Folds of Honor Golf Car Raffle
Mid-State Golf Car & CNY PGA
Mid-State Golf Car and CNY PGA team up to raise an additional $15,000 for Folds of Honor in 2015
Folds of Honor provides annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty but do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. You may be surprised to learn that almost 90% of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance! Folds of Honor seeks to raise funds to bridge this gap by providing annual educational scholarships to these military families.
Central New York PGA members are encouraged to help raise money to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation by participating in the sale of raffle tickets. Ticket holders will have a chance to win a stars and stripes 2015 Club Car Precedent i2 FE350 golf car! Our goal is to sell 2,000 tickets at $10.00 each. All monies raised, over the cost of the car, will benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation. The drawing will be held September 8, 2015 at the Folds of Honor Pro-Am, Tuscarora Golf Club.
The Stars and Stripes 2015 Precedent i2 golf car will be on display and staffed for ticket sales at all five Turning Stone Pro-Am Series events: Corning CC May 4, Bellevue CC June 15, En-Joie GC July 6, Radisson Greens July 27, Binghamton CC August 31, and at the Folds of Honor on September 8 in Tuscarora, the day of the drawing.
The help of Central New York PGA members to sell tickets is greatly appreciated. Please respond to Stan Lisk, PGA with the number of tickets you hope to sell by Monday, March 9th. Mid-State Golf Car will have all tickets and promotional flyers available for distribution Wednesday, April 1, 2015.
Please note: The Stars and Stripes 2015 Club Car Precedent will also be available if you have a special event or tournament at your course and want to display the car to promote ticket sales. Please let Stan Lisk, PGA know the date and location of your event.
