The First Tee is a nationally-recognized nonprofit organization that “impacts the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.”
The Red Hoffman Cup Matches First Tee Initiative is likely to exceed its previous years of support to the four First Tee chapters in New Jersey. To give back to the game we love, Hoffman Cup captains and their teammates have been invited to volunteer time and / or make a donation to The First Tee's impactful programs.
In 2017, we provided support to these four New Jersey First Tee chapters:
We have clearly struck a responsive chord among our Hoffman Cup participants, with over $100,000 donated to all of these chapters to date!
We will build on the success of these fine first few years to keep our First Tee Initiative relevant and valuable to our member clubs. Literally all of us who participate in the Hoffman Cup are familiar with TFT and its programs. It is important to realize that all of us benefit from the TFT. Not only does the program build our children into better citizens, it creates a pipeline and support to the game we love.
How to Contribute
Each Hoffman Cup captain is encouraged to ask his team to contribute both volunteer time and financial support. Last year, most Hoffman Cup contributions were made by checks that were consolidated by the captains and sent to the chapter. Another good option is to donate online. To donate to these wonderful organizations, please use the information provided below, or contact Kevin Casey, 973-886-5705.
As you and your team make your donation, please indicate that your contribution is part of the Hoffman Cup First Tee Initiative.
Your support is truly valuable to these organizations. Together, the HCM and our friends at our local TFT chapters will make a big difference in the youth of our region.
