SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Lincoln Land Championship presented by LRS has launched ticket sales for the 2019 tournament scheduled for June 10 – 16 at Panther Creek Country Club.
General admission tickets are $10 per day, Thursday through Sunday and money raised from each general admission ticket sold online and at the gate will benefit nonprofit organizations involved in the tournament’s Charity Chip In program. This program allows selected 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit organizations the opportunity to raise much needed dollars via the sale of general admission tickets to the tournament as 100% of the proceeds from each general admission ticket via Charity Chip In will go to the organization that is designated by the purchaser during the buying transaction. The following organizations have been selected to participate in 2019; American Lung Association, Animal Protective League, CASA of the Tenth Judicial Circuit, Girls Scouts of Central Illinois, Central Illinois Foodbank, Girls on the Run of Central Illinois, Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County, Hope, Lincoln Land Down Syndrome Society, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“We are happy to bring back the Charity Chip in Program as it allows us to make an impact on a wide array of organizations. These groups can raise a limitless amount of money all with no cost or risk to the agency” said Executive Director, Kate Peters. “We know that organizations are always looking for ways to raise much-needed funding for their programs and we are happy to do our part to help”
