The First Tee of Greater Wilmington
To date, Champions for Education has donated over $19 million to charitable foundations in the Charlotte region. The First Tee of Greater Wilmington will be the primary beneficiary of the 2017 Wells Fargo Championship. Re-established in 2016 as a local chapter, this organization’s goal is to reach 25,000 youth within the community by 2018. With support from the City of Wilmington, a track of land adjacent to the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course has been allocated for the building of a new program site. With construction slated to begin in January 2017, the facility will consist of 3 hole practice course, driving net area and 1000 square foot classroom building creating a solid learning environment. The grand opening of the new facility is scheduled for the week of our tournament.
Champions for Education is proud to assist in this effort and embraces the opportunity for the Wells Fargo Championship to leave a permanent legacy in Wilmington, through the Frist Tee Chapter and various other organizations.
