Can you name the largest single sporting event in the Washington, D.C., metro area? If you said politics, you’re funny but wrong. From June 21-27, the Booz Allen Classic will host more than 180,000 golf fans at the Tournament Players Course at Avenel, where the likes of Justin Leonard, Stuart Appleby, and Chris Dimarco will compete for a $4.8 million purse. And there’s more than one winner at this event. D.C.-area charities will receive a portion of the tourney’s proceeds. Win-wins like this are hard to find in D.C., so don’t miss it. For more information and tickets, call (301) 469-3737 or go to www.booz allenclassic.com.
