"I am thrilled to lend my support and personal blessing to Champion Events Group and its president, Don Carmichael. I recommend them to you enthusiastically, whole-heartedly, and without reservation. Our golf marathon program, directed by Don, raised over $500,000 for our Why Wait? campaign. I wish you the greatest success!"
"Your golf event was the best fundraiser in our entire history! Our six events over the years have averaged in the $70,000s generating $400,000 to date. One of the great benefits is they have allowed us to cut out all the small fundraisers we used to do."
"Our first golf marathon raised $96,500 and was the most successful fundraising event in our history of almost 30 years!... Your system is expertly designed, a person just has to follow the plan and be highly motivated."
The Golf & Walk Event is a new event concept that combines a fundraising golf tournament with a unique "walkathon" at the golf course. Walkers walk nine holes on cart paths at a beautiful golf course. They are kept separate from golfers in complete safety. Everyone finishes together at the end for an awards celebration.
All participants raise donations prior to the event. The Golf & Walk Event is planned on a 12-week timeline and mobilizes everyone in your network to raise money for you, not just those 15% of adults who can play golf. Because its foundation is "relational" fundraising in its most effective form, the Golf & Walk Event is currently producing the highest dollar results of the standard Big 3 fundraising events (banquets, auctions, traditional golf tournaments).
