Contest Awards $10,000 Donation to a Golf Fundraiser Plus Exclusive Golf Membership & Prizes to Nominator
LINCOLN, Neb., May 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GolfStatus, the leading technology platform for nonprofit and charity golf fundraisers, is teaming up with its giving partners at Dormie Network and Dormie Network Foundation for the Play It Forward campaign to give back to organizations that are using golf to drive impact.
Now in its third year, the campaign is a unique opportunity to "play" it forward. Individuals nominate a charity or nonprofit using golf to raise money to receive a $10,000 donation to its golf fundraiser, and get the chance to win a one-year honorary membership to Dormie Network, a national network of private golf clubs, plus a $10,000 credit toward onsite golf and lodging.
"Golf has deep ties to philanthropy and helps power nonprofits and charities addressing important causes in communities everywhere," said Brian Schenk, Chief Philanthropy Officer at Dormie Network Foundation. "Play It Forward celebrates these organizations using golf as a force for good."
Play It Forward began in 2021, awarding $10,000 to the Cameron Steinberg Foundation and its inaugural golf fundraiser. The annual golf event has raised $100,000 for research into congenital heart disease and to help families affected by these defects.
In 2022, two nonprofits were selected for $10,000 donations, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia, Delaware, and Susquehanna Valley and Sisters Across America. Make-A-Wish's Pro-Am for Wishes raises money to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Sisters Across America provides support and mentoring for young minority women pursuing professional golfing careers and teaching juniors to grow the game, raising money through two annual golf fundraisers.
The giveaway launches May 29 and nominations will be accepted through July 4. Winners will be announced via press release and on GolfStatus' and Dormie Network's social media channels in August.
