PAGCS To Run Silent Auction at September Golf Outing

In conjunction with the PAGCS September golf outing at Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club, the Association will conduct a silent auction that will benefit the Wee One Foundation. Click here for full information: Wee One Silent Auction Letter

silent_auction_set_upWe anticipate the September meeting to draw participants from inside and outside the golf turf industry, so we are seeking donations to make the silent auction appealing to a broad audience. Please consider donating or helping us solicit donation items such as sporting event tickets and memorabilia, electronics, gift cards/baskets, products, services, and rounds of golf. The theme for the day is Philadelphia, so anything representing Philly and vicinity would be a great addition.

PAGCS September Golf Outing: So, What is “Wee One”?

The PAGCS September meeting will be held on Monday, September 19, at Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club. In unique fashion, this event will incorporate some fun Philly themes [cheesesteaks wit, anyone?] while benefiting one of the golf turf industry’s leading foundations: Wee One.

So, what is Wee One? Turns out, “Wee One” was a who: Wayne Otto, CGCS. Wayne was a cherished friend of many in the golf course superintendent industry who died from cancer in 2004. The Foundation was named to honor Wayne and to continue to help those in need who face economic hardship due to illness. Click here to read more about Wee One history.

PAGCS Partners with Wee One for Inaugural Benefit Golf Outing

On September 19, 2016, the Wee One Foundation, in cooperation with the PAGCS, will hold an Inaugural Philadelphia Wee One golf outing at Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club. We are excited to introduce the Philadelphia golf turf management industry to the Wee One Foundation and its important mission.

As you may know, the Wee One Foundation was established and exists solely to benefit families of national golf course industry professionals who have suffered catastrophic illness and need financial assistance. It is because of your generosity that the foundation has distributed over $1,000,000 to families in need. Chances are, there is a family in your community in need of assistance and we would like to help. Unique and exciting sponsorship options are available for this event: click here.
