Save the Date for the 2021 Bill Warner Sr. Memorial Charity Golf Classic

January 14, 2021

Mark your calendars for Monday, September 27, 2021 for the sixth biennial Bill Warner Sr. Memorial Charity Golf Classic! The event will be held at both Wakonda Club and Des Moines Golf & Country Club to accommodate the growing number of participants.

“We are so excited to announce and be able to safely continue the Golf Classic in 2021,” said Bill Warner Jr., Merchants Senior Vice President of Operations and Corporate Secretary. “It’s something everyone looks forward to and is one of the impactful ways Merchants gives back to our community.”

The 2021 Golf Classic will raise money for the “Vision to Learn” program sponsored by Variety - the Children’s Charity of Iowa and United Way of Central Iowa. “Vision to Learn” provides two free pairs of eyeglasses to children in need who can’t afford them. They work with schools, charities and community organizations to bring mobile clinics with trained eye care professionals to children who have gone without eye care. The program gives these children a chance to succeed that they would not have had otherwise. 

Be on the lookout for more information on registration, ways to support and more! If you have any further questions about the upcoming tournament, please contact Shelby Boyd. (
