MA Chapter Gives Back
NEPGA Foundation gives lessons to Kids from Why Me? And Sherry's House
Shawn Durocher, PGA of Cyprian Keyes GC taught lessons to children from Worcester's Why Me? And Sherry's House on Wednesday, and presented them with a check from the NEPGA Foundation for $1,000.
The Why Me? and Sherry's House is an organization that supports families who have a child with pediatric cancer. They offer support through treatment and have a variety of services from support groups to financial support. Why Me was founded over 30 years ago, and stands for Worcester Help for Youth, Memories Everlasting.
Thank you to Shawn and Cyprian Keyes for donating their time and resources! Also, thank you to Rebecca Kuczarski and the Why Me? and Sherry's House for partnering with our Foundation!

'Fore the Foundation'
Tournament Solutions Partners with NEPGA Foundation
New England PGA Section partner Tournament Solutions is making a difference for the New England PGA Foundation in the 2018 season with a standing donation with purchase.
The Newburyport, MA Company has pledged to donate 10% of all purchases made by PGA Professionals to the NEPGA Foundation. In addition to this, purchases will also give the buying Professionals Clubs’ points to be entered in a larger contest.
Tournament Solutions has been a partner of the New England PGA since the early 2000s. Although they are a national company, they recognize the importance of giving back “locally”.
“We are very excited about launching “Tournament Solutions Fore the Foundation” initiative, with the PGA Section in which our business resides,” said John Lawrence, Managing Partner, Tournament Solutions. “It is in our opinion that the three pillars of the NEPGA Golf Foundation (Youth, Military and Diversity & Inclusion) are very worthy of a program such as this. What we love about this initiative is that it forms a truly unique partnership between Tournament Solutions and New England PGA Professionals (and their facilities) in that 10% of all their purchases with us will be donated back to the NEPGA Foundation in the name of their club. Knowing many of the NEPGA professionals personally, we are aware that the NEPGA Golf Foundation is extremely important to them.”
