We’re once again offering three ways to play golf with fellow fans this Labor Day weekend, all while raising funds for music education.

9th Annual Runaway Open

Registration is open for our annual charity golf tournament for Phish fans, 8/31/24. Once again, we’ll have up to 120 fans, in a shotgun start, preceded by coffee and a group photo. We’ll have on-course contests, but this is all about swingin’ sticks with fans for charity. So, don’t sweat it if you’re rusty, new to the game, or prioritizing fun over competition – so are we!

Register here, today! Registration covers all cart, greens, and tournament fees, including the shotgun structure (pricey to arrange on a Labor Day Saturday!); coffee, lunch, and a drink ticket; a gift bag of limited-edition event items as well as items contributed by sponsors; and a nominal charitable margin to support music education grants. Some sponsorship options are listed on the registration page, but we welcome your suggestions.

2nd Annual Wingsuit Open

We’re also gearing up for the return of the disc golf tournament which Matt James spun up last year, to satisfy known demand and help raise more funds for music education. The 2nd Annual Wingsuit Open will also be Saturday August 31st in Denver, and Registration is now open.

5th Annual Virtual Open

Those unable to be on site can still join in the fun and charity fundraising by taking part in the virtual component – our 5th Annual Virtual Open – using the same 18Birdies app we’ve used since the Fifth Annual went fully online in 2020. This will be an 18-hole, stroke-play event, on any course you want to play, any day from August 22 to September 4. Those who participate and make a donation of at least $70 to the Mockingbird Foundation before that window closes, will be sent the same limited-edition event merch being handed out on site, all with the Runaway Open logo.

To play, join the tournament at 18birdies.onelink.me/IdkR/jccqsyjf, or by using tournament code 82868 on the app, or the QR Code below. Those participating on-site may also be interested in joining the virtual tournament. The app has lots of embedded services, offers a free trial period to test it’s distance and training features, and includes a gallery and chat space for those participating.
