We are thrilled to establish the Deacon Palmer Endowment Fund with The First Tee of Pittsburgh to enable children in The First Tee of Pittsburgh’s Life Skills Clinics to develop the same life-enhancing values through golf education that Milfred J. (Deacon) Palmer taught his son, Arnold Palmer. We made the announcement on Saturday during a luncheon at the Fox Chapel Golf Club during the third round of the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, which we are proud to sponsor.
The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship was held June 28-July 1 and for Constellation, the Championship is about more than great golf – it provides us a chance to strengthen our communities and demonstrate our commitment to protecting our environment. The establishment of the Deacon Palmer Endowment Fund is one of many ways that we are able to do that. The combination of the SENIOR PLAYERS Championship location and the Palmer family’s roots in western Pennsylvania made the establishment of the endowment on par.
Constellation also has a history of supporting The First Tee in the communities where Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS has been staged, and we are delighted to continue that tradition this year.
The Deacon Palmer Endowment Fund will allow participation in clinics for individual children from the community as well as groups such as schools, social service agencies and faith based groups. All fees, equipment, access and other costs of participation will be funded by the endowment.
In addition, the Deacon Palmer Endowment Fund may also be used to cover the cost of children’s participation in local, regional, national and international youth development and golf-related activities as well as funding for college and secondary education as deemed appropriate by The First Tee of Pittsburgh Scholarship Committee.
