DENVER, CO – GOLFTEC, the world leader in golf improvement and club fitting, announces that the company has raised $111,000 to donate to PGA HOPE through their Drive For HOPE campaign. The Drive For HOPE charity campaign combined generous public donations and PGA HOPE apparel sales, along with GOLFTEC’s donation of $1 for every lesson given from October 11 through Veteran’s Day, November 11.
“We are proud to once again donate to PGA HOPE through our Drive For HOPE campaign, as our Veterans mean so much to this country,” said GOLFTEC CEO, Joe Assell. “Thank you to all of our Students, Coaches and supporters who donated, took lessons and bought PGA HOPE apparel. We are proud that so many helped contribute to this campaign in support of our military and Veterans.”
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
GOLFTEC gave over 100,000 lessons nationwide during the Drive For HOPE, as many GOLFTEC Students made it their mission to take lessons and give back during the month-long campaign. Drive For HOPE is part of GOLFTEC Cares, a charitable initiative with a mission to unite communities through golf and drive the game towards greater accessibility, diversity, and long-lasting charitable impact. With an annual charitable giving of over $2 million, GOLFTEC is aiming for an even greater impact through 2022 and beyond.
