PGA REACH Carolinas Event Management

Harvick4Heroes PGA REACH Carolinas Pro-Am – $225,000 raised in two years through a high-end celebrity-affiliated pro-am combined with silent, live, and online auctions.

Online Auction – The 2020 Harvick4Heroes PGA REACH Pro-Am could not take place due to COVID-19. However, we still put on a large online auction and raised $33,000 for PGA REACH Carolinas and the Kevin Harvick Foundation.

100 Holes for HOPE – In our inaugural year, we raised $50,000 for PGA HOPE. This was not necessarily a one-day marathon, which allowed for more relaxed participation.

PGA REACH Carolinas HOPE Cup – The Carolinas Foundation hosts veterans from the thirteen HOPE Chapters across the Section for this championship style event. Four veterans team up with their program Lead Professional to compete and earn a spot in the national Secretary’s Cup.
