Help us support our troops!

This may sound crazy, and you may think we’re nuts, but WE NEED YOU to play 100 holes of golf with us on May 16 at the TPC Champions Course.

We all share a significant interest…namely the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces. With nominal participation from 100 volunteers, we can raise $250,000 or more in the next few weeks to honor and support these brave men and women of our military. This one day event is a terrific way to raise some significant dollars for a remarkable group of people who ask nothing of us, but give 100% of themselves… for us.

We need 100 passionate champions wanting to help support the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces. We have made a commitment, and now WE NEED YOU! Right now we are putting together our Champions Team and we want you on it! WE NEED YOU to participate in a KEY volunteer position. Each volunteer has very limited, yet well defined, responsibility. We promise you, this will not take a lot of your time! We need volunteers who will commit to following the instructions of this proven program, raising significant dollars for our troops.

You can be “A Champion”
Here is what we are asking each “Champion” to commit to accomplish:

Show up on Monday, May 16 from 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM [breakfast and lunch included] at TPC Champions Course in Scottsdale to play your 100 holes of golf! (Not as hard as it may seem, as we throw away the rule book and have some unique fun on the course.)

Sponsor yourself for at least $1/hole.
Raise a minimum of $24 more per hole from your spheres of influence. This is easy, as people will want to support you in your commitment to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces.

You can be “A Champion Team Captain”
We need 25 Team Captains to accomplish the above 1 – 2 – 3 and put together a team of 4 (including yourself) Champions.

We have created a website for this campaign and it is the key to our success, where you enter your sponsor’s pledge information (you do not have to collect any monies, just get pledges from those you know: your friends, family, associates) and the site will send them a big thank you, tax deductible letter, and where they can send their sponsorship of you. People give to people and all you have to do is ASK for help in this all-out endeavor in support of our brave men and women.

Let us know that you want to be a “Champion” or a “Champion Team Captain” and we’ll handle the rest. Just call 602-944-3035 and we’ll get all the details to you.

Proceeds from your fundraising will benefit: Champions 100 / Arizona Golf Foundation is acting as the umbrella for the groups listed below, and is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation (Tax ID 86-0761350) for your records. Fifty percent will go to Birdies for the Brave, 20 percent to both the Wounded Warrior Project and the Navy Seal Foundation and 10 percent to Folds of Honor.

Here is a brief description of the military home-front groups that will benefit from your commitment:
