BOYLSTON, Mass. — Tournament Solutions will support PGA REACH New England once again in 2021 through the Fore The Foundation program, generously donating 10 percent of all business done with New England PGA Professionals back to the foundation.
Tournament Solutions has been a loyal supporter of the New England PGA and its foundation for years, and brings the Fore The Foundation back for the third year after successful campaigns in 2018 and 2019, the latter resulting in almost a $10,000 contribution to the foundation. Tournament Solutions founder John Lawrence is hoping to cut a $20,000 check to PGA REACH New England this year.
“Our very first major customer and merchandise license in 2005 was with the PGA of America. Because we were involved with the PGA of America on a national scale, we also felt that it was important that we support our local Section,” Lawrence said.
Tournament Solutions has been a supporter of NEPGA charitable programming since that partnership began, getting involved with the annual George S. Wemyss Scholarship Pro-Am to help raise scholarship money for the children, step children and grandchildren of PGA Professionals.
“My partner Pam Berube and I really loved the idea that the Wemyss tournament directly benefited NEPGA Professionals and their families,” Lawrence added. “Upon hearing of the launch of the NEPGA Foundation at the PGA Show in 2017, I immediately knew that Tournament Solutions had to be involved, and in a significant way. After several discussions with NEPGA Executive Director Mike Higgins and his team, we came up with the Fore The Foundation program.”
As an added incentive for New England PGA Professionals to help support PGA REACH New England through the Fore The Foundation initiative, the NEPGA will reward the facility that generates the largest Fore The Foundation contribution with a complimentary group in the 2021 Foundation Outing.
“The continuing partnership and support of Tournament Solutions has been paramount for PGA REACH New England,” said Michael Packard, PGA, Director of PGA REACH New England. “As we look for new ways to impact lives through the game of golf, we know with certainty that Tournament Solutions will be there with us every step of the way.”
In addition to the Fore The Foundation program, Tournament Solutions also sponsors two events on the NEPGA schedule, the NEPGA Pro-Officer Invitational and the NEPGA Foundation Outing. Tournament Solutions is also the Official Gift and Award Company of Mass Golf and sponsors LPGA Player Megan Khang of Rockland, Mass.
