The 26th Annual Golf for Joy was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. This was a difficult decision to make but we knew it was in everyone's best interest not to have a large gathering. This was the first time in 26 years that we could not have an in-person gathering, but we did not let that stop us from raising funds to support children with challenges who are still in need during these difficult times.
For 2020, we planned a special event that we're calling Virtual Joy. The Annual Masters Golf Tournament, typically played in April, was postponed due to COVID-19 which gives us an opportunity to continue with the theme of our usual fun golf outing that we missed out on this year. We have planned a virtual event based around the Masters Tournament, now scheduled for November 12 – 15, 2020. Here’s how it will work: Make a donation / registration fee of $30. Anyone who donates $30 by noon on Wednesday, November 8th will be in a random drawing to be “paired up” with a golfer playing in the Masters. Then all you have to do is sit back, watch some great golf and cheer on your player. If the golfer you’re paired with wins the Masters, you win Virtual Joy! The winner of Virtual Joy 2020 will receive an engraved Championship Mug. Multiple entries are allowed - for every $30 you donate, you will get a golfer along with 10 raffle tickets.
Individual raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 each, or an “arm’s length” (20 tickets) for $10, or a “wingspan” (50 tickets) for $20. We will write your names on the tickets and put them in the raffle drum in preparation of the raffle drawing. Raffle prizes consist of gift cards, gift certificates, etc., contributed by our generous corporate sponsors. Raffle drawing will take place on Sunday, November 15. Raffle winners will be notified and prizes will be delivered after the tournament has concluded.
MJB Foundation is not responsible for Masters’ schedule changes due to inclement weather, pandemic closures or acts of nature, and holds no responsibility for golfers’ actions including withdrawing from the tournament, or otherwise failing to finish. If your golfer is no longer participating due to illness, not making the cut, disqualification, etc., you are out of the running for winning Virtual Joy.
You can register to take part in the event here.
You can follow along with the event on our Facebook event page.
