Payne Stewart Kids Golf Partnership Helps With Auction Donations

Payne National Golf Fun Event

The Payne Stewart Kids Golf Foundation will be increasing its fundraising activities during the month of September with a national online auction through a new partnership with OneSpare and TravelPledge.

OneSpare is a free donation management platform for golf courses that helps streamline donation requests, promote golf courses, and receive outings and private event leads.  They are assisting in requests and managing donated golf foursomes and stay and play packages from golf courses and resorts.  And TravelPledge is the platform that will set up and run the Payne Stewart Kids Golf Foundation auction that starts on September 16 at 8:00 am CDT and runs through September 30 at 8:00 pm CDT by taking bids and managing the fulfillment process.

“We’re delighted that OneSpare can support the Payne Stewart Kids Golf Foundation by helping gather foursomes from generous golf courses all across the country and honored that the Foundation has selected TravelPledgeAuctions.com to host their national online auction,” said Mike Last, Founder and CEO of Geronimo Solutions LLC.

The list of auction items is expanding daily and people are encouraged to visit:  https://www.paynestewart.org/2021-national-golf-tournament/auction to bid on packages starting on September 16.

“To date, more than 350 golf packages from 46 states have been put up for auction,” said Kelly McCammon, CEO and Founder of the Payne Stewart Kids Golf Foundation.  “We also have 15 international golf vacations including St. Andrews, Scotland, a vacation experience at a Tuscan Villa in Italy, a private mansion in Alaska, and a private yacht excursion in Portugal and Spain.  We are amazed by the generosity of resorts, courses, and private benefactors who are helping us raise the necessary funds to expand the footprint of the Payne Stewart mission of bringing golf to underserved communities. We could not have done this without the help of Geronimo Solutions, the parent company of OneSpare and TravelPledge.”
