OUR WHY

At the heart of the NEPA Invitational lies a deep commitment to our community and the spirit of giving back.

 

Just as our beneficiary Janet Weis Children’s Hospital | Geisinger tirelessly cares for children, we are dedicated to fostering a supportive environment for our Community. Our roots are firmly planted in Northeast Pennsylvania, a region that has shaped many individuals, including our founder, professional golfer Brandon Matthews.

Brandon, a native of NEPA, has always held this area close to his heart. He embodies the essence of giving back to the place that has contributed to his growth and success. The NEPA Invitational emerged as his way of returning the love and support he received.

In 2021, we lost a beloved figure, Mr. William Lawler, a tireless supporter of junior golf. His unwavering dedication left an indelible mark on our community. In his memory, we've established The Lawler Scholarship Fund, providing opportunities for deserving junior golfers in NEPA. Beyond golf, we've teamed up with the  Scranton Area Community Foundation to extend our impact to local charitable organizations.

 

In 2022 and 2023, the NEPA Invitational proudly supports the Janet Weis Children’s Hospital | Geisinger as our charitable beneficiary. Your support plays a crucial role in raising funds for this noble cause.

We take immense pride in bringing exceptional individuals to our region for our annual event, creating a tradition that we hope will endure for years to come. Together, we celebrate community, philanthropy, sportsmanship, and the enduring spirit of Northeast Pennsylvania.

At Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, everything we do is about caring for children — from birth through young adulthood.

Our team is dedicated to making exceptional pediatric care available to every child in every community we serve. Our specialty-trained pediatric doctors and nurses provide expertise in more than 30 medical and surgical disciplines, treating common to the most complex pediatric health conditions. In northeastern Pennsylvania, that includes our inpatient units, outpatient clinics and emergency services. We delivered 2,578 babies at Geisinger Community Medical Center and Geisinger Wyoming Valley in 2022.  And for our newborns that require additional care, the Level III Tambur Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is ready to serve.
