Creighton Farms Invitational

The Creighton Farms Invitational was created in 2012, and was primarily the brainchild of David Southworth, President and CEO of Southworth Development LLC, which owns and operates Creighton Farms, a community featuring an award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Loudoun County, Va. Even Southworth is amazed at the success of the event in its young history.Gala Dinner view from the balcony. Luciana Pedraza, Robert Duvall, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus.

The Seventh Annual Creighton Farms Invitational, held on June 23-25, hosted by Jack Nicklaus raised a record $1.43 million for children’s health charities.

Beneficiaries of the 2018 Creighton Farms Invitational were the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and The National PKU Alliance, two organizations providing support to children’s health care and rare disease initiatives.

The three-day event was larger and featured more interactive events than in previous years, with the addition of a Welcome Par-Tee and Concert at Fox Chase Farm, featuring Adriel Genet, headliner Edwin
McCain, and DJ No Requests (Roger Clemens) on Saturday evening, June 23.

The following night, Golf Channel’s Charlie Rymer hosted the annual gala dinner and auction for nearly 350 attendees at Fox Chase Farm where over $500,000 was raised. Additionally, Jack Nicklaus entertained the crowd during a fireside chat.

The 2018 Creighton Farms Invitational had many wonderful partners and sponsors including: Ron & Teresa Fishbeck; Mosaic Home Interiors; Buhl Electric Company; Savvee Consulting, Inc.; KPMG; Terathink; John & Gretchen Zeltner; and the Michaux Family Foundation.
