2022 Longball22 Classic is a success

The second-annual Longball22 Classic, held July 22 at Grand Falls Casino & Resort in Larchwood, Iowa, was another successful, meaningful gathering to raise awareness and funds for student mental health. This event honors Ben Longley, a college student who died by suicide in 2020.

This year, 37 teams of four competed in the tournament, more than 250 guests were in attendance, and together, we raised over $80,000 for peer-led student mental health and suicide prevention programming. Thanks to an anonymous match partway through the evening, we surpassed our fundraising goal and are able to make a major impact in our communities.

With over 100 silent auction items donated from local businesses and individuals, a live performance by Nashville singer/songwriter Blessing Offor, and a sold-out tournament of 150 golfers, the outpouring of community, love, and resilience was certainly felt at this year’s Classic.
