Champ Spikes sent me this email about their Breast Cancer Research Foundation fundraiser:
CHAMP Spikes has expanded its highly successful Pink on the Links program for 2008 by adding an eBay charity auction and increasing player participation across all tours. Pros will be asked to wear CHAMP’s commemorative pink and white spikes during Mother’s Day weekend tournaments across the globe and CHAMP will make a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) on their behalf.
The Pink on the Links program also includes a charity eBay auction which is new for 2008 where items up for bid include:
– Autographed shoes from Tiger Woods
– Autographed shoes from Lorena Ochoa
– Autographed shoes from Padraig Harrington
– An autographed golf bag from Paul Casey
– Autographed shoes from Se Ri Pak
– Golf foursome with winner’s choice of FUTURES Tour player (conditions apply)
In addition to CHAMP’s donation on behalf of Tour players wearing the pink and white spikes, 100% of proceeds from the Pink on the Links auction
items will benefit the BCRF. Please visit the auction through the CHAMP website, http://www.champspikes.com or directly at http://www.stores.ebay.com/pinkonthelinks, starting May 10th. The auction runs until May 20th.
Maybe Champs will send me some pink spikes for my Eccos. Then I can tell my wife that I absolutely HAVE to go to the course on Mother’s day to show my support for the cause.
