Organization History and Mission

For over four decades, Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center has been a vital community, national and international cultural resource in southern New Jersey. Within its beautiful setting, WheatonArts remains the region’s primary tourist destination and serves as a dynamic center for the arts with ever-expanding programs that capture the imagination of all ages.

WheatonArts Golf Classic Attendance and Participation

The WheatonArts Golf Classic brings 150 golfers together to support the multicultural, multigenerational programs and educational resources offered at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center located in Millville, NJ.  

WheatonArts believes the arts must be an integral part of the education of all citizens, with special emphasis on school age children as a part of their basic education.  The Golf Classic provides direct support for the programs that provide this doorway to the arts for students throughout the region.  WheatonArts Golf Classic sponsors and participants make it possible for children to access creativity regardless of household awareness or income.
