The Dogwood Invitational Tees-Off “Pars for Patrick & Birdies for Brennan”
Tournament Raises Donations for the Press On Fund Via Charitable Giving Site Crowdrise
The Dogwood Invitational at Druid Hills Golf Club launches its next step in charitable giving with “Pars for Patrick & Birdies for Brennan” in support of the Press On to Cure Childhood Cancer Fund. Using the Crowdrise platform, The “Pars for Patrick & Birdies for Brennan” campaign asks you to donate based on the number of pars and birdies as a single donation amount.
“At last year’s Dogwood we saw 3,100 pars and 1,104 birdies made during the tournament, and we need your donation based on those Pars and Birdies to raise our goal of $10,000 tournament week,” said Edward Toledano – tournament chairman. “This year we are proud to not only cultivate the careers of some of the world’s best young athletes, but we have the unique opportunity to give back to a foundation at the heart of our club.”

Each year the tournament dedicates proceeds from sponsorship dollars to local charities whose goals, mission and vision align with the invitational’s profile. This year the tournament has added the Press On to Cure Childhood Cancer Fund in honor of Druid Hills Golf Club members Erin and Stephen Chance, who formed The Press On Fund in 2006 after their son Patrick Chance was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma.
