Pasadena, MD (PRWEB) February 22, 2011
Youth Golf Network, Inc is hosting its first Annual Charity Golf-A-Thon Meet and Greet in support of its charity golf event that will take place in the Fall.
YGN will host its event on Friday, April 22, 2011 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Big Vanilla Fitness Center in Pasadena, Md. The event will provide details of the upcoming Golf-A-Thon and is open to participants of the Golf-A-Thon, donors, sponsors, family and friends. Food and drinks will be provided. Those attending must register before April 15, 2011.
“We're excited about this event. We believe it will be informative and fun. We look forward to seeing supporters of youth programs in Anne Arundel County and throughout the state of Maryland,” said Jeanette Ortegon, president of YGN.
YGN currently is looking for golfers who are willing to participate in the Golf-A-Thon in September as a team or individual. Participating golfers will get pledges from family and friends to support YGN's youth programs. Non-golfers can pledge $1, $2 or $3 per hole. Please visit http://www.youthgolfnetwork.org for more information on participating or pledging. Donations will also be accepted via the website.
In addition to youth programs, the organization raises money to support cancer research through golf events held throughout the year. The group is starting a scholarship fund that will allow a deserving high school graduate to attend college in 2012.
