Team Go Gemma Go

A First for Gemma, and Right on Course.

Gemma is a shining example of the First Tee mission to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. We believe all young people should have access to safe places and caring adult mentors, who help them grow socially, emotionally and academically. 

Your donation will help:

Sponsor a child or teen in need of First Tee classes

Provide class equipment and supplies, plus a discounted cost of classes that's less than 25% of their actual cost

Deliver our program to elementary schools + after school programs where students lack transportation

Award three college scholarships worth $2,000 each to high school seniors in our program

Provide low cost family events

Provide outreach opportunities in the community for youth to take a swing at golf

Provide transportation to green grass facilities for participants in need

Take Your Best Swing for Team Go Gemma Go

There's no challenge too big for Gemma Guion. Gemma has been playing golf with the First Tee since she was just 4 years old. Five years later, her favorite part about being in First Tee – Coachella Valley is learning about its Core Values through the game of golf. Gemma will be playing her FIRST full round of 18 holes on December 5 for all to cheer at our Golf-A-Thon! 

Show Gemma what drives you, as Team Go Gemma Go leads the charge in serving Coachella Valley youth. Is it your lucky head cover, your cool and custom cart or something you've always wanted to share with the world?

Picture this. This video/photo challenge is for all golf fans and friends! Let’s have fun, get creative, and show support for Gemma by taking a swing at this family fun contest. It’s as easy as:

• Uploading a 30-second video selfie (or photo) to meet the challenge of Team Go Gemma Go. This creates your personal, custom link to share with your friends, family and peers.

• Sharing on social media from your smartphone, tablet or computer.

• Tagging at least five others to accept your challenge and donate. Tag #TeamGoGemmaGo.

• Donating what you can, and inspiring others to contribute to help your team's standings. 

• Not a social media fan or follower? Simply copy this team’s page link, and forward it from your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Reminder: In less than five minutes, you can make a difference in the lives of someone, who could be a friend in need to your own child.
