The PGA Tour Players donated $21,000 to the 1st Tee of Coachella Valley in Palm Desert, a non-profit program for children. The monies came from the Pro-Am at the Humana Challenge Golf Tournament. The program teaches 9 core values in conjunction with a golf program.

PGA Tour Pro Scott McCarron presented the check to Glenn Miller, Executive Director of the 1st Tee Program. Members of the Desert Classic Charities Board and Humana Challenge Golf Tournament, The 1st Tee Staff, Local Dignitaries, plus 50 1st Tee children and their families were there for this presentation. The event was held on Wed., April 25th at the
Golf Course in Palm Desert, Home of the 1st Tee.

Scott McCarron held a golf clinic for the children after the presentation. He donated several golf bags full of golf clubs to the 1st Tee. He collected these clubs during his career as a Pro Golfer. Scott asked the children to tell the 9 core values and had several children come up to hit a few balls.

The Golf Humana Challenge, formerly known and the Bob Hope Classic has donated over 52 million dollars in the last 53 years. Over 2 million dollars were donated this year to 40 local charities which is a record amount. Charities are struggling during this down economy and these monies are greatly appreciated to continue much needed programs.
