Fundraise From EVERYBODY, Not Just the Golfers!

Your charity golf tournament brings in a lot of golfers. But there are MANY more people that care about your cause, right?
So the golfers are a good place to start…but don’t STOP there! Your on-course contests may just be for the players, but there are SO many other things you can do to a)raise more money and b)engage all the NON golfers! Low hanging fruit is surely the auction; either a live or silent one…or both. You need to have great memorabilia that’s ON CONSIGNMENT; i.e. you only pay for what you sell. AND…why stop at memorabilia? There are fabulous trips, adventures and experiences that can garner some serious attention…and revenue! Your raffle prizes are also an easy ‘target’ to put put there for non-golfers. Tournament Pros can help you with all of these great fundraising ideas. AND…there’s one more GREAT fundraiser that can be offered to one and all; our Texas Hold’em scratchcards… with 52 winning cash combinations on EVERY card. They’re only $1.25/card…and WE pay out all winning prizes which range from $100 to $1000! You can sell them for whatever you like; $2/card, $5/card, 3 for $10?!? Best of all, these cards are fully refundable if you don’t use them! Contact us today at info@tournamentpros.com, 800-790-4653 and find out how you can easily be all-inclusive…and let EVERYONE in on the FUNDraising!

Hole-in-1 Prizes (that won’t break the bank…or your budget)!

Every charity golf tournament on the planet gives away SOMETHING for that shot of a lifetime. The trick is to not give away the store in doing so! It is a CHARITY golf outing, after all! Even if you have a full field (144 players), you don’t have to sink a fortune into insurance coverage…if you choose wisely. Expensive fancy cars WILL cost you a pretty penny…and there’s just no reason to go down that road (pun intended). Golfers aren’t going to ask, or want to know, if the hole-in-one prize is valued over $50K…”or I’m not going to play”. Just doesn’t happen. So don’t even bother with any prize over $10K…because a)that’s enough to get everyone’s interest and b)the premium will cost you less than $300! And here at Tournament Pros, our coverage includes prizes for the other par 3 holes AND signs for all of them. One more helpful hint…why not set it up so the CHARITY enjoys some of the spoils from that shot of a lifetime!? The winner will look like a hero, puffing his/her chest out with the notion that they just made a chunk of change for the cause by their deft skill with a golf club! Whatever the cash prize is, just make sure the sign on the tee says “Half to the winner, half to the Charity”. (Don’t ask the player to give up half AFTER the fact!!!) Players know why they are there; it’s about helping people…and they’ll be happy to help…and take home a little something extra for their trouble! We’d be happy to show you how easy it is to set up YOUR hole-in-one prizes…reach out today to info@tournamentpros.com or 800-790-4653. And here’s to holing out!!

Think Outside the “Tee-Prize” Box!

Anything but another golf shirt…please! That’s what we hear many of the players at a charity golf tournament say time and time again! THAT player gift has run its “course”! If ever the phrase “think outside the box” was appropriate…this would be it. The tee-prize is the one thing that sticks with the golfers long after the last putt drops…so why not make it memorable?! Maybe something electronic? Or a household item? That’s right; there’s no rule that says the gift the players get HAS to be golf-related. Be creative! Maybe something for the spouse? Or the kids? We here at Tournament Pros can put your logo (or a sponsor’s) on over 100 different unique gifts that will remind everyone of the wonderful event your organization held…long after it’s over! Call or email for your free gift catalog today:
800-790-4653, info@tournamentpros.com. And welcome to life outside the box!!

Memorabilia Schmemorabilia….

Your golfers have no doubt seen their fair share of autographed Tiger Woods pictures, so why not liven things up…literally!?!

Send them on a safari! To the Sphere in Las Vegas! To the Super Bowl!!
How about a wine-tasting adventure in Napa? Or a virtual private piano lesson from–wait for it–Elton John!

Yes…it’s (way past) time to spruce up your auction. Best of all, just LIKE our memorabilia ‘auction-in-a-box’ program,
you pay NOTHING to display dozens of these fantastic adventures and experiences until they are sold! No shipping costs either.
At NO cost, we will provide you with beautiful color fliers that you simply post next to a bid sheet. That’s it! Then you sit back and watch your golfers take multiple double-takes each time they read yet another dream experience: Like tickets to the Emmys! Or the Grammys! Or the Oscars!! Nascar Driving Course! Tuscany Getaway! We love Tiger Woods, but your golfers are gonna love these adventures a whole lot more. Contact us for all the details; info@tournamentpros.com, 800-790-4653.

Time to put your auction on steroids forever more!
