St. Jude Hospital
The fundraising event I would do would be a golf tournament. The tournament would be held at the TPC Southwind golf course. This event will be called Playing with the Pros Golfing Event. People will have the opportunity to be coached by a professional golf player. Each participant would pay $5000.00 for a total of 3 rounds of golf. There will be 2 teams per round of golf. The professional golfer would be by their side throughout the entire 3 rounds of golf. For an additional $5,000.00 they would be invited to attend a special banquet where they would dine with all the professional golfers from the tournament. The top player would receive an award cup engraved and the photo plaque with the professional golfer of his choice. There would also be an entrance fee to view the tournament of $2500.00 per person. There would be stands with information about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the work it does. Also features merchandise from the Hope Gift Book.
