Playing fore their Future: Top 20 fundraisers


The AJGA is proud to recognize the top fundraisers for “Playing fore their Future.” A Leadership Links program that began this year, “Playing fore their Future” raises money for the AJGA’s ACE Grant program and CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a program supported by the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation that raises funds for research and development of childhood cancer.

In its inaugural year, 119 juniors raised a total of $125,000. The top eight fundraisers are invited to a VIP reception with Jack Nicklaus, in conjunction with next month’s Polo Golf Junior Classic. The AJGA congratulates the top 20 fundraisers, who showcased a dedication and determination to helping others.
