IS ALSO SO MUCH FROM HER WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHERE THE PROCEEDS ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO GO BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO BE DOING SOME PRETTY INCREDIBLE THINGS. YES . PROCEEDS GET SPLIT WITH THIS PARTICULAR AND BETWEEN THE DAVIS THOMAS FOUNDATION AND THE AGE AGA GRANT. THOSE ARE 501(C)(3) TOURNAMENTS. I’M SORRY SEE THREE ORGANIZATIONS. BOTH GO BACK TO THE JUNIOR GOLFERS AND TO THE COMMUNITY. THE DAVIS THOMAS FOUNDATION AS MOST PEOPLE KNOW GO BACK TO THE COMMUNITY TO VARIOUS CHARITIES GIVING BACK TO UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS, ABUSED KIDS. LAST YEAR OR I’M SORRY 2003 WHEN DAVID AND SONJA FOUND THAT THEY HAVE GIVEN I BELIEVE OVER $3.6 MILLION BACK TO CHARITIES. HELPING THOSE THROUGH GOLF GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO HELP WITH THEIR SELF-ESTEEM AND TO HELP WITH THEIR GET AN OUTLET FEATURE GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO DO. AT THE EAST GRANT PROGRAM IT IS SOMETHING THE AGE AGA DOES TO HELP WITH JUNIOR OFFICER HAVE THIS GO TO PLAY, BUT MAY NEED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PLAYING THE SPORT. TO HELP THEM SO THEY CAN PURSUE THEIR GOALS TO PLAY COLLEGE GOLF. YES I KNOW THE SPORT CAN GET A LITTLE EXPENSIVE GOING TO TURN IT CAN COST MORE THAN $300 TO ATTEND. YES. THAT IS JUST TO PLAY FOR THE TOURNAMENT ITSELF. NOT TO MENTION JUST LODGING, TRAVEL EXPENSES. WHAT THEY DO IS THEY AWARD THESE ACE GRANTS SCHOLARSHIPS YOU MIGHT SAY. TWO PLAYERS THAT MIGHT NEED THEM. SO IN RETURN THESE PLAYERS ARE ALLOWED OR THEY CAN GO PLAY THESE TOURNAMENTS. IT IS A GREAT’S ENDOWMENTS, GREAT PROGRAM THAT THEY HAVE PRODUCED JUNIOR GOLFERS. THEY ESTABLISH THIS IS GRANT PROGRAM IN 2003 AND SINCE THEN THEY HAD GIVEN I THINK $3.6 MILLION AND THEY HAVE BEEN, THOSE GOLFERS FROM THE LAST I HEARD $14.9 MILLION THEY BEEN AWARDED IN SCHOLARSHIPS. SINCE THEY PLAYED BE GIVEN THE ACE GRANTS.IT’S REALLY PAID OFF WITH THESE JUNIOR GOLFERS. ANOTHER THING YOU BEEN TELLING ME EARLIER IS AMOUNT OF KIDS THAT WERE ABLE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY AND ATTEND COLLEGE LATER ON REALLY SETTING THEMSELVES UP FOR A GREAT FUTURE. ABSOLUTELY. 99 PERCENT IS A RETURN RATE. I SHOULD SAY 99 PERCENT THEY SAY KIDS TO GO THROUGH THE AGE AGA PROGRAM MAY NOT ALL PLAY GOLF WHENEVER THEY GO OFF TO COLLEGE BUT THEY DO GO TO COLLEGE STRAIGHT FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
