Tee It Up for the Troops to Benefit from Imperial Headwear’s  First Tour Visor™ Fundraiser

Auction will support seven nationwide organizations to kick off holiday season.

Tee It Up for the Troops is thrilled to announce a partnership with Imperial Headwear and renowned artists for Imperial’s first Tour Visor Fundraiser. The auction fundraiser is set to begin on Dec. 9 and run through Dec. 15 on imperialsports.com, with all proceeds benefiting the partner non-profit organizations.  

Imperial has teamed up with Tee It Up for the Troops, American Junior Golf Association, Evans Scholars Foundation, The First Green, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf, PGA Reach, and Youth on Course for the first Tour Visor Fundraiser. A single limited-edition Tour Visor was created for consumers and organization supporters to bid on, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the respective non-profit organization.

“The Tour Visor Fundraiser was an incredibly rewarding process of bringing together the non-profit organizations we currently support with renowned artists who can help bring their stories to life,” said David Shaffer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Imperial. “These Tour Visors are truly one of a kind and the auction winners for each visor will have an artistic piece that gives back to these wonderful organizations.” 

Each organization was partnered with an artist to create a single Tour Visor that epitomizes the mission, vision and values of the respective organization. A variety of artistic mediums was used, from painting and photography to graphic design. Imperial and Tee It Up for the Troops collaborated with Lee Wybranski to bring their visions to life.

“Tee It Up for the Troops is very proud to partner with Imperial Sports on this unique fundraising program,” said Tim Wegscheid, President of Tee It Up for the Troops. “Imperial has consistently ‘stepped up to the tee’ and stood by our side for several years as we have collaborated in support of America’s veterans and military families.  We were also very honored to work with such an amazing golf artist in Lee Wybranski in developing this collector’s visor. Thanks to Imperial and Lee for teaming up with us for this initiative.”

To bid on the limited-edition pieces in the Tour Visor fundraiser, please visit imperialsports.com from Dec. 9-15, 2019. Each Tour Visor bid will begin at $250.
