DELRAY BEACH, Sept. 10, 2014 – Tickets will go on sale September 15, for the 2014 Walgreens Charity Championship presented by The Seagate Country Club.
The Legends Tour tournament, set for Nov. 6-9, will feature 48 LPGA Tour Legends competing in a two-day event on the official senior tour of the LPGA. The championship will be hosted by The Seagate Country Club in Delray Beach, Fla.
Tickets will go on sale next week at all Walgreens stores in the state of Florida. Patrons can save $5 per ticket by purchasing tickets in advance in more than 260 Walgreens stores located throughout the Sunshine State.
Advance tickets are only available at Walgreens stores at $10 per day per adult. Full-price tickets at the gate are $15 each day. Kids under 17 accompanied by an adult and military personnel with IDs will be granted free admission at the main gate on tournament days.
“We are excited to offer a convenient and affordable way for golf fans across the region to purchase tickets and save $5 by visiting our Walgreens locations,” said Roy Ripak, Walgreens Market Vice President. “This event provides key funding to local charities, while treating fans to some pretty spectacular golf from the LPGA Legends.”
Ticket proceeds will support three local charities: The Dan Marino Foundation (DMF), Achievement Centers for Children & Families (ACCF), and Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (ADVA). The event will also support and raise awareness for Seagate’s charity partner, Habitat for Humanity.
Donations for these official charity partners will also be accepted at admission gates. Representatives from each charity will be on site to provide information and materials about their missions and work in the surrounding community.
In addition to being able to watch LPGA Hall of Famers, such as Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley and South Florida resident Beth Daniel, golf fans attending the championship will also have access to the Walgreens Healthy Living Expo, as well as the Steps With Balance Rewards On-Course Walk.
The Expo includes Walgreens vendor partners and local area business exhibitors providing product giveaways, information and special offers from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8 and Sunday, Nov. 9. A mobile clinic offering free skin care and health screenings will also be held on site.
The On-Course Walk is open to all fans purchasing tickets and will start on the back nine holes at 10:30 a.m. during each tournament round. Walkers follow a specified walking route and visit several checkpoints along the way while being able to watch the on-course golf action. Participants who complete all checkpoints during the walk earn a free Legends Tour-branded prize at the finish line, located in The Legends Tour merchandise tent.
