The foundation dedicated to preserving Drew Mings' memory is raising funds for scholarships.

The 2024 Fallbrook Open, a professional golf tournament, returns to the Golf Club of California, March 18-21. Hosted by the Asher Tour, the event brings a talented group of professional golfers to compete for a $20,000 first prize. The event debuted in 2019 and, this year, proceeds will benefit a noble cause with a local impact, The Drew Mings Foundation.

Andrew "Drew" Mings passed away in a tragic car accident on Aug. 24, 2023, at the young age of 23. This foundation is committed to preserving Drew's memory and will honor his legacy by providing scholarships to students who need assistance with their educational goals.

The foundation is also hosting an inaugural fundraising event, the Drew Mings Memorial Tournament, which is dedicated to raising funds to achieve its goals. To be held Sunday, March 24, the Memorial tournament is open to anyone who would like to enjoy a day on the links and support the foundation.

"The Fallbrook Open is very special to me and I know it will be a success." said Michael O'Leary, Executive Director of the Asher Tour. "My personal connection to Drew, the Mings family, the foundation and the Fallbrook community really motivates me to make this the best event on our tour schedule for many years to come."

The Asher Tour and the Drew Mings Foundation invite all golf enthusiasts and philanthropists to be part of this exciting 'Fallbrook Golf Week,' contributing to a worthy cause while enjoying world-class golf action. Don't miss the opportunity to make a positive difference in the community and celebrate the legacy of Andrew "Drew" Mings.
