Every year, the Whitford Charitable Fund selects worthy non-profits from Chester County as beneficiaries of proceeds from their annual Whitford Classic golf tournament. This year, Chester County Futures is honored to be selected as one of the non-profits recognized for our work in the Chester County community.
As a beneficiary of The Whitford Classic, we are asked to help secure several Individual Hole Sponsorships and sell raffle tickets for an American Express gift card worth $5,000. You can help the students of Chester County Futures by participating in this year’s Whitford Classic as an Individual Hole Sponsor for $125 or by purchasing a raffle ticket for $100.
Your participation in either of these opportunities can help us to obtain a gift of $8,000-$10,000 from the Whitford Charitable Fund. If you are interested in supporting Chester County Futures as an Individual Hole Sponsor or by purchasing a raffle ticket, please follow the link below.
You can also purchase sponsorships or Gala tickets at the link below. Please check the box that says “make this gift on behalf of an organization” and put the name CCF in the box. If you are purchasing Gala tickets, there is a box after entering the billing address that allows you to indicate attendee names or what the donation is for. Purchasers of hole sponsorships, Gala tickets, and other sponsorships have a box to select on the form. Hole sponsorships should indicate what name they want on the sign in the optional box.
