“We chose to play this year to raise needed funds for the Wisconsin Junior PGA Foundation as they hold junior golf tournaments for kids of all ages and provide scholarships for kids that wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate in these events. We have played in the Wisconsin Junior PGA tournaments for many years and it’s been an incredible experience for us, especially during COVID-19,” said Alex Weiss.
“They also provide college scholarships for kids that decide to play college golf. Their mission statement is to promote the game of golf by providing positive opportunities, enjoyment, and education to Wisconsin junior golfers and their families. Any size donation is greatly appreciated and will go a long way to provide opportunities for these kids who couldn’t afford to play otherwise,” said Brett Wieland.
