Kids Fore Kids
New, Exciting Fundraiser Kicking off for NEPGA Foundation
Our New England PGA Foundation is rolling out a huge Junior Fundraiser! Kids Play Fore Kids is a great initiative that combines fundraising, prizes, and a great event at the end of it all! To join the fundraiser, click the link below, and then on the big "fundraise for this campaign" button to create a team. You can then fundraise under your name for the New England PGA Foundation, and invite others to fundraise with you. There are prizes based on the threshold you can raise to, including some Apple Products, Fitbit, and more! To be counted for the prizes, you MUST create a team. You can be on your own team, or invite friends or family to join in with you. The best part is that all proceeds benefit the NEPGA Foundation, and will go to scholarships for Juniors. There will also be a fun tournament-style event at Tatnuck CC on August 14th to cap off the fundraising. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! Let the FUNdraising begin!
