100 HOLE Golf Challenge for Vets

My golf instructor Jeff DeBenedeti (PGA Pro and Director of Golf at Las Positas Golf Course in Livermore CA) is doing something awesome for our veterans!

…he is going to play 100 holes of golf in one day with the goal to raise at least $5,000 dollars for veterans who can benefit from playing golf. One hundred holes…that's 5 1/2 rounds of golf in one day! Yahoo. 

Here is Jeff's letter:

To Our Las Positas Golf Family,

I am going to play 100 holes of golf in one day on August 30th to raise money for PGA HOPE. Yes, I have committed to participate in this year’s NCPGA Charity Golf Challenge. The NCPGA Charity Golf Challenge was established by local PGA professionals to raise money for local community programs and charities through the Northern California PGA Foundation.

PGA HOPE is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to all Veterans, disabled or able-bodied, in order to enhance their mental, social, physical and emotional well-being. This is offered free of charge to Veterans.

The Northern California PGA Foundation is working closely with the VA system across Northern California to assist veterans in their transition. Sessions are taught by local PGA Professionals with assistance from trained volunteers and include clubs and equipment if needed, training aids, range balls and weekly golf course access.

In a sport where relationships are everything, PGA HOPE helps veterans assimilate back into their community through the social interaction the game of golf provides. This program offers a moral boost and enables our patriots to once again be active in their community and participate in the game of a lifetime!

Please help me in this endeavor by sponsoring me for $1, $2, $5 or more per hole. This pledge is 100% tax deductible through the NCPGA Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization.

I really need and appreciate your support.  Thank you in advance for making a difference.
