Charity Fantasy Golf announces expansion across the country

Upon completion of testing and the creation of a private label charity tournament web template plus a very successful test pilot program in Tampa, where a non-profit program raised over $15,000.00 in Net Revenue using the system, partners in Charity Fantasy Golf (CFG) are ready to start booking charity clients.

Golf Sales Agents (GSA'S) have now been hired through connections using social media sites to take the program into communities in the USA. GSA'S living in select & targeted cities in Indiana, Kentucky, Florida, California, Illinois, Texas, Arizona, Maryland, Ohio, Georgia, Missouri, and Massachusetts will begin introducing the concept to non-profits of all types in a phased training approach which includes potential clients registering and playing in a PGA Tour DEMO Fantasy golf tournament, learning the flexible operation of the CFG Web platform. GSA'S include PGA Members, Event Planners, Golf Tournament Managers, Golfers with business interests, and businessmen/women looking to take on additional services to increase revenue streams, have responded overwhelmingly positive to this unique and fun concept!

Both partners of CFG agree that the key to the early success will be well planned charity committee work and due diligence in recruiting players and sponsors, not uncommon in any Charity Golf Tournament. However, the difference will be the VIRTUAL nature of the Contest (4-5 PGA Tour events), the popularity of pre-selected events on the PGA Tour in the VIRTUAL contest, and the automation of the Web platform in accomplishing all communications needed with participants throughout the CFG Contest.

Due to the popularity of the Internet and the growing rate of Fantasy Players, plus the struggling economy, partners of CFG believe they have created a can't miss alternative to canceling the annual charity golf event. CFG has created a pricing strategy that will allow greater participation, ease in securing sponsorship sales with more exposure and impression value being delivered, and a penetration into a younger demographic who typically does not support charitable drives. All in all the recipe for success will be determined by the effective tournament management by CFG and their GSA'S. Hence, the backgrounds of those GSA'S who have been hired will be a true asset to the success of CFG!

Any individual interested in learning more about our GSA program should send an e-mail to Bob Gaudreau-National Sales Manager/Partner of CFG to find out if your area is already covered!
