We would like to thank both Carolinas Golf Association and The South Carolina Junior Golf Association for providing our chapter the grant money to continue this important FREE week-long camp each summer to our kids and teens. This program has helped our chapter continue to attract and retain teen participants. 
We are very excited to expand our STEMLinks Programming in 2023, so that more kids and teens can learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in a fun way.

Congratulations to the winners of The 8th Annual Core Values Cup! The UseToCoulds (team name) raised A RECORD $9,430 and won by three points! This made it back-to-back wins for The UseToCoulds and they are excited to defend their title again in 2023!

The Core Values Cup is an annual event that pairs three donors with one First Tee participant. All four raise funds to support First Tee programming. The more money the team raises the more points they receive. They also receive points through a Stableford points system base on their play at the event. The team with the most points wins The Core Values Cup!

Do you have what it takes to beat The UseToCoulds in 2023?! Contact Michael Pius at [email protected] to learn how you can get involved in this fun event.

Annual Appeal Update

Why donate to our mission?

In the face of rising social pressures, isolation and growing anxiety, our kids deserve to be equipped with the inner strength that life demands of them today. We believe every kid deserves the chance to build inner strength before the world demands it, to find the joy that comes with feeling confident in their own skin, and to access experiences and spaces where personal growth happens. We provide the safe space to make this happen!

We Build Game Changers!
