Volunteers Raise $65,000 for Youth Programs

The Leadership Advisory Board and friends of The First Tee completed another successful year of the Longest Day of Golf and Birdies & Brews – two events that make up one major fundraising endeavor for the organization. In its fourth year, these valuable volunteers raised $65,000 for The First Tee of Greater Richmond. Support from special events provide the organization with needed support to carry out dynamic youth development programs to the young people of RVA.

The Longest day of golf

The two-day event kicked off on Friday, October 12th with the 2018 Longest Day of Golf. At The Tattersall Youth Development Center at The First Tee Chesterfield Golf Course, 18 players played golf from 8am to 5pm while soliciting support through their individual fundraising pages.

Birdies & Brews

The following evening, Birdies & Brews completed the fun – open to the public, over 140 guests purchased tickets to receive unlimited golf, live music, and food and beverage at The Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range. Thank you to our event entertainment sponsors:
