PGA Golf Club to Host Red, White and You Charity Tournament
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (Sept. 26, 2019) – PGA Golf Club – the PGA of America’s award-winning 54-hole facility – will be the site of the fifth annual “Red, White & YOU” charity golf tournament on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Open to all golfers, the entertaining fundraiser begins at 8:15 a.m. with kick-off ceremonies, followed by a scramble competition (with divisions) at 9 a.m. A post-event celebration starts at 2 p.m. Entry for PGA Golf Club members, PGA Professionals and active or retired military is $85. Cost for guests of members and the general public is $110. Breakfast, lunch, golf prizes and tax are included.
All proceeds benefit PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), the flagship military program of the PGA of America’s charitable foundation PGA REACH. The year-round program introduces golf to veterans, while enhancing their mental, social, physical and emotional well-being. PGA HOPE also helps veterans assimilate back into their community through the social interaction of golf.

“Since the inception of this program at PGA Golf Club, we have executed over 50 golf programs impacting nearly 100 veterans,” adds Wiernasz. “Events like Red, White & YOU significantly help PGA HOPE and its unique programs, and we are truly honored to host this inspiring charity event.”
