($13,000 US) or more (including event registration fee) will join Ernie Els at the series finale in West Palm Beach on October 12-15.
After registration, each team is provided with online tools to create a personalized Team Fundraising Page to help secure online donations. Ernie Els will award ‘The Els Cup’ to the highest fundraising team from the series at the Grand Finale in West Palm Beach.
