PGA TOUR Superstore Announces Grants To Bay Area Chapters Of The First Tee

EAST PALO ALTO, Calif., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PGA TOUR Superstore has announced a $5,000 grant to The First Tee of Silicon Valley and a $5,000 grant to The First Tee of San Francisco to deliver educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.

PGA TOUR Superstore is presenting the awards today as part of its Friends and Family Grand Opening event at the new store. The 47,000-square-foot superstore is located at 1751 East Bayshore Road, former site of Best Buy. Young people from The First Tee of Silicon Valley and The First Tee of San Francisco will participate in the event, and the public is invited to attend.

"The First Tee transforms the lives of young people through character education and the Nine Core Values," said PGA TOUR Superstore President and CEO Dick Sullivan. "We are excited to team up with The First Tee of Silicon Valley and The First Tee of San Francisco to expand opportunities for young people."

The First Tee chapters of Silicon Valley and San Francisco conduct programs in the schools and during after-school, weekend and summer periods for more than 12,000 young people annually, including 75 area elementary schools enrolled in The First Tee National School Program.

East Palo Alto is PGA TOUR Superstore's 16th retail location. The superstores are owned and operated by Golf & Tennis Pro Shop, Inc., whose controlling owner and chairman is Arthur M. Blank, retired Home Depot co-founder and owner of the Atlanta Falcons. Blank became a Trustee of The First Tee in January 2012, committing $1 million to the youth development organization.

In partnership with The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, PGA TOUR Superstore associates support The First Tee chapters reaching young people in East Palo Alto, Atlanta, Chicago, Paramus, Dallas, Delray Beach, Denver, Myrtle Beach, Naples and Phoenix. PGA TOUR Superstore has announced that it will open a store in Irvine, California, later this year.

In addition to grants, PGA TOUR Superstore provides young people with access to state-of-the-art teaching, club fitting and training.
