5th Annual Million Dollar Golf Shot

United Way invites you to swing for a chance at one million dollars

HAGERSTOWN, MD (May 4, 2022) — United Way of Washington County, MD is gearing up for the 5th Annual Million Dollar Golf Shot. It's a chance for visitors to win up to a million dollars simply by taking a swing. This is a fundraising event scheduled to take place at Fountain Head Country Club on Thursday, June 2nd, beginning at 4 pm. All are encouraged to attend and enjoy games of chance, dinner, and music. One hundred percent of proceeds are guaranteed to stay here in our community to support the health, education, financial stability, and basic needs of Washington County residents.


Prospective visitors might have participated in golf tournaments before but may not be familiar with how a golf shot works. To play, competitors swing during a qualifying round and must get as close to the identified hole as possible. The 16 closest contestants move onto the “Million Dollar Shot” round. Finalists each get one attempt at a hole in one. Should a contestant make this shot successfully, the million-dollar prize would be paid as a 40-year annuity.


Despite a number of rain delays, last year’s event successfully raised over $25,000 towards Community Impact Grants that supported such programs like Meals on Wheels, Micah’s Backpack, Common Cents Community Building Initiative, The Financial Education Partnership of Washington County, Medical Adult Day Services, and many more.
