Marilynn Smith & Founders’ Legacy Foundation (MSFLF) Fundraising Initiatives

About the MSFLF
The Marilynn Smith & Founders’ Legacy Foundation forwards the spirit and legacy of all the LPGA Founders and Pioneers, including the Marilynn Smith Scholarship Fund, which, since 1999, has awarded over $1 million to 199 young women to pursue their academic dreams and further their golf careers.

To create awareness and to raise money, they have two initiatives planned to help fill the absence of Founders Cup which would’ve been next week in Arizona. Please help by supporting these and/or sharing the information for others to participate.

1) An ONLINE AUCTION in conjunction with next week’s Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic.
This is an LPGA Symetra Tour event that will be held March 17th thru March 21st at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, AZ.

The Auction opens on Sunday, March 14th and closes on Tuesday, the 23rd. The Pro-Am takes place Wednesday, March 17th, this item will close on Monday the 15th at the end of the day. There are collectible items and rounds of golf. Also, there’s a raffle embedded in the auction for a custom Marilynn Smith Tour bag signed by all of the LPGA players at the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship.

Tickets are $13 apiece or 13 for $100. (Focusing on 13 for the 13 Founders!)

2) A VIRTUAL SUNDAY TEA 1-3 PM on Sunday, March 21st, the final day of the Symetra Tournament tourney. Ron Sirak, well-known golf writer and Golf Channel broadcast contributor, will interview several golf celebrities including LPGA Founder Shirley Spork, LPGA Pioneer Renee Powell, LPGA Superstar Nancy Lopez, Marilynn Smith Scholarship Recipient Michele Bateman and others. This Virtual Tea follows in the tradition of holding a Tea to kick-off Marilynn’s annual LPGA Charity Pro-AM, which many PGWA ladies have attended over the years.

There is a nominal $13 donation to register – 13 in honor of the 13 LPGA Founders. Because it’s a virtual event, you will receive a link to access the program a few days prior to the event.
