St. Joseph Social Service Center is joining forces with the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless in a major fund raising event. The PGA Tour is running The Barclays golf tournament at Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, August 20-25, 2013. The PGA Tour distributes all profits from each event to local charities like ours, so there is the potential for this project to bring in substantial funds. The more volunteers we enroll to assist, the larger the donation we receive. We hope you can take part.
For detailed information and instructions on how to register, visit barclaysvolunteers.pgatourhq.com and scroll the left sidebar. When registering it is extremely important that when you navigate to ORGANIZATION (in the Affiliation box), be sure to select "St. Joseph Social Service Center/ECTHTH." The committees and shifts for volunteers are filling up fast, so we recommend that you act soon.
Being outdoors at a major sporting event with a spectacular view of the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline promises to be a memorable experience, made even better with the realization that we're helping our two worthy organizations. Enlist family and friends to join you, increasing the fun.
There is another way for our organizations to significantly benefit from this PGA tournament: through TICKETS fore CHARITY. Detailed information is provided on the Barclay's web site above.
We're promoting ticket sales for the Barclays golf tournament in a way that is designed to be comfortable for all. As an example of the potential good that could come from flyer/poster distribution, consider that a single well-placed poster could reasonably inspire purchases of six passes for the week and four daily tickets, which would bring our organizations over $725.
Click here to see the recently completed TICKETS Fore CHARITY flyer/poster. Place 81/2" x 11" paper into your printer to print as many copies as you would care to distribute to friends, relatives, sports fans, fellow employees, etc. Use regular copy paper for flyers. When heavier card stock (like 110 index) is used, you have poster durability, perfect for window, wall and bulletin board placement in churches, civic organizations, stores, places of business, country clubs, etc. Those without printers who would like to participate can pick up flyers and posters at 118 Division Street in Elizabeth.
Your ideas, initiative and creativity are important factors in the success of this fund raiser. Our thanks go out to those who have already done much to get this program off to a great start.
