Akron Rotary’s Chili Open Golf Classic presented by Wayne Homes is one of Summit County’s largest and most unique promotional venues. This event will be held on Saturday, February 3, 2024, at Hale Farm and Village in Bath, Ohio.

While the purpose of the Chili Open is to raise operating funds for the Rotary Camp for Children with Special Needs, the event is an ideal cause marketing opportunity for Summit County businesses.

The contents of this Sponsorship Benefits Guide explain the extensive exposure available to companies, foundations and individuals that choose to partner with the Akron Rotary’s Chili Open. Benefit packages have been designed to provide choices to fit any budget. However, anyone that is interested in creating their own package should discuss their needs with any Akron Rotarian or by calling Amanda Warner at 330.644.4512 or mailto:amandaw@akronymca.org



Thank you to our 2024 Chili Open Partners.

Presenting Sponsor - Wayne Homes

Wayne Homes didn’t invent custom, on-your-lot homebuilding. But for over 50 years, we’ve been working hard to reinvent it. To make it more customer-oriented. More affordable. And even more flexible, with practically unlimited customizable choices. In other words, to make it more do-able for more people.

That’s our mission. And we’re happy to say we’ve made some great strides. Our customer satisfaction rating is among the best in the industry, and we’re one of a handful of builders in the entire country to win the National Housing Quality award.
