Please join us this holiday season for the Illinois PGA Foundation's 2nd Annual Winter Golf Teach-a-thon presented by Tour Edge Golf Mfg, Inc. Let one of our participating PGA Instructors help you work on improving your golf game and together work on making a difference in our community. Starting this December Illinois PGA Professionals registered through golfgives.org will contribute 20 - 100% of their lesson fees to one of the charities participating in the 2011-2012 campaign. Professionals may choose to restrict their lesson fees to one specific charity or elect an open-ended option so that students can choose their favorite charity. Interested in taking a golf lesson? Sign up is easy:
Search the database for participating PGA Professionals by name, facility, charity, etc.
Use the golfgives.org virtual lesson book to view available dates, times, and locations.
Schedule your lesson by providing secure credit card payment through golfgives.org.
Net proceeds derived through the 2nd Annual Winter Golf Teach-a-thon will benefit the Illinois PGA Foundation and its partner charities. At the end of the campaign the Illinois PGA Foundation will award grant amounts to partnering charities less credit cad processing costs. Twenty percent of all charitable contributions will benefit the Illinois PGA Foundation's community programs. Last year participating golf professionals were able to raise over $8,000 for community programs while also triggering a $10,000 match for the Foundation generously provided by D.P. Kelly & Associates and Resource1.
We are ready to build on last year's success with the help of Tour Edge Golf Mfg and Humana Illinois. Tour Edge Golf has pledged $10,000 to the Illiniois PGA Foundation in support of the campaign and participating golf professionals. With their support we are able to offer a variety of fun rewards, experiences and incentives to the charities, golf professionals and supporters throughout the campaign. Each month the top fundraising professional will be honored with a $500 bonus to the charity of his/her choice. (A minimum of $500 must be raised that month to be eligible.)
Humana Illinois has once again offered to host the top five fundraising golf professionals and a guest in their United Center suite for a Chicago Blackhawks or Chicago Bulls game. Game and date TBA. Check back each month for announcements on added rewards.More event details
