A golf scramble fund raising event is fun!


In only their 2nd year, the KDA golf scramble committee in Houston has surpassed $32,000 in donations to KDA. The golf scramble is a fun-filled day for all participants and very rewarding for the KDA. The committee has developed a step-by-step process to insure your success.

Golf is one of the fastest growing sports and can be played and enjoyed by the young and old alike. It is a natural way to engage friends and family to come together to support the KDA.

Here is how to hold your own fund raising event

It is not as hard as you might think. The golf scramble team has held two very successful tournaments.  They have documented the steps and action items necessary for you to conduct a Kennedy’s Disease golf scramble in your town.

In addition to being able to provide some guidance, the team can also help support your fund raiser with examples of the following tools and event items:

  • A financial tracking program
  • Forms needed
  • Brochures
  • Web design for online signups and general information

A member of the Houston committee will walk you through every step to ensure you have a successful event.
