Those staying in hotels in Monterey CA in February can attend the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in Pebble Beach. The mission of the tournament is to stage a competition that brings the community together with global leaders in sports and entertainment to raise funds for charity. The 2012 tournament set a record by raising over $10 million for charity. Since the tournament’s inception in 1937, the Monterey Peninsula Foundation has raised over $100 million for charity.
The 2013 schedule has practice rounds on Monday, February 4 to Wednesday, February 6, with the rounds starting on Thursday, February 7. February 6 is also Military Day and Celebrity Challenge Day. Celebrities that will be participating this year include Carson Daly, Kenny G, Andy Garcia, Bill Murray, Ray Romano and Chris O’Donnell.
The Charity Shoot-Out will take place on Tuesday, February 7th between the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers. A total of $100,000 in charity contribution is at stake. The 49ers have all-stars Harris Burton & Dwight Clark, Jerry Rice & Brent Jones, and Alex Smith & Jim Harbaugh competing against Giants team Mike Krukow & Dave Flemming and Matt Cain & Will Clark. The fun begins at 1:30pm. Tickets are $30 until February 4 and $30 after with all proceeds going to charity.
Birdies for Charity is a program designed for charities to raise money through the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Communities take part in a pledge drive based on the number of birdies made by PGA TOUR professionals during the tournament. Donors will pledge an amount per birdie or a flat donation. 100% of pledges will go directly to the soliciting charity with an additional up to 20% match. Charities are also invited to compete to earn the opportunity to be represented by the San Francisco 49ers or Giants in the Charity Shoot-Out on February 5, and earn up to $50,000 additional funds. Donors can also be entered in a raffle to win the grand prize, which varies every year.
Be sure to make it out to see one of the rounds this year! Tickets are $50 before February 2 and $60 after. You can also by season passes here.
