simplot, Lamb Weston, McCain Foods, and Potato Growers of Washington to help make this event even greater than past events. The Ag World Golf Classic continues to be a fun event enjoyed by everyone.
The excitement of the 2019 tournament’s success still lingers in the minds of those who worked tirelessly to see this event happen. Warren Henninger's words from last year's event say it all...“The tournament was again blessed with great weather, attendance, and generous participation! We are grateful to our hosts, sponsors, donors, many golfers, and supporters who made this event such a huge success. Ag World is honored to support this worthy cause! To God Be The Glory!”
