This month, 78 golf professionals will compete for a $2-million purse during the Ally Challenge presented by McLaren at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club.
During the tournament, the Genesee Area Focus Fund (GAFF), the nonprofit arm of the Flint & Genesee Chamber, will also have a chance to benefit from the players’ performance.
GAFF supports afterschool and pre-employment programs including:
How can these programs benefit from the tournament? Through the Birdies for Charity campaign, individuals can make a pledge based on the number of birdies (a score of one stroke under par) are made during the entire tournament or make a one-time flat donation. All donations raised will receive a 6 percent match from Ally Financial.
Interested in showing your support? Make a pledge or donation to the Genesee Area Focus Fund:
One-time donations where donors pledge to pay a flat amount regardless of the number of birdies made will be billed immediately. Per birdie pledges will be billed after the tournament, to be held Sept. 13-16 at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc.
