The PTC and our Rounds for Turfgrass Committee asks for your support in our upcoming auction of golf rounds held on February 8th – 10th at the Golf Expo in Oaks PA. Last year, we raised over $13,500 by auctioning off 4-somes of golf donated by local private and public golf courses. The 2019 Philadelphia Golf Show will be our 3rd consecutive year representing Penn State Turf and fundraising for the Turf Project. We hope that you and your club or golf facility will continue to support our efforts.
I am writing to ask for your support by not only donating a 4-some of golf at your club, but to also assist in spreading the word of our campaign to other superintendent’s and golf courses in your region. I have chosen to reach out to you because I know you are either a Penn State Alum, PTC supporter and/or an advocate of the turf industry. Please contact or forward my email and attached letter onto as many superintendent’s in your region as possible. Our goal is to raise $15K this year. I know we can do it with your support and just a few calls or emails to a nearby superintendent. Courses who are able to make a 4-some donation can email a certificate in PDF format to my email address. Those courses that have a specific hard copy certificate and wish to mail it, please mail to my club:
Attention – Andrew Dooley
1637 Bernville Road
Reading PA 19601
Any specific details or restrictions must be listed on the certificate (i.e. can only be redeemed on weekdays after 12pm). If they would be willing to list the going rate for the 4-some that would be best. I will then print the PDF and display them at the Expo. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email at your convenience.
Thank you in advance for your support of PTC and Penn State research!
Andrew, PTC Past President
