With the support of the PGA of Australia and Golf Australia, the #DoingItForJarrod fundraising campaign is back in 2020 with events to take place during October and November, culminating again in Yellow Day festivities on Friday 4 December at the Australian PGA Championship.
Every golf club around Australia is officially invited to join this collaborative campaign and help raise funds for Challenge – a not-for-profit, which supports kids and families living with cancer. The funds raised will specifically go towards Jarrod’s Gift – the legacy created by Challenge in honour of their dear ambassador, Jarrod Lyle.
To get involved, simply allocate one members’ day in October or November to become your club’s #DoingItForJarrod day, and collect a gold coin from every player.
Every golf club that registers will receive a special pack that includes:
- An A3 poster to help advertise your event date
- A yellow #DoingItForJarrod pin flag (this year with #2 included in the design)
- A black Titleist cap with yellow embroidery for the organiser
- A Titleist prize pack with a sleeve of yellow Titleist golf balls and a black Titleist towel OR Titleist valuables pouch
- Five special Yellow Tickets that allow the bearer to attend any one day of the 2020 Australian PGA Championship
Every club will also go in the major prize draw to win one of three all-expenses-paid experiences to Brisbane to play in the 2020 Australian PGA Championship Pro-Am at Royal Queensland Golf Club, and the name of each club will be included on the PGA of Australia’s #DoingItForJarrod honour board.
- To be eligible for the major prize draw, clubs must complete a #DoingItForJarrod registration form by 25 October2020 and must nominate a date between 1 October 2020 and 30 November 2020 to hold their event.
- The major prize will be drawn on 30 October 2020 with three clubs to be chosen at random and the winners to be contacted directly by Challenge.
- The major prize includes return economy class airfares to Brisbane from an Australian capital city, a standard twin share room, airport transfers to and from the accommodation, general admission access to the golf, and an amateur playing spot in the Australian PGA Championship Pro-Am to be held at Royal Queensland Golf Club on Wednesday 2 December.
- Any food, beverages or other expenses outside that included in the Pro-Am is at the expense of the guest.
- The prize, or any unused portion of the prize, is not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be taken as cash.
- If spectators are not allowed on-course for the 2020 Australian PGA Championship and/or the Pro-Am does not proceed as planned, the major prize will be rolled over to 2021 and the winners offered the same inclusions as listed above.
PLEASE NOTE: The prize may change depending on current COVID-19 restrictions.
