The tournament itself was put together by Randy Drescher and Jeff Karl. They wanted to figure out a way to raise money for St. Jude Hospital and to support the great work that the hospital does. And while they wanted to incorporate their favorite sport of disc golf, they really wanted the fundraising event to be something more than just that. Randy and Jeff hope that between the donations, auctions, clinics, and tournament, that they will be able to give a little back to St. Jude for all the great work that they do.
Randy has this to say about the event:
“The Team Cup Challenge is an event that came to me as the perfect opportunity to show the people of the Memphis Area what our disc golf family can do, when charged with helping one of the greatest charities possible. Being part of a very large family filled with children of all ages, the importance of helping children, with life threatening diseases, and their families, is something very dear to my heart.”
The tournament date is September 29th – 30th. If you are in the Memphis area, or plan to be around during that time, DGA encourages you to sign up and help support this amazing cause.
