TGA Foundation Raffle Winners Announced
First, the TGA Foundation would like to express a big “thank you” to all the thoughtful golfers who entered this year’s raffle contest to help raise money for the Foundation’s mission to provide worthy young boys and girls in Texas with life-changing opportunities through the game of golf. More than 300 tickets were sold throughout the year for a chance to win one of two VIP packages to Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort in Boerne.
Now on to the big news. The winners of the two prize packages, valued at over $3,000, were selected on Dec. 5, following a random drawing.
The Grand Prize winner was Kevin Falls of Hutto, who bought his ticket last month at the Texas Shamble. Falls won a two-night stay in the George Strait Suite at Tapatio Springs and two rounds of golf for four on the resort’s award-winning course.
The second big winner of the day was David Atnip of Fort Worth, who bought his ticket in May by getting in touch with Kelly Kilgo, Managing Director of TGA Foundation/Outreach. Atnip won a two-night stay in a Traditional Suite and two rounds of golf for two.
All proceeds from the raffle will be used to fund the Foundation’s array of junior golf development programs and initiatives both on and off the course, including access to affordable rounds of golf for $5 or less with Youth on Course, paid high school internships through the Bill Penn Program, college scholarships, and much more.
Congratulations to Kevin and David, and thanks again to all who entered!
