ORLANDO, Fla. -- Earlier in the week, Travelers kicked off its “Chipping Challenge” here at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where fans can take part in an interactive experience that includes taking a shot at a floating umbrella in the shape of the Travelers logo.
For every hole-in-one made there, Travelers will donate $100 to Camp Boggy Creek, Florida’s Hole in the Wall Camp, which is part of a group of non-profit residential summer camps serving children and families coping with cancer and other serious illnesses. Every fan who makes a hole-in-one will also receive an iPod shuffle or Titleist wedge.
In addition, D.A. Points will host a clinic there at 2:30 p.m. ET on Friday.
“Any time that we can raise money for [the Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital], I always try to be involved,” said Points, whose nephew Carson was treated there for neuroblastoma, which is one of the worst but curable cancers for children. “I've donated some of my own money, my wife and I have, and you know, it's nice that Travelers is doing this to help raise money for Mr. Palmer's hospital.”
