Ellie Mae Classic Dates Announced for 2019

      

HousingWire Returns as Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am Presenting Sponsor with Funds Benefitting The MBA Opens Doors Foundation

HAYWARD, Calif. – The Web.com Tour and Ellie Mae announced today dates for the 2019 Ellie Mae Classic. The tournament will return to TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, California, the week of July 29 - August 4, as the penultimate event of the Tour's Regular Season.

In addition to the 2019 date, the tournament also announced that HousingWire, the most influential source of news and information for the U.S. mortgage and housing markets, will return as the Presenting Sponsor of the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am. In 2018 the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am brought together sponsors from across the mortgage banking industry including Teraverde Financial, PrimeLending and Pulte Mortgage. The event raised $40,000 for its beneficiary, The MBA Opens Doors Foundation.

"We are proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am at the Ellie Mae Classic Tournament for the second year," said Clayton Collins, President and CEO, HousingWire. "We are dedicated to moving the housing and mortgage markets forward and through this sponsorship we are able to support the MBA Opens Doors mission in partnership with other mortgage industry leaders. We look forward to another great event in 2019."

The MBA Opens Doors Foundation, founded by the Mortgage Bankers Association in 2011, provides relief to families during a time of personal crisis. Through its Home Grant Program, the Foundation extends mortgage and rental payment assistance grants to parents and guardians caring for a critically ill or injured child, allowing them to be by a child's side during treatment without jeopardizing their cherished home.

The Ellie Mae Classic will have a booth located near the registration area on Level 2, L Street Bridge, at MBA Annual from October 15-17, 2018 in Washington, D.C. Participants can come to the booth to learn more about sponsorships and opportunities to participate in the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am.

"We are deeply grateful to partner once again with the Ellie Mae Classic and HousingWire," said Deborah Dubois, President, MBA Opens Doors Foundation. "Funds raised from the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am allow us to extend our reach across America, helping to keep more families in their homes while a child receives treatment for a critical illness."

Over the last three years, the Ellie Mae Classic has delivered some of the most memorable weeks of the Web.com Tour season. In 2016, Germany's Stephan Jaeger posted a PGA TOUR-record 58 in the opening round on his way to a record-setting 30-under-par 250 total and a seven-shot victory. In 2017 and 2018, National Basketball Association (NBA) Champion and Golden State Warriors All-Star Guard Stephen Curry competed in the tournament on an unrestricted sponsor exemption.

The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am is one of many charitable aspects of the tournament, as the Warriors Community Foundation serves as the event's main charitable beneficiary. Charity plays a key role in every PGA TOUR-sanctioned event, with other Ellie Mae charities also benefiting. The TOUR and its tournaments generated a record $180 million for charity in 2017, in turn elevating the all-time total donated to charity to $2.65 billion.
