Rockspring Capital recently joined forces with the Southern Texas Professional Golfers’ Association (STPGA) to support the organization’s Charity Golf Summer program.
The program is a series of 100-hole golf marathons played by STPGA Professionals, each of whom solicited per hole pledges from club members, friends and others. It kicked off in June and ran through August.
This is the second year of the program, and nearly 50 STPGA Professionals from some of the finest golf clubs and facilities in the region participated. In 2011, the Charity Golf Summer program generated nearly $50,000 for the STPGA Foundation and many other deserving charities, which were chosen by participating STPGA Professionals. The Charity Golf Summer program was so successful this year that it raised nearly double last year’s amount.
“The Southern Texas PGA’s Charity Golf Summer Program will impact thousands of lives in a very positive manner, and we are thrilled that Rockspring Capital was the sole sponsor of this effort,” said STPGA Executive Director Mike Ray. “Every fundraising endeavor has costs, but thanks to their generous support virtually every dollar raised by our professionals will go directly to charity.”
We are very excited to have partnered with and supported a fantastic organization like the Southern Texas PGA. The program was a tremendous success and we are proud to have helped make this great charity even better.
