Troon program again raising funds for Phoenix Children's Hospital

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- For the third consecutive year, Troon-managed facilities throughout Arizona are uniting to raise funds for Phoenix Children's Hospital through Troon's "Hit the Green for PCH" program, while giving golfers the chance to win exciting prizes.

From October 4 through November 17, 2013, golfers are invited to take part in Troon's Hit the Green for PCH contest held on designated par three golf holes at several Troon courses. By making a $10 donation, participants automatically receive a certificate good for 15% off their next purchase in the host facility's golf shop. Those that land their shot anywhere on the green are upgraded to a 30% off certificate, while those who stick their shot inside 10 feet of the hole win a 2014 National Troon TwoSome Card, valued at $595, compliments of Troon. And the best part of all…100% of the money raised is donated directly to Phoenix Children's Hospital.

"So many families have been positively impacted by the care and work that Phoenix Children's Hospital is committed to providing day in and day out," stated John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations for Troon. "Even within our own family of Troon associates you will find examples of how Phoenix Children's Hospital has helped them or a loved one through a challenging time in their lives. That being said, we are honored to help raise awareness for their mission and also raise much needed funds for their cause."

In 2011, Hit the Green for PCH raised $20,000, which was more than doubled the following year with $45,000 raised. The fundraising goal for 2013 is expected to reach $50,000 during the course of the promotion. Funds will be presented to Phoenix Children's Hospital during the 15th Annual Phoenix Children's Hospital Annual Golf Tournament held Friday, November 22 at Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
