An informational meeting will be held on October 27, for charities interested in participating in the Golf for Maui Charities program offered on behalf of the 2012 Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
As part of the tournament, non-profit agencies on Maui will be able to earn 100% of proceeds from tournament ticket sales.
The informational meeting takes place on Thursday, October 27, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at The Dunes at Maui Lani banquet room. Those planning to attend should RSVP by emailing Angela Lund at [email protected] or by calling 665-9160.
Tournament organizers say there is no limit on the amount of charity partners that can participate in this program.
There is also no minimum or maximum number of tickets to be sold and no financial investment required on the part of participating charities.
Since the PGA TOUR is a 501(c)6 organization, all net proceeds from the tournament go directly to local charities anyway. Tournament officials say Golf for Maui Charities is simply an opportunity for our tournaments to work with more charitable organizations, and have an even greater impact on the local non-profit community.
The only type of ticket available through Golf for Maui Charities this year is the $40 Weekly Grounds Ticket. This includes four individual tickets to the four competitive rounds from Friday, January 6 to Monday, January 9, 2012.
All children 18-years-old and under are admitted free of charge with a ticketed adult (one child per adult). All children over the age of 18-years-old must have a ticket to enter the tournament.
If charities want to purchase tickets to distribute or re-sell, they can do so by filling out a Participation Agreement and providing the group’s tax-exempt ID number.
