Wichita's long-running Tour event will have a new name in 2013: the Air Capital Classic; and with it a new identity.

A new 501(c)(3) has been formed to lead and operate the tournament, in concert with the PGA TOUR. Air Capital Charities, Inc. will be the new organization that will operate the "official event of the PGA TOUR" in Wichita and continue to generate funds for local charities. In 2012, $200,000 was donated to local charities.
