TPC Tampa Bay Supports The First Tee Campaign for 10 Million Young People
Heritage Golf Group, Inc. and the Heritage Golf Group Collection of Clubs joins forces with PGA TOUR’s TPC Network to host a series of fundraising events benefiting The First Tee – a non-profit youth development organization that promotes character-building among young people through the game of golf.
The “Tee It Up for The First Tee” fundraising initiative is part of The First Tee Campaign for 10 Million Young People, a comprehensive effort to raise $100 million which will enable the organization’s character education and life skills programs to positively influence 10 million more young people between now and 2017. Heritage Golf Group is proud to be a part of the 115 participating golf courses across the country.
In April 2012, Heritage Golf Group’s private clubs will open their doors to non-members on one or more designated days, with green fee proceeds donated to the Campaign. For a list of participating golf clubs, information on fundraising activities, to book a tee time or to make online donations to The First Tee, please visit www.thefirsttee.org.
The First Tee Campaign for 10 Million Young People will culminate October 7-8, 2012, with a golf event at Pebble Beach that will include lead donors to the Campaign playing alongside PGA TOUR, LPGA and Champions Tour players.
