Golf-themed Promotional Giveaways Drive Tournament Donations for the Mission Viejo High School Diablos Football Team
Challenge: To find interest-generating, golf-related promotional products for tournament giveaways.
Need to raise money, awareness and publicity fast? Consider the golf tournament, a fundraiser that promises to quickly generate significant revenue and community awareness over traditional fundraising alternatives typically held over weeks or months. The Mission Viejo High School Diablos football team experienced their first tournament-fundraiser success last year: thus this year’s 2nd Annual Diablo Classic Golf Tournament, a day of golf on what’s known as one of the finest courses in California’s South Orange County, plus lunch, dinner and opportunities to win hole-in-one prizes and on-course contests—not to mention opportunities to receive free Diablos’-branded, golf-related promotional gifts. Funds raised in the 2nd Annual event would pay for new training and safety equipment, skills development and facilities improvements.
Solution: A branded golfer’s gift-pack including shoe bag, divot fixer and tee pouch.
And because no golf tournament is complete without “thank you” gifts that encourage golfers to golf and donors to donate, members of the Diablos’ tournament planning team contacted ePromos in search of appropriate giveaway promotional products. The team, working with Promotions Specialist Brent Mittleman, selected several promotional products that together, once branded, made for a perfect Diablos’ golf package:
• A promotional shoe bag with padding, vents and an exterior zippered pocket
• A handsome logoed divot fixer
• And a logoed tee pouch with a club-shaped zipper pull, ready to affix to a golf bag and large enough to hold tees for a full round of play
Result: Diablos exceed fundraising expectations and stay on golfers’ minds year-round.
The fundraising team tells us that tournament participants and donors alike enjoyed the promotional, branded gifts, which helps keep the Diablos’ top-of-mind even after football season ends. The team also reports that the tournament itself was reason for cheer, as the team exceeded their fundraising expectations, raising enough money to cover the season’s expenses—and then some.
