First Tee – Greater Akron is excited to announce its inaugural Golf-A-Thon on Friday, September 10 at Mud Run Golf Course & Driving Range.
What’s a Golf-A-Thon?
A Golf-A-Thon or Golf Marathon is a peer-to-peer fundraiser where people commit to playing 100 holes of golf on a single day. Funds are generated by golfers agreeing to raise money or pledges on behalf of First Tee – Greater Akron from their family and friends in support of their efforts.
First Tee – Greater Akron is looking for golfers to participate in this exciting and unique event. This fun day will include: 100 holes of golf, food, drinks, prizes and a very “generous” gimme circle on each hole. Each golfer’s goal is to play 100 holes and fundraise at least $1,000 from friends, family and colleagues. Don’t worry, we will setup an online fundraising page for you. All you have to do is share this page via social media, text and email.
What Do Golfers Get for Playing?
All golfers participating will receive: 100 holes of golf, golf cart, food and drinks on Friday, September 10.
Any golfer fundraising at least $1,200 will receive a Theragun Mini (a retail value of $200).
The golfer who fundraises the most will receive a golf trip for a foursome to Firestone Country Club. This includes 2 rounds of golf and a 1-night stay.
The golfer who fundraises the second most will receive a suite to a mutually agreed upon Cleveland Monsters hockey game for the 2021-2022 season.
100 Holes of Golf in One Day Not for You?
