Virtual Women’s Golf Day
Jack & Barbara Nicklaus join celebrities supporting event
Tune into www.womensgolfday.com on 2nd June for a day packed with exclusive entertainment and inspirational messages from across the world of golf. WGD raises much needed funds for Médecins sans Frontiers / Doctors without Borders (MSF) and their battle with COVID-19.
The day of celebration is free but there will be a whole host of incredible auction prizes to bid for. MSF supports healthcare workers battling this global pandemic in 70 countries which aligns strongly with the 52 countries which host Women’s Golf Day events.
A multitude of Major winners, including the greatest of all time - Jack Nicklaus - has contributed auction items and submitted videos that will be broadcast on the www.womensgolfday.com website throughout the day.
There will be golf tips, fitness and insider info from Tour players past and present and exclusive videos from household names like CBS’s Inside Edition’s Lisa Guerrero.
Elisa Gaudet, the founder of Women’s Golf Day, is grateful for the international support that the virtual celebration is receiving: “The industry is pulling together to make sure that 2nd June is still an incredible day. I am so pleased that our long-term supporters around the world have been able to offer amazing auction prizes and we are thankful to every celebrity, golfer and supporter of the game who has provided the content that will make 2nd June shine. We can’t wait to show the world what virtual Women’s Golf Day is all about!”
The WGD Charity Auction goes live on 28th May and concludes 2nd June midnight EST and will include ‘must have’ lots from Real Club Valderrama, Experience Ireland Golf and Travel and the World Golf Hall of Fame, as well as memorabilia from players including Annika Sorenstam & Jack Nicklaus. A full list of items and a schedule for the day will be revealed on 28th May.
Elisa concludes: “I have always believed that the power of golf is in its community and have been so impressed by the way it pulls together in times of crisis. We are raising funds for a very important charity and there is still time for businesses to donate auction items or experiences. We want people to celebrate the game we all love on 2nd June safely on our website and dig deep for the auction to show how much our community cares for our healthcare workers.”
