EVENT INFORMATION

Wednesday, May 22
Richmond Country Club at 9100 Steveston Highway
1:00pm shotgun start

The 9th annual First Tee Pro-Am Challenge is all about raising funds to ensure vulnerable kids and youth can have the opportunity to learn the game of golf. The First Tee of the YMCA of Greater Vancouver enables kids ages 6-17 to learn how to set goals and build character while learning fundamental golf skills. Kids also learn essential life skills and positive values while having a whole lot of fun. Let’s face it—kids learn best when they’re having fun! 

This exciting shotgun tournament will offer amateur players an intimate experience to compete in an 18 hole team scramble with one of Canada’s premier golf professionals. Pros will be available to answer any golf-related questions and provide some swing advice. Participants receive a golf cart for their round, lunch, access to on-course hospitality tents and a gala reception dinner with silent and live auctions. 

Our fundraising goal this year is to raise $80,000 for programming, outreach, subsidies and expansion and we need your help. We are seeking like-minded corporations and individuals to get involved as sponsors which will be used to:
  • Introduce the Life Skills Experience Program™ to over 1,500 young people through our targeted outreach programming in partnership with the Vancouver and Surrey school boards.
  • Serve over 600 youth in after-school, spring break and summer camp registered programs.
  • Provide free Life Skills Experience Program™ to over 200 children from the downtown eastside.

Contact us for sponsorship opportunities and to register a team!
