- Buy tickets to the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, which is being held at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco in early November.
- The tournament will feature legendary, Champions Tour golfers Tom Watson, Fred Couples, Tom Lehman, and many more.
- Tickets cost $25. But 75% ($18.75) of every ticket you buy will go to the San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation!

Now here is the full story:
From November 2-6th, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship –the final event of the Champions TOUR — will be taking place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. The event will feature all the best Champions Tour golfers including Tom Watson, Tom Lehman, Fred Couples, Mark O’Meara, and many more.
Even better, 100% of ticket sales from the event go to charity, with 25% of the net proceeds going to “First Tee of San Francisco” (the PGA TOUR’s main beneficiary) and 75% of the net proceeds going to the charity the ticket buyer chooses (from the an approved list of charities). And the San Mateo Foster City Education Foundation is on that approved list!
This means that $18.75 of every ticket sold (tickets are $25 a piece) will go to support the Education Foundation and music in the schools (the Foundation’s main program for the coming year), as long as ticket buyers specify the San Mateo Foster City Education Foundation as their charity of choice.
The easiest way to buy tickets and support the foundation is simply to use the following link (which automatically selects the Education Foundation as your charity of choice):
Alternatively, if you end up on the Schwab Cup website directly, make sure to choose “San Mateo Foster City Education Foundation” from the drop down list of charities.
And the opportunity doesn’t end with the just the $18.75 from each ticket. There are also prizes to further encourage participation. If the Foundation is among the top three ticket sellers, the Schwab Foundation will also donate additional money to the Education Foundation ($12,000 if we’re number one!).
So bring and your kids to a real golf tournament and encourage the golf fans you know to buy tickets. This tournament really is an amazing opportunity to have a great time watching PGA tour golf in San Francisco, while simultaneously raising money to support the Education Foundation and San Mateo-Foster City schools. It’s a real hole in one!
