On behalf of the Foundation Board of Trustees, we wanted to provide you with an opportunity to join our Section wide fundraiser initiative in the 98-Day 100 Hole Marathon.
PGA REACH WNY was established in 2010 with a goal of Impacting Lives Through the Game of Golf and is our way to help tell your story as a PGA Professional. As the Foundation continues to grow, so too will the Section.
By raising funds through the 98-Day 100-hole Marathon, PGA REACH WNY Foundation has a vision to establish:
- An indoor/outdoor learning center that would allow for year-long programming for veterans, juniors and diverse individuals alike that may otherwise not have access to golf. This also will allow access for PGA Members to practice and teach in the offseason.
- A workforce program for our veterans to be able to earn some money while learning the trade of the golf industry. This is the next step in helping PGA Members to find help during the summer months (at no cost to your facility).
- A junior golf scholarship program for less fortunate individuals to be able to attend college.
- A stable PGA Works Program with a new Works Fellow being hired on an annual basis.
In Western New York, the majority of our golf season is played between Memorial Day and Labor Day (i.e. 98 days).
