History of The Hill Country Classic
Over many years and many millions of dollars, the Hill Country Classic has had the honor of supporting many worthy charities. Since the 1990s, we have had the honor of making a difference in the lives of children. This year is no different.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been one of our best relationships yet and in the past two years more than $500,000 has been raised to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. We are excited to work with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation again for 2018, and we have many new things in store for you!
Thanks to our generous Presenting Sponsor, the Accountable Alliance/USA Senior Care Network, the Hill Country Classic will continue it’s “Austin Vibe” for all who join in the fun. Our friends in the insurance industry and key regulatory officials, as well as many of our friends and family, will be able to once again enjoy the experience that only the Hill Country Classic delivers – exceptional heart, incredible golf, and the casual fun and excitement that pairs with supporting a great cause.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
What is cystic fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
The CF Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis, and nearly every CF-specific drug available today was made possible with their financial support. They are a donor-funded, 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is fully accredited by the Better Business Bureau's (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance program.
