Two legends of golf and their sons will take part in the nationally televised “3rd Annual Father’s Day Match for a Cause” raising thousands of dollars for Elevate Phoenix.
The one-hour taped special premieres at 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST on Father’s Day, June 19, 2022. Bally Sports Network will air the show with multiple re-broadcasts throughout the month.
The potential viewership is over 84 million households as DirectTV, DISH Satellite, Comcast, Hulu, SlingTV, PlayStation Vue, Match Play YouTube channel, Philo TV and fubo TV will also be broadcasting the special event.
Both sons have golf in their blood and Scottsdale resident Tom Lehman couldn’t have found a better opportunity to play with his son and raise money for his favorite charity at the same time.
All players are supporting Elevate Phoenix, a local non-profit providing 24/7 mentoring for at-risk youth.
“It is with great honor and excitement that my son Thomas and I get to team up together in the 3rd Annual Father’s Day Match for a Cause,” said Tom Lehman. “This year at The Westin Kierland Golf Club we will go toe-to-toe with long-time friend Lee Janzen and his son Connor. I’m also thrilled the Elevate Phoenix organization will serve as the sole benefactor of this special fundraiser. My heart has been a part of their mission for more than 12 years and the success of their students is a win for us all. We couldn’t have done this event without the support of Troon, Match Play TV and Versatile Golf; it’s a true team effort.”
Ray Adams, Tom Lehman and Jill Mann Strite.
Along with great golf action, the program features renowned Match Play TV and radio host Ray Adams along with LPGA Member/Versatile Golf owner Jill Mann Strite for on-course Q&A with the players.
The “3rd Annual Father’s Day Match for a Cause” is a two-person father/son 18-hole competition. Each competitor will play their own ball and the lowest score of the twosome is the team score. All Par 3s have designated sponsors hosting a closest to the pin competition for major bragging rights.
It’s because of supporters like Tom Lehman, Lee Janzen, Bally Sports & host Ray Adams’ generosity that we can continue to advance our mission of delivering long-term, life-changing relationships with our urban youth. Especially when our Teacher/Mentors were asked to provide above and beyond support during this past Covid school year, their investment helps us continue developing successful leaders of our future.
