Doral’s Tickets Fore Charity Program a Boon for Charities and The First Tee

Tickets Fore Charity

In South Florida, Sarah Talalay reports that The World Golf Championships-CA Championship officially kicked off its Tickets Fore Charity program today.

The golf tournament, scheduled for March 9-15, “is offering charities a chance to sell reduced price weekly and daily grounds passes and weekly clubhouse passes as a way to benefit their charities.” The proceeds from the sales “will be split with 75% going to the charity and 25% to The First Tee, the World Golf Foundation’s charity aimed at providing golf facilities and education for young people.”

The program “helps in two ways: discounted tickets and dollars for charity, both of which are welcome during the recession.”

WGC CA Championship Executive Director Eddie Carbone: “In these tough economic times, the CA Championship is more committed than ever to assisting local organizations with their fundraising efforts. We’d like to invite charities throughout South Florida to join us in enhancing and enriching our local communities by participating in Tickets Fore Charity” (Sarah Talalay, Ft.
