Due to the excitement of The Masters Tournament over this past weekend we have had many inquiries requesting us to extend our 2021 Virtual Guest Bartender Event. We would like to give all of those who are interested more chances to participate and help us grow the funding to Build Game Changers and know in the end, that this will help us to continue our programming in 2021 and beyond.  

Vote for Guest Bartenders, Bid on Silent Auction Items, Purchase 50/50 Raffle Tickets, Sponsor an Ad on the Homepage or Make a Direct Donation ALL-IN-ONE-PLACE. What a great opportunity to reach out to your friends and family – here, there, and everywhere.

First Tee – Delaware enables kids and teens to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges by seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills. We provide active learning experiences that develop inner strength, self-confidence and resilience that kids can carry into everything they set out to accomplish

Please make sure to LOOK at the Silent Auction Items for 2021 –
We have several PREMIUM items up for bidding. 

One of those items is titled “Stories from the Locker Room”
by a Phillie Phanatic and a Philadelphia Eagle.

Here is a link to Dave Raymon’s Book – “The Power of Fun”https://daveraymond.bigcartel.com/product/the-power-of-fun-paperback

From 1978, when he first pulled on the green fur, until he left the Philadelphia Phillies in 1994, Dave Raymond redefined the world of live character performance as the original Phillie Phanatic. Throughout his career working with some of the world’s leading brands, he designed and refined the same process that began creating a multimillion-dollar brand extension for his favorite baseball team. Along the way, his design thinking process helped Dave to get through some of the hardest times of his life. In his book, The Power of Fun, Dave shares the best stories from his performance career, and outlines a simple model – a theory about fun – that can change your life.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Interested in bulk orders? Contact us for pricing and details.
