$1 From Every Lesson Given In November Was Donated to PGA HOPE
By Ryan Gager
A huge thank you to all of our Students who made the effort to come in and take lessons during the month of November for our DRIVE FOR HOPE campaign! Because of you, GOLFTEC was able to raise $100,000 to donate to PGA HOPE! The total donated amount was a combination of $1 from every lesson given during November, along with public donations.
This donation was part of GOLFTEC’s overall charitable giving in 2021 that topped $2 million. And our charitable contributions were a big part of GOLFTEC having the best year on record. Please see the video at the top of this post for more highlights of GOLFTEC’s 2021.
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
GOLFTEC gave over 80,000 lessons nationwide during November, a number that definitely was influenced by the DRIVE FOR HOPE military campaign. DRIVE FOR HOPE is part of GOLFTEC Cares, a charitable initiative with a mission to unite communities through golf and drive the game towards greater accessibility, diversity, and long-lasting charitable impact. With over $2 million in charitable giving in 2021, GOLFTEC is aiming for an even greater impact through 2022 and beyond.
