PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida – St. John’s County non-profit, Investing in Kids (INK!) has been named for the second year as the Official Charity Partner of the upcoming PXG Women’s Match Play Championship. As the sole financial beneficiary of the professional women’s golf tournament, Investing in Kids will raise money through the INK! Charity Pro-am and through the proceeds of tickets sales.
Last year, INK! Raised more than $50,000 through the Pro-am, its biggest single-day fundraiser ever. This year’s Pro-am will be held at the host course, the World Golf Village Slammer & Squire course on October 31. The Official Pairings Party will be hosted again by Murray Brother’s Caddy Shack restaurant on Oct. 30.
Also playing a significant role in the INK! Charity Pro-am is Murgado Maserati Jacksonville, which is offering a 2022 Maserati Levante as a hole in one prize. Murgado Automotive Group/ Bentley & Maserati Jacksonville is a Founding Partner of the overall Championship.
A true Pro-am, each of the three-person amateur teams will be paired with one of the professional players taking part in the PXG Women’s Match Play Championship, which will feature 84 of the best rising star professional players not yet on the LPGA Tour.
Being held Oct. 31, the Pro-am tournament features lunch prior to teeing off and a post-tournament awards reception in the clubhouse.
