We would like to introduce you to the River Cup Foundation, a central Illinois organization dedicated to the game of golf and its future.
The River Cup Foundation is an outgrowth of the River Cup competition, a Ryder Cup style format showcasing the areas top amateur golfers. First played in 1993, the players developed the idea of forming a foundation to not only showcase the competitions but to also support charitable activities in the community.
The Foundation is a federally approved 501 (c)3 not for profit corporation, whose mission statement is to benefit youth and worthy charities in the tri-county area through the game of golf. We also provide college scholarships to central Illinois residents, promote golf competitions and serve the game by sponsoring an annual youth golf clinic and increasing awareness of important issues facing the game through our annual benefit dinner. This is accomplished with an all volunteer Board of Directors and no paid staff.
We will continue our philanthropic endeavors for the care and welfare of children with special needs. Golf and giving go well together!
Ted Bishop - President of the PGA of America will be our guest November 17th at our 14th Benefit Dinner.
Due to the tragic events of yesterday, we are going to re-schedule our event. Please stay tuned for details. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this terrible storm.
