There will be raffle tickets available for $110. There is a 99.99% chance that if you purchase a raffle ticket you will win a bottle of bourbon.
Raffle Tickets will be RED! SUPPLIES ARE LIMITED!

Other Interesting Facts?
1. I'm going to attempt to meet every team on the 9th and 18th holes and I will be an extra putter for the "first" putt. If I make the putt, and it qualifies for the "Longest Putt", someone on the team can put their name on the sign.

2. I'll be hitting two drives before the round starts on both the 1st and 10th hole.
I'll choose the best drive on each hole. There will be a marker in the fairway (assuming I hit it) that marks the location of my drive. Your team has a choice of hitting from my shot, or hitting one of your shots.

What else do you need to know?
You can see more information about me by clicking here. But I'm not here to make any money. This project of mine will cost money. Nothing is free. I'll get rounds donated, meals donated, etc. But not everything will be, and it costs money to run this project, this outing, swag, materials, etc.
Costs for the outing (food, rounds of golf, etc.) will need to be covered first. Any additional profits will be distributed 25% to Xabula Charities and 75% to St Judes.
If at any point, the 25% cut for Xabula Charities has paid for all the expenses for the golf outing and the 50 day golf project, then 100% of remaining money will be donated to St Judes.
Everything is and will be very transparent and will be able to be viewed by clicking here.
