Golf for a Cause!

July 29 - August 4, 2019 

A message from Trish Gregovich of the PGA Tour and Jim Deitch of Teraverde Financial

What a year! In 2018, the MBA Opens Doors Foundation partnered with Ellie Mae and the PGA TOUR to become the beneficiary of the Ellie Mae Classic Community Pro Am, sponsored by HousingWire. Our goal was modest, but it turns out the mortgage industry loves to bring their a-game to a Pro Am. After a great day at TPC Stonebrae, Opens Doors was the proud recipient of a $40,000 contribution that will help families caring for critically ill or injured children stay in their homes! 

In 2019 we’re upping our game and we invite you to join us at the Gold, Silver or Bronze sponsorship level. Click here to find out what each sponsorship level offers.

Join Ellie Mae, the PGA TOUR, HousingWire and the real estate finance industry, and golf for a cause! You’ll mingle with Bay Area sports superstars and players poised to dominate the PGA TOUR in the years to come. Tony Finau, Cameron Champ, Stephen Jaeger, Si Woo Kim and Justin Thomas are all alumni of the Ellie Mae Classic. Join your peers and be a part of the narrative celebrating the next wave of PGA TOUR talent while supporting the Opens Doors Foundation.

Golf not your thing? This year, in conjunction with the Ellie Mae Classic Community Pro Am, we’ll host an exclusive dinner at Wente Vineyards – “Lift a Glass, Raise a Roof”- preceded by a rare wine tasting for our Gold Sponsors and those with an affinity for fine grapes. We’ll auction off some of Wine Spectator’s top wines from California, the Loire and Rhone Valleys, the Italian countryside and the high summits of Argentina.

Best of all, you’ll be helping families with critically ill or injured children stay in their homes during a time of unimaginable hardship. Every dollar raised from the golf tournament to the wine dinner and rare wine tasting goes to support a family in need. So, as you do your 2019 budget planning, consider joining your industry peers and support the Ellie Mae Classic Community Pro Am and the delectable “Lift a Glass, Raise a Roof” Wine event.

Interested?  Hope so. Check back in January for additional details. Happiest of holidays from our family to yours.
