"See these little faces?" said Aaron Baumgartner, CEO of the Putnam YMCA. "That's just a little I guess sample of where this money goes, who it benefits. A lot of the children's programs that are coming up in the fall and winter, the aquatics program."

In the 20 years of the Black Swamp Golf Classic, more than $2.2 million has been donated.
