Charity Golf Supports National MS Society

Charity Golf Supports National MS Society – On August 14th the MS Golf Outing commences to raise funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Each heroic fundraising campaign held worldwide in support of this organization raises funds towards researching multiple sclerosis (MS) which is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. If your organization is planning a charity golf tournament, here are some tips from the best.

“This event has been a huge success year after year.”

Golf Tournament Planning Tips

“The format is a four-person scramble, and awards will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams for the Low Gross Team Scores.  Golfers can participate in skill prize contests such as Million Dollar Shoot-Out, Putting Contest, Longest Drive, Longest Putt, Closest to the Pin, Hole in One Contests and more. Individuals and teams are welcome!” Although it may seem inconsequential, choosing your golf tournament format can make or break your charity golf event.  Consider who your audience is as some formats are fun and more laid back while others are more formal and serious.

The MS Golf Outing has partnered with Steel City Auctions to provide some excellent autographed sports memorabilia to be auctioned at the dinner following the tournament. A golf auction gives everyone in your community an opportunity to donate to your cause through bidding on golf auction items online, at your event, or both.

“The National MS Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to  address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. Researchers supported by the National MS Society found that comparing levels of two molecules in the brain with MRI scanning could predict MS progression. With further study, this may be a useful tool for tracking the benefits of treatments in clinical trials aimed at protecting the nervous system from damage.”

With a golf tournament website you can register golfers online, collect donations, and manage your charity golf tournament from start to finish. A golf tournament website will help your organization raise more money for your charity golf event, golf marathon, or golf fundraising campaign while saving time and resources during the golf tournament planning.
