2021 JPGA GOLF INVITATIONAL, SUNDAY, 9/19/2021, 9:00 AM
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO…
We all have a passion for golf and an interest in seeing more youth play the sport, advance their skills, excel academically, and establish careers. Fortunately, golf is a means for youth/young adults to accomplish those goals.
In addition to serving as the umbrella for leagues/clubs to have a voice in the proposed restoration at Jackson Park/South Shore, our mission for youth is to provide families with the resources and wherewithal for college scholarships, tournament fees, and other areas to keep children engaged in this sport we love.
Through partnerships and continued motivation to positively impact the lives of youth, we trained 16 juniors in our caddy program in the spring of 2019; partnered with Cousins Empowered Optimist (CEO) to offer coding classes as part of our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) initiative
On August 8, 2020, we awarded two Jackson Park caddies, Raquel Simpson and Mathis Wint, scholarships! Click HERE to read their stories. At the same time, our motivation to advance the goals of young adults who want to play golf professionally was achieved when we awarded a scholarship to DeVaughn Mathus. He played in the Advocates APGA Tournament at TPC Deere Run on August 16-17, 2020 in Silvis, IL.
In 2021, JPGA has expanded our philanthropy – thanks to supporters of our annual golf invitational – to sponsor two young men to play in the Advocate Professional Golf Association (APGA) Tour at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, IL! CONGRATULATIONS Mulbe Dillard of Florida A&M University (FAMU) and DeVaughn Mathus!
Additionally, scholarships were awarded to two high school seniors because of their academic acumen and service as caddies at Jackson Park Golf Course. CONGRATULATIONS Ethan Verner (De La Salle Institute) and Kendall Dillon (Butler College Prep)! Click HERE to read their stories.
