What is the Veterans Online Bag Drive?
It is an online fundraiser that generates proceeds for your PGA section's foundation and supports its initiative of PGA HOPE.
It offers golfers the opportunity to earn a free, limited-edition personalized Sun Mountain Golf Bag (the veteran's name will be embroidered on the ball pocket along with the section logo).
The program typically lasts 18 days.
It’s simple and user-friendly because participants receive every element necessary to succeed including their custom-built fundraising page and series of communication about the section foundation.
Once the Veteran reaches the goal, he/she will earn his/her free, personalized golf bag!
Net proceeds will support the Connecticut PGA Section REACH foundation to support their Veterans programs.
