SYRACUSE — The Thompson Brothers will hold their second annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, October 1, at the Bellevue Country Club in Syracuse, NY. The anticipated fund-raising event will support the mission of the Thompsons’ 4 The Future Foundation.
In 2020 the four Thompson Brothers, Lyle, Jeremy, Hiana and Miles launched the 4 The Future Foundation (4TFF) where sports meets culture, a charitable organization with a mission to share the roots and values of the Creators game of Lacrosse with diverse communities through programming that inspires and encourages health and wellness, education, youth leadership and honouring the natural world. Some programs that are put together by the 4TFF includes stick and equipment grants, lacrosse clinics, programs and more. The Thompson Brothers hope that 4TFF will be a way to give back to both Indigenous and underserved youth, their communities and to the future generations to come. The annual golf tournament is a fun way to support a good cause that will help to inspire and lead youth through the game of Lacrosse and more.
Last year the tournament hosted 112 golfers with an additional 50 people joining in the celebration. There was a silent auction with many Thompson-themed items to bid on and entertainment by the fabulous Ripcords. This year the Foundation hopes to fill the course with 144 golfers for an 18-hole scramble with cash prizes for the top two foursomes.
“We’re excited to build off the success of not only our inaugural golf outing but the work that the Thompsons are doing in communities around the country to lift young people through the power of lacrosse,” said Scott Marr, who is also the Event Chair. “The golf outing gives us an opportunity to spread our message and enjoy the day with new and old friends.”
Nike prizes will be awarded for men’s and women’s longest drive, closest to pin and best dressed foursome. All golfers will receive a gift bag with polo, hat, golf balls and more. UAlbany Coach Scott Marr will again serve as the event chair and the Ripcords will be back to perform after the dinner buffet.
Participantes that join in this October will be able to meet the Thompson brothers and other Lacrosse players while supporting a cause that allows our youth, communities and future generations the opportunity to unearth their courage and passions to achieve their dreams.
