BOSTON, Massachusetts – A total of 20 First Tee Massachusetts participants were invited to Fenway Park on November 3rd to hit golf balls with Top Golf. The night out for the kids was made possible by the PGA Tour and Make Golf Your Thing.
“This was such an incredible and unique experience that I know the kids will remember for the rest of their life, I know I will.” said Kyle Harris, Director of Operations for First Tee Massachusetts.
Participants of all skill levels from ages 7 to 14 were able to enjoy this experience, including some of our coaches and volunteers.
Boston’s Franklin Park Par level participant, Finnbar Starosky, stated “I thought it was really cool, I hadn’t been to Fenway Park that often so that was really cool with the bright lights and just such an awesome experience.”
The Make Golf Your Thing initiative is made possible by the PGA Tour. The PGA Tour has been so incredibly supportive of First Tee both at the national level and local level and we are truly thankful. They believe in our life skills curriculum program and creating opportunities that our kids wouldn’t normally have. Being here at Fenway Park, creating experiences, and building character with our kids is wonderful and we can’t thank the PGA Tour enough.
Angelina Camacho, a First Tee parent and long-time supporter of First Tee Massachusetts, said “Experiences like this give our young people access in a way they may not feel they have otherwise. To be here at the iconic Fenway Park with Top Golf, it really expands opportunities for our young people and allows them to see where golf can really take them.”
First Tee of Massachusetts continues to grow and teach children across the state with plans to open two to three more locations in 2022. The work done by First Tee would not be made possible without experiences like this one, our coaches and volunteers.
