The Don Holliday Memorial Foundation (a 501-C3 Charitable Corporation) was formed in 1986 to honor the memory of Don Holliday. District Sales Manager of Piedmont Airlines. The Don Holliday Memorial Scholarship Fund was initially funded by Pace Magazine the in-flight publication of Piedmont Airlines. The first Don Holliday Memorial Golf Tournament took place in June 1987 with the proceeds going to the Scholarship Fund for the past 33 years. The Don Holliday Memorial Golf Tournament has grown to one of the top charity events in the state. We have awarded over $430,000 in scholarships. The scholarship is administered by the Roanoke Valley Golf Hall of Fame which each year awards a (4 year $30,000 scholarship) to a deserving boy or girl from Southwest Virginia who also has an interest in golf.
