Hyundai Golf: Charities Benefit From New Ticket Structure
By Wendy Osher
The Hyundai Tournament of Champions revises its ticketing policy for 2012, and will be charging for adult entry this year, with charity in mind.
The event launches a new program in the coming weeks called Golf for Maui Charities. Under the program, 501-c3 non-profit organizations can promote the sale of tickets, with 100% of net proceeds going back to their charity.
“The new ticket structure for 2012 allows the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to have significant impact on the local economy and our charitable partners,” said Tournament Director Nancy Cross.
“We are excited about the upcoming launch of our Golf for Maui Charities program. We hope charities will get involved with this fantastic opportunity in a time when fundraising has become more difficult than ever,” said Cross.
All 501-c3 organizations interested in being a part of Golf for Maui Charities, should contact the Hyundai Tournament of Champions tournament office at (808) 665-9160 or toll-free at (888) 665-9160 for more information.
In 2011, event organizers offered free admission in addition to a host of other complimentary activities.
When the event returns in January of 2012, the free entry will be reserved for those 18 and under who are accompanied by a ticket-paying adult, as well as military (active duty, retired and reserve) personnel and their dependents.
There will be an opportunity for all spectators to gain free entry on one day only, Thursday, January 5, 2012 for the Pro-Am Round.
The four rounds of professional competition run from Friday, January 6, through Monday, January 9 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort, marking the official start of the PGA TOUR’s 2012 FedExCup season.
In advance of this new program, general admission tickets for competition rounds on Jan. 6-9 are on sale now at www.pgatour.com/Hyundai. Advance prices for single any-day tickets are $15 plus applicable fees with weeklong grounds tickets selling for $40 plus applicable fees.
***For Military: Military tickets can be downloaded free of charge by visiting www.birdiesforthebrave.com and clicking on the Ticketing link. All military and their dependents will need to show their valid military ID along with their downloaded ticket in order to gain complimentary admission.
