In addition to bringing exceptional golf back to the Washington, D.C., area, the 2012 AT&T National will also make a huge impact on the community through its charitable endeavors. The tournament will work to raise funds and awareness for the college-access programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation, focusing on the two Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses in Washington as well as the 25 Earl Woods Scholars who hail from the D.C. area.
In the fall of 2010, the Foundation launched two TWLC campuses in Washington (TWLC-DC). The TWLC-DC campuses are located at the Cesar Chavez Public Charter School in Ward 6 and the Cesar Chavez Public Charter School in Ward 7. The TWLC-DC spaces and curriculum are custom-built for the young people in those communities, providing thousands of students access to innovative educational programs and the latest technology.
Once students are ready for college, we offer the Earl Woods Scholarship Program -- an incredible support network that includes admissions counseling, dedicated mentors, specialized internships, financial assistance and workshops. The Foundation currently has 70 scholars enrolled in the program, and 25 are from the D.C. area.
The AT&T National is once again activating the Tickets for
Charity program, which includes more than 20 local youth
organizations. For every ticket sold by participating charity
organizations, 50 percent of the proceeds benefit that specific
charity. The remaining 50 percent supports AT&T National
beneficiaries. Call 301.365.6946 to find out how to participate.
