THE STORY:

Dear Friends  -

For the last year and a half, I've been volunteering with The First Tee of Greater Washington, DC. It's a fantastic organization whose goal is to help teach life skills to children and young adults through the game of golf. The First Tee offers golf and life skills lessons at approximately a dozen golf courses in DC and Northern Virginia.

On Monday 6/27, I'll be participating in our annual Golf-A-Thon. I'll play as many holes of golf as I can to help raise money for college scholarships for First Tee participants. Think of it like a charity race -- but with golf clubs!

I'm hoping to raise $500 this year and to play 54 holes of golf over the course of the day. I'd be honored if you'd help out the cause with a small donation.

Thanks for your time!

Matt Trogdon

THE GOLF-A-THON IS ORGANIZED BY THE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COUNCIL AND ALL FUNDS RAISED BENEFIT THE FIRST TEE OF GREATER WASHINGTON, D.C.

WHAT IS A GOLF-A-THON?

Golfers independently pledge to play a certain number of holes in one day. Every golfer’s goal is to generate money for The First Tee of Greater Washington, D.C. by obtaining sponsors who will pledge money for every hole played.

Speed golf is the order of the day. Scores in a marathon are not important. However, every marathon golfer must play his or her ball into the cup on every hole. Some players will keep scores for every round and others will not.

The rules of golf and golf etiquette should be observed.
Junior golfers in The First Tee program who are “course ready” will participate in the Golf-A-Thon.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Participants in the golf marathon will not be charged an entry fee, provided that they raise at least $500 in pledges for participation.
