Golf Mania Fundraiser
Jul 28 – Nov 15 all-day

First Tee of Howard County is once again selling Charity Mania golf sweepstakes tickets for 2020 — a great opportunity to sharpen your focus on the four golf majors*, support our area’s premier youth development organization, and have the chance to win cash prizes!

  • PGA Championship August 6-9, 2020
  • U.S. Open: September 17-20, 2020
  • The Masters: November 12-15, 2020

This is “Fantasy Golf” without the work and commitment, for a great cause!

Tickets can be purchased online, or by calling us at 410-730-1114 or emailing thefirsttee@columbiaassociation.org. We had about 15 winners last year from $25 to $200. 

These tickets also come with absolutely free music downloads for up and coming artists.
So jump on in! And yes, if you delay until after the PGA Championship cutoff (days before the tournament) your $20 ticket will be good for the next majors, so greatest value goes to the early purchasers!
Details of Charity Mania Fantasy Golf Sweepstakes

*Unfortunately, the 2020 British Open was cancelled due to COVID-19. GolfMania will use scores from a replacement tournament (The Masters) to calculate winners.  Therefore, when the Masters is played, GolfMania will calculate winners for both the British Open and the Masters contests at the same time, but independent of each other. 

The golfers assigned to the British Open on all GolfMania game cards will be awarded scores from their performance in The Masters on November 12-15.  The odds of winning and calculation of winners will be the same as if the British Open had been played.  The winners for this contest will simply be based on the golfers’ scores from The Masters instead.
“Golf Trip of a Lifetime” Raffle (Pebble Beach or Pinehurst)
Sep 21 – Dec 7 all-day


Each year, First Tee-Howard County hosts three major fundraisers to raise the money necessary to continue offering our high-quality youth programming at a low cost that makes it affordable to families from all income levels. This year, our in-person fundraisers (Taste for First Tee and Annual Golf Tournament) had to be cancelled due to COVID, but our operating costs remain. We hope that you will consider supporting our one major fundraiser this year, the “Golf Trip of a Lifetime” Raffle (winner chooses a trip to play at Pebble Beach in California OR Pinehurst Golf Course in North Caroline) and Online Auction.

Get more details and purchase your raffle tickets now. Winners will be announced on December 7!

Thank you to Roberts Oxygen and Sandy Spring Bank for generously sponsoring our Raffle and Auction this year.

Online Auction coming soon.
