The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is proud to announce the start of a new foundation. The Hurricane Foundation will provide junior golfers who are in need of assistance financially with entry and travel expenses for Hurricane Junior Golf Tour events. Through the Foundation the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour will fulfill its mission of preparing young men and women for success in college golf. "The HJGT foundation is one of the biggest accomplishments we have made here in the 7 years of our existence,” says Executive Director Mario Conte. “This foundation is very special to us and has been a major focus for us the last couple years and we have finally been able to launch this initiative. Being able to grow the game of golf while helping young men and women accomplish their goals is what the HJGT is all about" Designed with the vision to help junior golfers achieve success in high school, college and life, the Hurricane Foundation will work with inner-city youth organizations to promote the sport of golf. By assisting inner-city youth and others in need we hope to encourage skills and developmental experiences that will positively impact their future. The Hurricane Foundation will be funded by contributions and fundraising programs. These contributions will make an immediate impact in the lives of junior golfers by the way of playing opportunities in HJGT events through the Tournament Assistance program. Tournament Assistance will be available for junior golfers who are in need of financial support to compete at the national level. Participants who meet the eligibility requirements will receive assistance in entry fees as well as travel costs for HJGT competitions.
