GREAT SHOT GOLF AND RALLY FOR THE CURE® OFFER ATTENDEES A CHANCE TO MAKE A HOLE IN ONE AND SHARE A MILLION DOLLARS WITH SUSAN G. KOMEN®
Lincolnshire, IL, January 14, 2015 – Great Shot Golf is returning to the PGA Show’s Demo Day with the Million Dollar Shootout on Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 at Orange County National Golf Center in Orlando. Demo Day attendees will have a chance to take a shot on a par 3 from 9a to 3p and the six closest to the pin will return for the shootout at 3p. If a qualifier makes a hole in one during the shootout, the individual will win one million dollars. If a golfer makes the hole in one during the day, the individual will win $10,000.
Rally for the Cure, a breast cancer awareness golf program benefiting Susan G. Komen, is a co- sponsor of this year’s Million Dollar Shootout. Should a golfer make a hole in one during the shootout, the million dollar prize will be shared with Komen. If any golfer makes a hole in one during the day, the individual will win $10,000. Great Shot Golf will donate an additional $10,000 to the charity.
“We are thrilled to have Rally join us at Demo Day as part of our ‘We Give Back’ charity program,” said Great Shot Golf President, Scott Bauer. “We help programs like Rally raise money for charities through hole-in-one and other golf contests such as our 10% give back or the 50/50 Big Bonus Prizes,” added Bauer.
“Each year, Rally enlists thousands of volunteers to join the fight against breast cancer by hosting a Rally event at their course,” said Rally Associate Director of Marketing, Holly Gill. “We thank Great Shot Golf for allowing us to kick-off the 2015 golf season with such a wonderful opportunity.”
