Where Community, Learning and Environment Come Together

Arnie’s Army Marches On

It all began in the 1960’s when Arnold Palmer’s go for broke style of golf bolstered a legion of fans, coined by the press as Arnie’s Army, who lovingly bestowed the title of “The King” upon him not only because of his prowess on the course, but more importantly because of his unfailing sense of kindness and thoughtfulness. 

Arnie’s Army is marching toward a better tomorrow by investing in the well-being and development of children & youth, supporting health & wellness initiatives and strengthening communities and the environment.
