Orchard Park, N.Y. (July 10, 2012) – The First Tee of Western New York invites local golfers to participate in its largest annual fundraiser, the “Kids First” Golf Tournament, on July 20 at Harvest Hill Golf Course.
Presented by Sgroi Financial, the event ensures The First Tee of Western New York has the resources necessary to grow and evolve. In its eight-year history, the tournament has raised more than $100,000 for youth programs.
Through the National Schools Program and partnerships with several local YMCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs and community groups, The First Tee of Western New York reached more than 1,200 youth in 2011 and aims to reach 5,000 by 2013.
Since launching a new endeavor, The First Tee’s national “Campaign For 10 Million Young People” to help more young people succeed on the course and in life, the tournament is more important than ever.
