Golf for Maui Charities entering its sixth year at the Tournament of Champions

By Staff | Oct 13, 2016

Paia Youth and Cultural Center has used funds raised through Golf for Maui Charities to upgrade golf clubs and bags, purchase training aids and take members to play at local golf courses.

KAPALUA – The Tournament of Champions last week announced its sixth year of Golf for Maui Charities, a program designed to generate revenue for local Maui charities through tickets sold by nonprofit organizations.

In just a few months, PGA Tour winners from 2016 will come to Maui for the winners-only event, which returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua from Jan. 4-8.

The Golf for Maui Charities program generates revenue for local charities. Organizations are invited to sign up and participate, with no sign-up fees and absolutely no cost or risk to the nonprofit organization. The organization then sells the tournament tickets, and 100 percent of the net proceeds go directly back to the organization.

Many worthwhile organizations have benefited from the Golf for Maui Charities program since its inception six years ago. One such organization is the Paia Youth and Cultural Center, which has participated in the program for three years.

“This is something we look forward to every year and can’t wait to start selling those tickets,” said Brandon LaRue, drop-in program specialist at the Paia Youth and Cultural Center.

This year’s Tournament of Champions Golf for Maui Charities ticket options are: Good Any Day Grounds Ticket for $30 (valid Wednesday-Sunday), and Weekly Grounds Ticket for $70 (provides access Wednesday-Sunday).

If your organization is interested in this program, e-mail adriana.fisher@ gmail.com or call 665-9160.

The 2017 Tournament of Champions returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua on Jan. 4-8. All four competitive rounds will be broadcast on the Golf Channel.
