MONDAY, JUNE 18, TWIN PINES GOLF COURSE
What is a Golfathon?The GTAA National Golf a Thon is one event from sun up to sun down where Non Profit Organizations recruit golfers to raise pledges and play as many holes of golf in one day as they can. 100 holes is the goal for each golfer.
The Non Profit has no risk, all they have to do is get golfers to raise the pledges and play golf, the GTAA does the rest.
Where to play?
The GTAA is lining up at least 50 golf courses in major markets across the country where your golfers can play.
Gifts & Prizes
Each lead golfer will receive gifts and prizes as they reach their certain goals in pledges per hole.
Each of your golfers will have a goal of raising $25 in pledges per hole and playing 100 holes of golf in one day, raising $2500 each. Must have a minimum of $1500 to participate in event.
How many golfers?
It is all up to you. You can have 1 to 36 golfers playing in one local market of 2500 golfers playing across the country.
Example of your potential; If you have 25 golfers that raise $25 per hole and play 100 holes of golf, your group would raise $62,000 total.
How is the money distributed?
Your group will receive 70% with no risk. The money is distributed this way:
Thank you so much for signing up for the first ever National Golfathon. You are a part of making history. You will not only undertake the challenge of playing 100 holes of golf in one day, you will also have a great time while raising money for your favorite charity.
Your mission is to raise pledges per hole. Your goal is $25 per hole. That could be 25 people giving you $1 per hole or some combination. You can ask for any amount, from 25 cents to $5 per hole. Then play 100 holes of golf in one day. You can do this. We will have the whole golf course to our self, only 40 golfers on the course. You will easily finish 18 holes in 2 1/2 hours.
Collecting Pledges – We suggest that you approach everyone that you know, friends, family, colleges, neighbors and let them know that you will sacrifice your body and play 100 holes of golf in one day for your favorite charity. You will ask them to pledge a small amount per hole for your efforts.
Once they have committed to a pledge, you will enter their name, email and credit card number in the website. Once you have completed playing golf that day, you will enter the number of holes played. The amount that they have pledged will be deducted from their credit card. A receipt will be emailed to them and the amount will be fully tax deductible.
Golfing – Be ready for a long day. You will arrive at the golf course around 6:00am and tee off at 6:30am. You will get your own golf cart (with your name on it) and you will play non-stop until you have finished at least 100 holes, usually 6:00pm. Everyone gets their own cart. If you would like to bring a caddy to drive the cart, that would be great (friend, spouse or family member). It will help the time go by faster. If 100 holes by yourself is too much….call Lisa Miller, PGA Master Professional at 286-5544 for another option.
Incentives – We want you to do your best and raise as much money as you can for your charity. So we are offering you incentives every step of the way….these are for golfers who are ‘on-line” raising pledges (tag team members will not be eligible for prizes).
