Monday, March 7, 2022 – On March 7th, First Tee Greater Wilmington hosted our 4th Annual Brigade Golf ParTee at Brigade Boys & Girls Club with the help of some wonderful volunteers from LiveOak Bank. Over 150 youth were in attendance, learning the basics of the golf swing and core values through a fun lineup of stations. The kids were able to experience a putting driving range in the gym, chipping marshmallows at targets, hitting full swings out into the big field, and playing golf with other sports equipment to learn distance control, how to set up, balance, and following through with their swing. And of course, no after-school event is complete without a little snack break station and pop-up photo booth. It truly was a blast, despite the 20+mph winds! We look forward to being out at Brigade Boys and Girls Club more in the future to continue having fun and growing our outreach in the community. We’d like to thank the Brigade staff for helping us pull off this event as well as Sheally Insurance for providing all the participants with an awesome Golf ParTee t-shirt! A true example of a community coming together to help make a positive impact on our youth!
