The Core Values Cup is a unique event for our donors and participants of The First Tee of the Upstate. The teams are made up of two donors and one The First Tee of the Upstate participant. Historically we have hosted this event in December and it was a nine-hole scramble at a local country club. In 2019 we are moving the event to October and to a new venue, TopGolf!
There is no entry fee to participate. We just ask that our donors contact 10 friends or family members and ask for a $100 donation to The First Tee of the Upstate. Also, this year we are asking our participants also ask 15 friends and family members for a $10 donation.
Our total goal is to raise over $30,000 for the mission of The First Tee of the Upstate.
