A.R. "Pete" Giesen Jr. MHA-A Memorial Golf Tournament

Monday, June 6, 2022


Join us for a day of celebration, golf, and honoring what A.R. “Pete” Giesen Jr. spent so many years working toward, Better Mental Health for All. In what would have been the 25th annual Pete Giesen Jr. MHA-A Golf Tournament, we will gather on Monday, June 6th for the 1st A.R. “Pete” Giesen Jr. MHA-A Memorial Golf Tournament.  

In 1963, Pete would win a seat in the Virginia House and launch his political career.   Pete became and remained a dignified, graceful, and honest force of Virginia state politics for over three decades: a force for mental health, a force for racial equality, and a force for all citizens of his beloved Virginia.

Pete was a dear friend of Mental Health America of Augusta and was a staunch advocate for mental health all across the commonwealth.

After retiring from politics, well, he never really retired from politics, Pete continued on various boards and made attempts at trying to be a golfer. Even starting the "Pete Giesen Mental Health Golf Tournament" which provided scholarships for students majoring in mental health occupations at Blue Ridge Community College. 

Mental Health America of Augusta is honored to continue on the tradition that Pete started so you can be sure there will be a lot of laughs, GAG Gifts, prizes, and more.
