Travelers Championship

June 20 - June 23

The Travelers Championship will be held June 20 – 23, 2019 at TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, CT 06416.

Arguably the best field of golfers short of a major (minus Tiger) will be playing  there this year.

There are also several fundraising tournaments and other activities starting weeks before the main event, beginning with the MahoneySabol 5K on April 27th and wrapping up on October 15th with the Birdies for the Brave Golf Tournament, with 11 other events in between.

If you are planning to attend the Travelers Championship, there are several ticket options to choose from, but we want to make you aware of one program that both saves you some money and also benefits local charities.

Travelers’ “Chip in for Charity” program allows you to save almost 40% on a general admission ticket and generate a $15 per ticket donation to a Connecticut charity. The Housatonic Valley Regional High School golf team is the registered charity within sportingAcause’s territory.

Here’s how you can save a bundle and help out a worthy cause: go to https://travelerschampionship.com/chip-in-for-charity/, click on ” Purchase Tickets”, click on “Chip in for Charity” in the “Enter Offer Code field type in “1STHOLE”, and then enter your ticket quantity, credit card info etc.

If you have any questions email HOUSY Golf Coach John McGuire at mcgrjohn2@gmail.com.

There is another program that the Travelers Championship offers that may be of interest to you.

The “Birdies For Charity” program allows nonprofits from around the Northeast United States to fundraise using the Travelers’ national platform to tell the charity’s story. In addition, Travelers will kick in an additional 15% of the charity’s fundraising efforts. There are presently 123 charities signed up for this program including Special Olympics of CT, Alzheimer’s Assoc. of CT, Operation Fuel, Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and many more. The nonprofit in sportingAcause’s territory is the Northwest CT Habitat for Humanity.
