“We are truly grateful to be hosting the 14th Annual Eric Medlen Memorial Golf Tournament.

We hope to surpass one million dollars in total donations to PMCH this year, and together, celebrate Eric’s memory and legacy.”

Since 2009, the memorial event has donated over $850,000 to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital (PMCH).
