Renowned African-American golf professional and author Rose Harper will join the Creative and Performing Arts Center (CAPAC, Inc.) on Friday, August 19 for a special fundraiser, “CAPAC’s Nine with Wine: Women’s Empowerment Golf Workshop, Clinic and Nine Holes” at the Stonewall Golf Club in Gainesville, VA. This fundraiser is designed for emerging and experienced golfers and will take place rain or shine. Golf clubs will be provided for emerging golfers. You’re invited to help CAPAC to “Sustain the Arts by Empowering Women Through Golf”.

Rose Harper spent 25 years on the PGA tour circuit, and she has worked with the world’s best players, including Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods. She began the Golf Digest Minority Golf Summit, instituted a minority joint venture golf course design team, reorganized PGA player credentials, was the first person of color to run a full concession eighteen-hole golf complex for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and she organized the first multi-racial sporting event in the history of South Africa.

In 1995, Ms. Harper began her company, The Grass Ceiling, to share her golf knowledge and expertise with women and minorities. Two years ago, she wrote her first book, “The Art of the Deal: Golf – Access to Success,” in which she draws parallels between life, business and the game of golf.

On August 19, Ms. Harper will share her years of golf expertise and knowledge when she facilitates a workshop and golf clinic at CAPAC’s special fundraiser. Guests will also be treated to lunch, served wine by CAPAC male supporters and will receive an autographed copy of “The Art of the Deal: Golf – Access to Success”.

“Ms. Harper is an exceptional woman with vast achievements in the golf and business worlds. CAPAC is thrilled she is joining us to impart her knowledge at our event,” said CAPAC Founder Denise M. McPhail.

Since its inception in 2002, CAPAC has been committed to engaging and interacting with the community-at-large, connecting each of its programs with community service projects through education, outreach, or business and community partnerships. The funds raised at this event will help the organization cover the costs of its upcoming production, Langston Hughes’ “Black Nativity,” and other future productions and endeavors.
