VALERO TEXAS OPEN: 12 DAYS OF GIVING
SAN ANTONIO, TX (Dec. 10, 2017)– At the Birdies for Charity® kick-off events in October, Valero Texas Open representatives announced the fourth annual “12 Days of Giving” that will take place December 1-12.
Participating charities and schools will receive $10 proceeds from each Good Any One Day general admission ticket (retail $25 per ticket) sold online at www.ValeroTexasOpen.com/tickets. Ticket purchasers should select the
Central Texas Wing as the charitable recipient they want to support from their ticket purchase.
The Valero Texas Open will also match up to an additional $500 per charity and the charity that generates the most ticket sales will also be awarded a $2,500 bonus (with a minimum of 50 tickets sold).
This initiative not only provides charities an additional opportunity to raise funds, but allows ticket buyers to make the most of their holiday gift giving. Mark your calendar to make your purchase in early December!
With “12 Days of Giving,” donors now have three great ways to give to the Central Texas Wing as their favorite cause through the Valero Texas Open’s Birdies for Charity fundraising campaign.
1) Make a pledge or donate to the Central Texas Wing as one of the 185+ charities participating in Birdies for Charity at www.ValeroTexasOpen.com/birdies
2) Purchase a ticket to the Valero Texas Open during the “12 Days of Giving” on www.ValeroTexasOpen.com/tickets
3) Attend the Valero Texas Open and register your attendance for the Central Texas Wing at the Donation Station.
Each of these will generate charitable contributions back to a variety of deserving organizations while giving donors the opportunity to win prizes along the way, including a Stay and Play Package to TPC San Antonio and JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.
The next edition of the Valero Texas Open will take place April 19-22, 2018 at TPC San Antonio.
ABOUT THE VALERO TEXAS OPEN
The Valero Texas Open is the sixth-oldest professional tournament in golf worldwide, the third-oldest on the PGA TOUR and the longest held in the same city. In 2012, the tournament celebrated its 90th anniversary.
Its list of champions includes some of the greatest names in golf history: Walter Hagen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Lee Trevino, Nick Price, Justin Leonard, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Jimmy Walker, and 2017 Champion Kevin Chappell, to name a few.
Since Valero became title sponsor in 2002, the tournament has become an annual leader in charitable fundraising among PGA TOUR events. In 2015, we were proud yet humbled to become only the fourth PGA TOUR event to eclipse the $100 million milestone in funds raised for charity. The 2017 edition of the Valero Texas Open raised $11 million for charity, bringing the grand total to over $126 million in charitable giving since 1922.
