Shriners Hospitals for Children, PGA TOUR players launch FORE Love campaign

November 2, 2017

LAS VEGAS– Shriners Hospitals for Children® and a group of PGA TOUR professionals have launched a Fundraise FORE Love Campaign to provide a way for professionals participating in the field this week to support the mission of the organization.    The professional golfers will also be raising awareness of the work the hospitals do via their social media platforms as they serve as brand ambassadors.  After years of being exposed to and inspired by the patients attending the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open held annually in Las Vegas the players sought ways that they could build awareness and give back. 

The launch of the Fundraise FORE Love Campaign highlights the efforts by the organization to grow the Classy online fundraising program launched earlier this year in an effort to create simple, engaging ways for supporters to raise funds for the hospital network.

“What I find really exciting about the group of players who have chosen to participate in the program is how diverse their connections to the event and the cause are.  Young players who are just getting their careers started have already decided that supporting worthy charitable causes is important to them, while veterans who have been exposed to so many causes throughout their years on the PGA TOUR have decided that the Shriner mission is worthy of their support.  We also have past champions looking to give back to an organization that was a part of one of their career highlights, as well as some who have personally been touched by not only the medical care provided, but also the fraternal side of the organization.  We are truly grateful for all of their support,” said Adam Sperling, executive director of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. 

The public is invited to visit https://donate.lovetotherescue.org/pga-tour where they can choose to support the program, or select their favorite player’s page to help them reach their individual fundraising goal.  Each player has also selected a hospital location to receive credit for the funds they have raised.  The 19 players participating in the program are:

#FundraiseFORELove donations for individual PGA TOUR professionals can be made online now at https://donate.lovetotherescue.org/pga-tour through Dec. 31, 2017.
