PGA makes donation to Boys & Girls Club in Benton Harbor

Posted:

Some kids in Benton Harbor got a pretty cool gift from the PGA of America on Wednesday.

A donation of 75-thousand dollars was presented to the Boys and Girls Club and First Tee. It's part of a 4 year commitment from the PGA to support youth development programming.

Jeffrey Hintz is the PGA Championship Director. "What we try to do is leave a lasting legacy after we host a championship in a community," Hintz says. "Obviously, we'll be here for four years, so we're able to do a lot more in the community for a total of four championships, obviously our second one is coming up in 2014 "

The full commitment over the 4 years totals 300-thousand dollars for the youth organizations in the city.
