It is the mission of the Wichita Open to significantly impact the economy, quality of life and charitable organizations in the City of Wichita, Sedgwick County, and the State of Kansas by hosting a Professional Golf Association (PGA TOUR) tournament and related events.

The Wichita Open Ambassador program encourages and provides a way for its members to get involved by:

  • Raising Charitable Donations for Local and National Organizations
  • Improving the Overall Quality and Success of the Event
  • Stabilizing the Tournament’s Future

Since the inception of the Wichita Open Ambassadors, $850,000 has been raised for local charities. PEC is looking forward to the 2019 tournament!

2018 Tour de Cure: April 28 

PEC sponsored Wichita's Tour de Cure at the Aloft Hotel on April 28, 2018. Team PEC had over 70 members who raised over $17,500! 

Team PEC is working to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event not just because over 30 million people in the US have diabetes, but because so many of us personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.
