Join the former #1 player in the world, Luke Donald, on Tuesday, September 12 as he hosts the Taste of The First Tee, a wine tasting to benefit The First Tee of Greater Chicago at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest during the BMW Championship. The benefit event will take place between 5-9PM and feature some of Luke Donald’s own collection of wines, including the Luke Donald Chardonnay, Claret and Viognier wines.
The Taste of The First Tee will also feature a number of auction items including signed sports memorabilia, golf experiences with Luke Donald and much more. In addition, Luke will be joined by PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem in a question and answer discussion about the state of The PGA TOUR and other golf topics to give guests a unique behind-the-scenes perspective on the world of golf.
“In 2009, the Taste of the First Tee began as a way to help raise funds and awareness for the work of The First Tee of Greater Chicago” said Luke Donald. “Since its inception, we have raised over $600,000 to support the programs and we are introducing the game of golf and its values to over 15,000 Chicago area kids.”
All proceeds raised at the Annual Taste of The First Tee will benefit The First Tee of Greater Chicago and its character education programs for young people.
