Bridgestone Teams Up To Help Kids With Cancer


Recommended Posts

Would you pay 50% more for a dozen golf balls if you knew those proceeds were going to a worthy cause? Personally, I'm willing to bet that if your family has gone through something like this, or if you have friends who have, it very well might be a small price to pay.  Read on...

Hit N.I.C.K.'s CAMP Balls and Help Kids Battling Cancer

 

Coconut Creek, FL - Each year, more than 15,000 kids and young adults are diagnosed with cancer. The Chiera Family Foundation has teamed up with Bridgestone Golf, so now, by playing golf with a special golf ball, you can make a difference. By purchasing a dozen N.I.C.K.'s CAMP golf balls, you can help kids who are battling cancer attend a special summer camp called NICK's CAMP, send young adults who have beaten cancer to college, and even teach young cancer patients life lessons and golf through The First Tee of Broward.

 

Once you purchase the golf balls, take a photo or video hitting a N.I.C.K.'s CAMP golf ball in the most unusual place. Use your imagination - strike a pose, hit with a group of people, or even a celebrity! The top photos or videos posted will be judged with the winner receiving a free trip entry to the N.I.C.K.'s CAMP golf tournament in South Florida. Just e-mail your entry to info@cheirafamilyfoundation.org or use #playitforwardon social media. Then, play it forward by buying another dozen to send to a golf buddy!

 

But that's not all! Bridgestone Golf merchandise will be awarded to people who send in photos and videos. Also, when people visit ChieraFamilyFoundation.org, they can order the golf balls to be shipped to them monthly or quarterly. Companies or country clubs can also logo the balls on the opposite side for co-branding at other charity golf tournaments.

 

“Golfers by and large are generous people.  In fact, the World Golf Foundation estimates that from the professional ranks down to local events, the game of golf raises $3.9 billion annually for charities,” said Corey Consuegra, Senior Director of Marketing – Bridgestone Golf, Inc. “Play It Forward is an innovative program that capitalizes on this generosity and the spirit of camaraderie that golf has fostered for centuries, to give golfers the ability to provide friends with excellent performing golf balls, while at the same time letting kids with cancer know that we have their backs.  Bridgestone is proud to partner with the Chiera Family Foundation on this important initiative and we look forward to its growth.” 

 

N.I.C.K. stands for Nothing Is Impossible for Cancer Kids. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these golf balls can give young cancer patients a summer they will never forget. Some of the same kids who have been sent to camp and attended golf clinics are also going to college through N.I.C.K.'s Scholarships. For more information about getting involved with the Chiera Family Foundation, visit ChieraFamilyFoundation.org or call 1-800-344-0545, ext 21.

Okay MyGolfSpy'ers --- this is a worthy cause on all its own, but I just bought a dozen and will ship them, free of charge, to the first MGS'er who posts a copy of his receipt for buying a dozen on his own.  That's right, two dozen for the price of one.  Well, one and a half, but it's for a great cause!

Cool idea, but for me without some sort of matching on the part of the company doing the sales I'd rather just donate directly.
