2018 "Driving Out Poverty" Golf Marathon!
January 20, 2018 at Topgolf in Hillsboro

The 2018 "Driving Out Poverty" Golf Marathon will benefit Community Action Agency's mission of:

"Empowering people to change their lives and exit poverty by
providing vital services and community leadership.


This may sound crazy, and you may think we’re nuts, but WE NEED YOU to smash 100 golf balls with us on Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 10:00am-1:00pm at Topgolf in Hillsboro. With nominal participation from 25 Champion volunteers our goal is to raise $50,000 in the next several weeks to support CAA as we help individuals and families exit poverty.


We have made a commitment and need your help! We need you to join our team making the following three commitments:


Put Saturday, January 20th on your calendar to join us at Topgolf  from 10:00am-1:00pm to smash 100 golf balls and enjoy indulgent fun and food!  


Sponsor yourself for $100 ($1/ball) or more, payable in advance, and strive for a fundraising pledge goal of $2,500 or $1,000.


Give the ultimate effort to contact 25-35+ friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc., asking them to sponsor you and strive for your pledge goal.  This is much easier than you think, as people will be more than happy to support your effort and the goals of CAA. This can be done in less than 5 hours (and we'll show you how).

People give to people…so all you have to do is ask, and together we can make a big difference!

You can also be a “Team Captain”.  We need 6+ Team Captains to accomplish steps 1 – 2 – 3 above and put together a team of four participants (including yourself) and coach them up to success.



What if I don’t golf?  
No problem! Topgolf is fantastic, casual and fun for beginners. Check out the Topgolf experience here, or visit http://bit.ly/2nPDivG.
What if I can't be there on January 20th? 
No problem! Simply be a NON-GOLFING PARTICIPANT. Follow the same plan, pledge $100 (or more!) and reach out to your network to get sponsors who will help you gather resources to support low income individuals and families exit poverty. We (or you) can get someone else to fulfill your 100-ball challenge.
How is this organized?
This is a well-organized and fun campaign. The Golf Marathon website is the key to our success. It's the easy-to-use place where you enter your sponsor's pledge information and it does all the administrative work for you. Our site will send them a thank you note, tax deductible letter and details on how/where they can pay their pledge. Easy as a tap-putt!
