FATHER’S DAY GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Trust us. Dad doesn’t need a new tie. This year’s best Father’s Day gifts combine something he’s sure to enjoy with a contribution to charity. Because nobody gives support like a dad. These golf gifts score on both accounts.
AHEAD: The golf industry’s leader in quality and creative headwear, AHEAD, and its longtime partner Nicklaus Companies, are offering a limited edition “Bear Cares” hat to support the United Way.
A portion of the proceeds from each sale will provide rapid emergency assistance to individuals impacted by lost wages, closure of schools, day care centers and non-essential business in the area where AHEAD is headquartered.
Royal Albartross: The bespoke London-based luxury-goods company, which offers unique products that move easily from golf to life, will donate 10 percent of all online sales through May 31 to ClubsHELP. This 501(c)3 foundation has been created to connect U.S. golf clubs with hospitals and emergency services in their local areas to provide critically needed support for health workers as they care for victims of the pandemic.
“Mr. Wizard”: The debut novel by Jeff Wallach follows two brothers who learn that their supposed father is not who they thought. The brothers go on a genetic treasure hunt, following clues that may or may not have been left by their mother. The book features plenty of scenes at golf courses and clubs in both New York and Ireland.
Fifty cents from the sale of each book through June 21, 2020 will benefit The Pixie Project, a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue organization.
Sideways 9: This casual golf apparel company takes a fun approach to the game. Created by PGA Professional Chad Maveus, the line is derived from a true player’s perspective, with a bit of sarcasm and wit sprinkled in, which all golfers will truly appreciate. Sideways 9 will donate 10 percent of all online sales from June 1 to June 30, 2020 to the Folds of Honor Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.
