A Fore Thought
By Stephanie Wei under General

Let’s take a moment for a public announcement via Dan from the PGA Tour’s community outreach program. Here’s some information about one initiative designed to raise funds for local non-profit organizations during The Barclays, the first leg of the (thrilling) FedEx Cup playoffs.

  • Through TICKETS Fore CHARITY, the PGA Tour is partnering with over 130 local charitable organizations
  • The charities sell tickets to The Barclays and keep 75% of every ticket purchased on their behalf when their promo code is entered
  • The remaining 25% goes to The First Tee of Metropolitan New York
  • The website where you can purchase tickets, get your charities promo code, or register your charity to participate in the program is www.buytfc.com.
  • We raised just under $100,000 through this program last year, the inaugural year, and plan on significantly increasing that amount in 2010

So, if you’re a nonprofit organization, register now and sell tickets to benefit your cause. There’s no cost to participate and no commitment to sell a minimum number. Sounds like a win-win.
