A MASTERFUL CONNECTION:
"CLUB CAR FOR A CAUSE" TEES UP ANNUAL CONTEST TO BENEFIT THE FIRST TEE IN AUGUSTA

 

Augusta, Ga., Apr. 8, 2019 – Club Car®, the global leader in golf, utility and consumer vehicles, invites golf fans from around the world and those visiting Augusta for tournament week to snap, snap, snap away as part of their annual ”Club Car For A Cause Selfie contest.”

To celebrate one of the most prestigious golf events in the world, Club Car has placed more than 90 golf and consumer branded vehicles, produced at its nearby Evans, Georgia plant, at local Augusta area businesses. Residents and visitors are invited to take a seat and snap selfie photos with any of the vehicles, and then submit their photos to https://kicks99.com/contests/club-car-selfie-contest/ . 

For participants’ efforts, Club Car will make a donation to the LPGA*USGA Girls golf program at the Augusta Chapter of The First Tee demonstrating its commitment to giving back to the community; diversity, inclusion and parity among women; and to growing the game of golf. The First Tee is an organization dedicated to providing youth with educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the sport.   

In addition to helping to support The First Tee, those who take the time to participate in the Club Car For A Cause Selfie contest are eligible to win one of four prizes, including a golf getaway at Reynolds Lake Oconee, a Club Car Onward personal transportation vehicle, a $500 Visa gift card, and two tickets to Guitar Pull.

“The Masters continues to excite golf fans, our community and the many employees at Club Car who are committed to giving back to organizations that are working hard to make this world a better place,” said Mark Wagner, president of Club Car. “This is a fun week and an opportunity for us to showcase the good works of our employees and to reaffirm our commitment to the community, specifically The First Tee and its program designed to empower girls.”

Throughout the year, and over the decades, Club Car employees have and continue to actively support, fundraise and organize employee volunteer activities for a variety of area non-profit organizations. They’ve raised monies for the United Way, Augusta-based Miracle Mile Walk, Make-A-Wish, Camp Rainbow/Children’s Hospital of Georgia, Relay for Life, and many more.
