Antigua to Offer Merchandise that Benefits PGA HOPE’S Military Veteran Programs
August 16, 2019 by PGA WORKS
The Antigua Group, Inc. - leading designers and marketers of lifestyle apparel under the genuine Antigua brand - has entered into an agreement with PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America, to benefit our nation’s Veterans through sales of PGA HOPE apparel at green-grass facilities.
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities, to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. The six-to-eight week curriculum is taught by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military culture. All programming is funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA Section Foundations, and free to all Veterans.
The PGA HOPE-logoed apparel on Antigua-branded caps and shirts will be sold by PGA Professionals in green-grass locations. A portion of all sales will support PGA HOPE.
“We are proud that Antigua has teamed up with PGA REACH to support our efforts to enhance the lives of our military heroes through PGA HOPE,” said PGA REACH Senior Director Ryan Cannon. “PGA Professionals have the ability to sell PGA HOPE merchandise that is visually appealing for a tremendous cause.”
PGA HOPE also works with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA), which enables Recreational Therapists to refer Veterans to the program as a form of therapy.
“Antigua is proud to launch a very special program that benefits our nation’s Veterans through PGA HOPE,” said The Antigua Group President and CEO Ron McPherson. “As we support those who have given so much to our country through programs such as PGA HOPE, we’re delighted to work with PGA Professionals and the game of golf to make a positive impact.”
