On Sunday, July 22, 2018, The First Tee of Lake County will hold a golf hit-a-thon. Our goals are to have 150 hitters and to raise $30,000. The funds generated will directly benefit participant of The First Tee of Lake County’s programs throughout Lake County, IN.
Every dollar raised will help ensure our registration fees remain affordable, that we can continue to hire qualified coaches, and that programs such as our LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Initiative, our Junior Advisory Council, and our National School Program are offered to more children each year.
Online Fundraising Platform
To make collecting pledges easier than ever we have enlisted the services of 99pledges. Each player will have their own personal pledge page. You will receive an email invite to your page or you may visit https://99pledges.com/fund/2017golfhi and search for your player. By using 99pledges you can reach friends and family across the world via email and social media. The site also allows your sponsors to pledge via credit card using a secure site! Feel free to collect checks/cash using the log sheet provided. Checks may also be mailed to 901-129th Street, Lake County, IN 46324
What to do Next
To make your fundraising campaign as successful as possible take these steps:
● Send emails to 10 of your closest friends and family right away!
● Make your donation immediately. This will encourage others to donate as well.
● Post to Facebook and Twitter (adding a picture or video message will really help)
How it Works
Each participant is encouraged to solicit donations from family and friends. For every $1 (one dollar) raised the participant will hit one ball. (Please note that some participants may require assistance in hitting all of their pledged balls.)
We have some great prizes lined up! There are several ways to earn prizes including:
● The player who raises the most money!
● The top fundraisers in each division!
