This event continues to our most popular, fun & biggest fundraiser of the year, as well as one of the best run charity tournaments in Delaware. Donations we have received over the 19 years of hosting the Mayor’s Cup has helped us grow and serve over 24,000 kids & teens in the State of Delaware and surrounding Maryland counties.
Underlying our mission is a strong focus to engage kids and teens in underserved communities to provide them the opportunity to experience a sport that they can enjoy for a lifetime. Through the funds we raise – we have the ability to never turn away a child who would like to participate in the Life Skills Experience on-the-Golf Course Program. It is all about Building Strength of Character and reinforcing Core Values that allow children access to powerful person growth!
This year we have added multiple YOUTH SPONSORSHIP LEVELS that offer you the opportunity to pay it forward to the community and make a difference in a young person’s life:
  • Platinum/Life Skills Site Sponsorship for $7000 – This level of sponsorship will include 1 foursome, name on signage with all other Life Skills Site Sponsors, Ad on Mayors Cup website as well as signage at the Site you are sponsoring for the 2022 Life Skills Site Year. This sponsorship will provide 10 participants the opportunity to participate in our Life Skills Experience on-the-Course at no charge for the 2022 calendar year. Each site hosts 4 to 6 classes per session, and we offer 4 sessions per calendar year. Not all sites hold classes for all 4 sessions, but class times vary to keep the instruction time very similar.
