The AdventHealth Championship, the only PGA TOUR-sanctioned professional golf tournament in Kansas City, announced today the launch of their matching gift program, Play It Forward.
"On behalf of the AdventHealth Championship, AdventHealth Foundation, and Cocherl Family Foundation, we are excited to announce our newly rebranded matching gift program, Play It Forward, that benefits eligible 501(c)(3) organizations in the Kansas City community," said Executive Director Drew Van Meeteren
Play It Forward, formerly known as Birdies for Charity, was created with one goal in mind - to support 501(c)(3) organizations in the Kansas City community by providing a platform to raise new money and gain awareness for their causes. Through the Play It Forward program, organizations receive every penny raised, plus a 10% match on the first $50,000 it raises. There is no minimum amount that must be raised to receive the match. The matching gift is made possible through the Play It Forward program sponsor, the Cocherl Family Foundation.
The AdventHealth Championship is a cornerstone Kansas City event utilizing professional golf to positively impact the KC Heartland and those charities supported. The 2022 AdventHealth Championship will take place May 16-22 at Blue Hills Country Club. For more information about the AdventHealth Championship, please visit www.AdventHealthChampionship.com.
