AGA'S Champion 100

On Monday, May 16, 2011, the Arizona Golf Association, in conjunction with the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale, will put on Champion 100, a golf marathon geared to benefit the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. THEY NEED YOU to play 100 holes of golf with them on the TPC’s Champions Course. Arizona Golf Association

Nearly all Americans share a significant, common interest…namely their respect for the brave men and women of our military. With nominal participation from 100 volunteers, the AGA could raise $250,000 or more, in the next few weeks to honor and support these patriots. This important, one-day event is a wonderful way to raise much-needed dollars for a remarkable group of people who give 100% of themselves without asking for anything in return.

There are two ways to help in the next two weeks:

1) have your group sponsor you or a veteran to play 100 holes on May 16th

2) simply help the cause with your donation/credit card
