"Golf Gives Back" Tournament looking for local charities


This United Leasing Golf Championship is a little over three months away and now it's time to sign up the volunteers for "Golf Gives Back" presented by Old National Bank.

This year some big changes coming to how much money local charities can receive.

Volunteer organizations that sign up are responsible for selling tickets to the events. This year, they will receive 100 percent of all ticket sales instead of just the net proceeds.

Organizations will also get a portion of a twenty five thousand dollar pool provided by Old National Bank. How much of the pool they receive depends on the percentage of tickets the organization sells.

Susan Hardwick, chair of "Golf Gives Back" says charities should think of this as one of the easiest fundraising opportunities out there. The chairs of the organization handle all of the marketing--print, radio and television--and leaves most of the ticket sales up to the charities.

If you and your non-profit are interested in volunteering, go to the ULC website and click on the "Volunteer" button.

The tournament is scheduled for June 23-29.
