Benton Harbor, Michigan, United States: The PGA of America has announced its Non-Profit Programmes for the 2018 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, as it deepens its commitment to giving back to local community partners in Southwest Michigan.
The Championship, which returns to Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Michigan, for the fourth time, has strong ties to the community and is committed to offering more support to a growing community of charitable organisations.
The Non-Profit Programmes will allow organisations to apply through February 8, 2018. Details of both programmes can be found below:
• Non-Profit Fund-raising: Organisations receive 50 per cent of total ticket sales that they have sold. The Championship will donate 50 per cent of the total ticket sales to all participating organisations in this programme.
• Non-Profit Ticket Programme: Organisations receive complimentary tickets to the 2018 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.
“The tickets for charity programme is an important initiative for the PGA of America,” said Ryan Ogle, Championship Director.
“One of the core values of the PGA REACH is to make a positive impact on the lives of young people, military veterans and diverse populations and to give back to the communities in which we operate Major Championships.
“We are grateful to be in a position to donate a larger percentage of ticket sales this year to local community organisations who are willing and able to support this Championship.”
